Many of you will know that over the past few years we have developed a core leadership team of 7 people: Stew Smith, Ed Hawkins, Jon Jolly, Joe Gisbey, Flix Gillett, Andy Harsant and myself.
After much discussion and prayer, Stew Smith and Ed Hawkins plan to step down from the core team. They have both given an incredible amount to the team and to the church but feel that their time in the core team has come to an end for now.
While this is a loss to the team, we have always wanted the leadership team to follow God’s calling and recognise there are times and seasons. Both Stew and Ed will continue to lead meetings and speak at church, but we would like to take this opportunity to thank them both greatly for all their hard work, energy and commitment which has helped to shape our church.
Ed and Stew are grateful to all of you for your support and encouragement over the last few years, and they’re excited to see what God has in store for this next chapter. Becca Jupp
