In the last couple of months we’ve said goodbye to two of our elders and we just wanted to take a minute to recognise each of them and to pray God’s blessing on them in this new chapter of their lives!
One of our elders Peter Motteram and his wife Maggie relocated a couple of months ago to West Sussex. Peter served faithfully as an elder for many years, Maggie was a key member of our missions committee, was a prophetic voice in our services and together they ran a very successful home group.
Hans Sims, another one of our elders left at the end of July to move to Norway with his Wife Jo and two sons. Hans served as an elder for the last few years, and was very involved with the New Life football team. Jo was our CAP Dept Centre manager and helped many people get out of debt, and served in several other initiatives and ministries over the years including the Life leadership team together with Hans.
Three of our staff have recently moved on and we want to thank them for all their hard work and commitment while they were working with us. We’ve said goodbye to Gloria who worked in our pre-school, Bekhi our youth intern and Dele who provided maternity cover in our media department.
We also want to recognise and welcome a number of new staff members. Christian Sana has joined us on part time basis to help develop our Connect Group structure. Amanda Austin has replaced Jo Sims as our CAP Debt Centre Manager. Emily Darnborough has joined the pre-school team and Jade Nolan is our new youth and children’s intern. Please pray for them as they settle into their new roles.
