Who is the leader of this church? - well Jesus is really and he works through the whole body of believers by His Holy Spirit. We all have different gifts; some are helpers, some are administrators and some are good at hospitality. Some are teachers, some are especially good with young people and some are leaders. No one function is any more important than the other. Although we do have leaders, we take very seriously that from Jesus' point of view a leader is one who serves.
On 22nd October this year Rev Neil Douglas was inducted as our Minister. He, together with the Elders and Deacons form the Leadership Team and as such are the Church Trustees.
We employ part time, Leigh and Rebecca Coates who head up Hope Whitby Missional Community, and Karl and Sue Jones who are our Family Workers, incorporating the youth and children's work. Karl also heads the Crossboard Surf Community.
