What about Church Membership?

Church membership is open to everyone who belongs to the Lord Jesus by personal faith, is living a consistent Christian life, and who - normally - has been baptised by immersion after coming to faith in him.

Church members meet together regularly for communion - that is, to remember the Lord Jesus as he requested. Meeting together for prayer and Bible study is also considered to be a priority.


The church has a Leadership group comprised of Elders, Deacons and Activity leaders.

The Elders, Geoff Chesworth, Keith Harding and David Speare, are appointed by the Elders. See 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:6-9.

The Deacons, who are responsible for the practical tasks associated with the work of the Church, are appointed by the leadership from suggestions from the Elders and Deacons. See 1 Timothy 3:8-13.
