Who are we?

Who are we?
As a local Church we follow Christ’s example and strive to be a beacon of light to our community. We are trying to make a difference through providing community support and social activities as well as sharing and celebrating our faith as we grow as a Church family together in God.

Our Church leadership team is headed up by our Co-Pastors, Rev.Jerry Newson and Rev. Neal Stanton. Jerry became our pastor in 2009, bringing with him a wealth of pastoral experience and a passion for helping the community, also developing the spiritual life of Tenterden. Jerry now serves as a part time minister. Jerry’s Christian leadership outlook is this; ‘we’re not about having it all together or even pretending we do. We as a Church family are trying to grow together toward a God who loves us, knows us, and can help us put all the components of our town and community into perspective. We may not have all the answers but we know who does! In fact He not only knows the answers…He made up the questions!

Neal who was ordained in June 2015 joined us from Seaford Baptist Church. He is keen to develop youth, children’s and family ministry as well as having a passion for mission, sharing Jesus through word and action with the whole community. Neal believes that Jesus is relevant for everyone and no one is too young or old to experience the gospel which is transformational. We are overseen by our three Elders, Rev. David Adkins, Ian Banks and Clive Perry and a team of 6 deacons plus a financial consultant.
