We currently have six Deacons who undertake a variety of church responsibilities. All are dedicated Christians and will happily give you their testimony if you ask them! Each have a leadership role within our Small Groups. Our Deacons are:

Dave Ainscough: Oversees our general church fabric requirements and ongoing maintenance. Dave is also involved in our Open Air Outreach and Wheelers' activities. UBM (United Beach Missions) is a ministry close to Dave's heart and he regularly takes part in Summer missions around our British coastline. His wife, Debbie, is a teacher in our Sunday School.
Steve Foxall: Our Church treasurer, is a financial sector professional and therefore keeps our accounts running on straight and narrow guidelines! Steve also preaches occasionally. His wife, Sarah, helps to organise our Little Fishes 'parents and tots' activity and is a teacher in our Sunday School.
Ross Mackenzie: Is responsible for the overall organisation of our church's evangelistic outreach ministries. This includes involvement in the hosting and leading of our Christianity Explored courses and assisting in our monthly Open Air Outreach ministry. Ross also preaches occasionally. His wife, Maggie, organises our Community Lunches and helps coordinate our group of church musicians.
Rhidian Phillips: Has primary focus on organising and running our YP (Young People's Group) activities and ministering to their various needs. His wife, Bev, is also actively involved in the YP leadership and Sunday School teaching.
John Roberts: Our church secretary - a much underestimated role considering all of the time and commitment that is necessary to fulfill its requirements! He is also quite a handyman and undertakes a lot of the "behind the scenes" maintenance required to keep our church functioning practically. John and his wife Janet also get involved pastorally with many of the older folks in our Church simply by keeping in touch and building relationships with them. They are regularly involved in our Wednesday Fellowship.
John Sourbutts: Performs a leadership role in our Wheelers ministry and together with his wife, Lynette, gets involved in a variety of our other church works including the organisation of Sunday School and creche. Lynette is also involved in our YP (Young People's Group).
