Our leaders

Terry

 

Terry, as lead elder, heads up our senior leadership team (we call it the Core Team!) We recognise his gift as an evangelist, regularly preaching the gospel and praying for healing.  He is married to Helen who is also one of the core team. They have two teenage boys.

Helen

 

Helen heads up pastoral care:- pro active care ( e.g marriage, parenting, singles and training courses ) and reactive pastoral care. She regularly preaches and is passionate for people to know Jesus more.

Martin

 

Martin led the team at Barnabas for over twenty years.  Now his local focus is teaching and social action, while he also runs training programmes for Christ Central Churches and the charity Jubilee Plus which he founded.  Martin is married to Jane and they have three grown up daughters and two grandchildren.

Dave

 

Dave has been an elder since 2008 and is married to Esther, with two children, Joy and Zac.  He oversees the running of the Church centre, midweek groups, helping new people integrate into the Church and our communications amongst other things.

Our Church is made up of people.

All sorts of different people.

What we have in common is faith.

Faith in Jesus Christ.

 

It is a personal faith in that each of us needs to make our own decision to follow Jesus.  And yet when we have made that step, we are drawn together with others like us into this living, changing, dynamic thing called Church.

 

Our Church is not a meeting,

although we have Sunday meetings.

 

Our Church is not a building,

although we have a Church centre.

 

Our Church is a fellowship, a coming together in unity, of followers of Jesus.

 

We are not the focus, Jesus is.
