Who's Who?
Rev Philip Wagstaff
Taking up his appointment in September, in the middle of the Coronavirus pandemic, Rev Philip Wagstaff, it was almost a year before some of got to meet him in person.
I am glad to report that, when we did, we got to like him very well.
With four local churches to look after (and general oversight over several others) we don't see him as often as we would like, but his laid-back style fits perfectly with the Pett way of doing things,
Ken Hatch is currently serving as our Senior Steward, which means that is anything goes wrong, it's his fault. Blessed with an unfailingly optimistic nature and a sense of humour to match, he also plays a mean guitar.
Carol Shortman is our second Church Steward and is noteeworthy as a great encourager. She is very shy and doesn't like having her picture taken.
Laura Busby is our newest Church Steward. Her energy and enthusiasm are infectious, and she is often accompanied by her dog, Winnie, a well-loved (and very well behaved) member of the congregation.
Pett Chapel is blessed with no less than four Worship Leaders, and Keith Miller is one of them. Our resident musician, audio - visual technician, website designer and occasional song-writer. Click here for more about his creative output. Keith is also our church treasurer. In his spare time, Keith is also a keen thespian and Chair of the Fairlight Players .
More than just a Worship Leader, Wendy Hatch is one lady who is not afraid to put her faith into action. She was the driving force behind the establishment of Activate, a popular youth club serving Fairlight and the surrounding area.
Amy Godfrey is our Church Council secretary, and she has recently commenced studies to put her on the road towards becoming a local preacher.
The above are the current "office bearers" within the church. It would be unfair to select others to feature on this page as that might give the impression that some are valued more highly than others. That is, most assuredly, not the case. Like many families, we also have many friends, former members and regular visitors, spread far and wide, and now, by the wonders of technology, this website offers the opportunity to keep in touch.
