Secretarial duties are carried out by a team of two Elders - the dot1named Secretary is Miss Dorothy Thomson and she is supported by Mrs Maranny Jones, the past Church Secretary, as Admin. Secretary.


Admin. Secretary


The role of named Secretary has assumed more duties in recent years and so Dorothy's admnistrative dutied are shared with Maranny.

The two worked together during Maranny's years as Secretary, so they have an understanding as to their respectives responsibilities.



Following the retiremet of our Treasurer of 22 years, a new Treasurer, Mr Peter Thomson, was been appointed from within our congregation. Peter is an accountancy professional.
