Leadership Team & More

Adam and Alison are supported by people across the whole church who help bring together all the work that JMC does.

We have a volunteer leadership team which attempts to be a diverse grouping of our congregation who pray together and seek the vision for the Church. In addition to this, we have regular meeting task groups throughout the year such as Property and Finance, Gathered Worship, Eco-Justice Hub, Safeguarding, Discipleship & our Outreach, Justice and Evangelism group. These task groups are open to all whether you've been a part of the church for a few weeks or a number of years.
