Licensed Lay Minister
Lesley joined St Martin’s church in 1989. Licensed as a Lay Minister in 2010, she values this ministry which enables ordinary church members to play an active part in church life, especially in preaching and leading worship.

Children & families Minister
Gill has been the Children & Families minister at St Martin's since 2019. She is married to Phil and has 3 children.

Her passion is to facilitate families in their own personal discipleship, to grow in their love for God, each other and creating a thriving community.
Sue and her family have been members of St Martin's since 2018 when they sensed God encouraging them to be part of their local church, and have enjoyed growing friendships and learning more from Jesus here. Sue works as a childminder and is involved in leading Sunday groups for children and young people. She also loves leading prayer in Sunday services and getting to welcome local families into the midweek Jolly Tots group
