BUT WE CAN’T FORGET

Our Volunteers

The real backbone of the church is our volunteers. It takes all kinds of people to make community happen. Our Sunday gatherings are created live, by an amazing group of volunteers who make up our Media, Worship, First Impressions, Prayer, and Hospitality teams. Volunteers also lead our Kidtopia and Little Lights Children’s Ministry Teams, our Life Groups and part of our Leadership Team.

Made up of our Churchwardens, the Incumbent, senior staff, some ministry leaders,  and church elders, the leadership team sets and protects the mission of the church, ensures that community has the resources it needs to operate effectively and lends spiritual, fiduciary and strategic guidance to the Corporation in accordance with the Cannons of the Diocese.

Churchwardens: Mary Walsh (Rector’s Warden), and Jevan Ballantyne (People’s Warden)
