Christ church leadership

Christ Church is presbyterian in structure, which means elders are the responsible leaders,

and we have more than one pastor or elder leading together.

Our pastor came on board in January 2019, 

so we are now blessed with a pastor, elder and two deacons.


See Acts 20:17, 28 and 1 Peter 5:1-4
