Our Team

Every member of Christ Central has a role in creating the kind of church we’ve been called to be.  This page exists as a snapshot of the people on team that you may need to get in touch with as you make your home here with us.

A biblical church is a church that engages all its members in supporting, encouraging and building one another up.  Life Group leaders are the primary people to turn to if additional care or support is required.  The Pastoral Support Team exists to help Life Group leaders by providing specialist care, and they can connect individuals within the church to others who have gone through similar experiences so that they can journey together.  The five main areas of care are: practical support, relationships, mental wellbeing, financial and life controlling habits.

The role of deacon was a well-established and vital one for the early church. Working alongside the elders, deacons took on the primary responsibility for practical serving within the church. Deacons are those individuals who are serving the church as the head of a significant ministry area and meet the character qualifications listed in 1 Timothy 3: 8-10.

The church is served by a team of Elders that meet the requirements of 1 Timothy 3.  Elders are primarily responsible for the care of the church and the teaching of the Bible, as we pursue our vision together as a family. The Elders’ wives share the same heart and passion for the church and are a vital part of the team here at Christ Central.
