Staff and Leadership

This page is designed to introduce the various members of the Staff team at All Saints and to describe the broad areas of responsibility each has. 

We are immensely blessed at All Saints by the dedicated and unstinting service of so many volunteers without whom the ministry could not function. Their LEADERSHIP service is greatly appreciated and valued. But we are always in need of more people to serve—in youth work, in ministry to the elderly, in outreach in schools, in maintenance and repair, in running the nuts and bolts of the many different aspects of church life. One of the main functions of the paid staff is to help build up the saints for the works of ministry.

We hope this page helps you see the varied work that goes on at All Saints— and that it stimulates you to be involved!
