Who's Who?

Rev Tricia Willams is the minister with responsibility for the pastoral care of the Pett "flock". Following the earlier than expected retirement of our previous minister due to ill health, Tricia sort of "inherited" us ("what a delightful inheritance" I can hear you saying).
With 12 churches to look after, plus a couple of nursing homes and a Methodist school, Tricia is a very busy lady and we don't get to see her very often. However, she is always ready to help when we need her, and is a great encourager.
You can get to know a little about the way Tricia's mind ticks by reading the Superintendent's Message on the Circuit website.
Ken Hatch is currently serving as our Senior Steward, which mean 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.
Tony Collins doubles up as a Church Steward and Church Council Secretary. Tony is a Methodist local preacher and book lover, married to Pen Wilcock. He sings with Hastings choir The Melodians, and occasionally commits carpentry.
Carol Shortman is our third Church Steward. She is very shy and doesn't like having her picture taken.
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. After hearing of work of the Mashudu project, she spent three weeks working for the project in South Africa.  Click here to read of her adventures
David Shortman, along with wife, Carol, and daugher Amy became members at Pett on Christmas Day, 2011. David very soon became actively involved in the life of the church, subsequently qualifying as an accredited Worship Leader.
Philippa Read is our fourth Worship Leader, using her talents mostly in her work with the children (perhaps largely because she is responsible for producing three of them). Philippa works for the Methodist Church, being responsible for Safeguarding work within the church across the South East of England.
Amy Godfrey is appointed as our local Safeguarding Officer, 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. Check out the section entitled "Old Friends" to meet some of them.
