Church stewards are right at the heart of the local church.
Working as a team with other stewards and helpers, and alongside the ministers, they have responsibility for the full scope of the church’s life and activities.
This key role means that church stewards have the responsibilities of leadership in church affairs.
This means that they need to:
- have vision and good planning skills
- be caring, supportive, and mindful of other’s needs.
Church stewards work in a voluntary capacity, so responsibilities are balanced alongside personal commitments, family and social life.
No one becomes a steward overnight. The appointment may be swift, but time is needed to grow into the office. Prayer must be part of this and indeed prayer must support the whole work of the Church.
Stewards take turns each Sunday. One Steward with one Vestry helper is on duty each service with Communion Stewards assisting the Minister at Communion services.
|Stewards||Communion Steward||Vestry Helper|
|Ian Williamson (Snr)||Ray Hallett||Lena Smith|
|Diane Perry||Donald Wroe||Steve Owen|
|Jean Muldoon||Hazel Turner||Stuart Roberts|
|Pat Roberts||Irene Crabtree|
Unfortunately, during the Coronavirus pandemic when our church is closed, our stewards can’t undertake their normal duties, however, please feel free to contact them to pass on information or ask about church matters.
If you are a church steward you will know that you rely a great deal on your organisational strengths and deep reserves of patience!
