As with all churches, there’s a lot of people involved in the work we do at SCC. Here’s some of those you might want to know – it isn’t the important people, it’s just those that have a title.
The church is currently looking for a new pastor with our regional leader from Elim. We have a retired pastor, Malcolm Hathaway, who is preaching and doing some of the work of the pastor for the moment (and a great job he’s doing!). We have an interim leadership team, consisting of Malcolm, Paul Dixon-Box (our treasurer), Shirley Bennett (our church administrator) and Tim Sharp & Tom Sparrow (who have both been Elders in the church over the last few years),
We have a whole host of other people running things in the background. I can’t name them all, or this would turn into a church directory but they’re all vital for what we do. God wouldn’t have put them here otherwise.
So, to put some names and faces to the titles:
I also run the website, so you can blame me when it’s out of date. Unfortunately, that is pretty frequently but Shirley is going to help me sort that out.
Shirley Bennett – Church Administrator
Shirley is married to Nigel and has 4 children, all of whom are now grown up enough that they don’t count as children any more.
Norma Moore – Caretaker
Norma keeps everything together in the church during the week. She put chairs out and then puts them back again. She locks, unlocks, cleans tidies.
After hours, she has Barry and 2 daughters to look after. I don’t suppose they really need looking after, but that doesn’t stop Norma.
