Suz believes strongly in Christians working together across the denominations and says this is why she works for the Church of England!

Church Treasurer & Elder - Mr Bryan Johnson

My parents were members of this church many years ago and so I  was taken to the church from a very early age. However, as I grew up into my teenage years I was encouraged to attend Sunday School and Youth Group. I was baptised and became a Church Member in March 1963.

As Church Treasurer I deal with all aspects of the financial operation of the church. Other areas of involvement include helping with the maintenance of church premises and providing transport for the elderly to attend church. If and when there is spare time Bryan enjoys train travel.

Deacon - Mrs Lynda Gilbert

Lynda joined a church youth club at the age of 15 and became a Christian soon after.  Having studied at Southbank University in London and obtained BSc (hons) in Occupational Therapy, she went on to work for the NHS for over 36 years both in physical and mental health settings.

Lynda is now retired and appreciating time with her husband, Phil, 2 daughters and 2 granddaughters. She enjoys reading, sewing (especially quilting), music, art and theatre, socialising with friends and family, and going away for short breaks in their touring caravan.  A trained mediator, Lynda also volunteers with a local mediation service. In church, she helps at ‘Little Treasures’, and is our church representative for the local foodbank, collecting and distributing goods as they are donated. Lynda is passionate about equality for people with any type of disability and has been the driving force behind our lift development project. She oversees our developing mission to the local community.


Deacon - Mrs Jan Rogers

Apart from a short time, Jan has lived in the Medway Towns all her life.  She has 2 sons and 3 grandchildren.  Before retiring Jan worked in payroll for many years, before making a complete change to working with the elderly with dementia – a job she really enjoyed.

She became part of our church 6 years ago and is responsible for pastoral care in the church community. She has had a faith from a young age and believes in respecting others of different faiths.

Jan enjoys talking with people, walking with her dog, gardening, and reading.
