Church Secretary & Elder - Mrs Suzanne Rogers

Suz has been part of our church since she was a teenager. As well as being Church Secretary, she is also one of our Elders and helps lead our Kingsquad, PowerHouse, and Sunday School. Suz believes strongly in Christians working together across the denominations and that's why she works for the Church of England!

In her spare time, Suz likes to read and surf the net.  Whilst not exactly the sporty type, she loves boxercise and yoga, and can also be persuaded to run or cycle on occasions.

Church Treasurer & Elder - Mr Bryan Johnson

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

As Church Treasurer Bryan deals 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 was the driving force behind our lift development project.

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