Linda Callan is our Administrator and Church Secretary.  She has led our administration team for over 20 years and as such, there is nothing she doesn't know about the life of Christchurch Baptist Church!  Should you contact the church office, it's very likely that Linda will be the one responding to your communication.

Mark Coleman is our caretaker and cleaner.  Mark has a passion for studying theology and is also actively involved leading various of our children's ministry programmes and activities.

The Ministers, Elders, Officers and Deacons of the Church form the Charity Trustees and Leadership Team. They work together in partnership to lead and guide the church in its vision and to encourage and equip Church Members to play as full a part as possible in the life and witness of the church.
