We have a leadership team of ‘elders’ who are responsible for the running of our Church and the care of its members.

This team meets every month to review and plan what happens at Church Lane.

We are currently focusing on how we share our purpose and Vision for the church under the three headings:

| Discover Introducing people to Jesus through our church family activities.

| Follow Encouraging each other to trust Jesus and follow his teaching. 

| Share Encouraging and supporting each other to share the good news about Jesus wherever we may be through what we say and do.
