Deacons appointed (with specific areas of responsibility and to champion) in October 2017 are:
Discipleship & Mentoring: Emma Jones and Christ Doust.
“In the same way, deacons are to be worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain. They must keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience. They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons. In the same way, the women are to be worthy of respect, not malicious talkers but temperate and trustworthy in everything. A deacon must be faithful to his wife and must manage his children and his household well.”
[1 Timothy 3 : 8-12]
Deacons are appointed for a two year term.
