Other Leaders


Alongside Paul, Martin, Jacquie and Deanna there is a group of Deacons who are elected by the members of the church and who bring servant leadership and formal oversight to the whole life of the church.  Each deacon looks after some elements of the life of the church, meeting regularly for discussion and reflection on God's will. 

Kairos Coffee is run by a management group from the church, but also employs 3 members of staff who oversee the day to day running of the shop. Debbie is the manager, alongside two assistant managers and a team of volunteers.
