These are some of the key people who make church life work:
Church Wardens – Gary Davies, Ian Goodson
Gary and Ian have responsibility to keep Holy Trinity warm and dry for our meetings, the support and challenge the vicar and are allowed to arrest troublemakers! Gary is a West Bromwich lad, who was married to Gill at Holy Trinity in 1984 and they both stayed on after their wedding. Ian arrived in West Bromwich as a Methodist local preacher but transferred to Holy Trinity.
Families and Community Worker – Helen Morrow in the amazing grace of the Lord, Helen has been in West Bromwich since 2012 with her faithful dog Freddie, working in the parish as Families and Community Worker. She is a good friend to many in our community and is responsible for leading our youth and children’s work and training leaders and parents to teach the next generation about Christ.
Lay Reader – Chris Pegler
Chris is a retired primary school teacher and has a real heart for ministry to the very youngest as well as the oldest of the parish and so runs Trinity Tots and our social afternoon. She is a licensed lay reader and so knows a thing or two about the bible and prayer, running a prayer meeting on Tuesday mornings and assisting on Sundays. She is very well organised, so if you want to know anything about what is happening and when, Chris will probably know.
Volunteers Minister in Training – Kevin Greally
Kevin joined the ministry team full time at Holy Trinity in November 2016. He longs to see men serving Christ and the community as Christ first served us, by putting the needs of others before his own. Kevin leads a small group bible study fellowship, he’s a man of prayer and he’s a dab hand in the kitchen, so keep a watch for future events with loads of lovely food.
Director of Music – David Partridge
David joined Holy Trinity in 2014 and is a gifted musician. He has led our singing praise to God at Holy Trinity since September 2015 and is now building and training a band. If you can play an instrument or love singing, then David is the man to ask.
Vicar – Neil Robbie
Neil is a Scotsman who was led to heartfelt faith in Christ in Aberdeen as a twenty-something. Since then he has lived in London, Cambridge, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Wolverhampton before coming to West Bromwich. He is married to Amanda and they have three children, all in different secondary schools. Neil blogs at Transforming Grace. His main role at Holy Trinity is to oversee the teaching and preaching of the word of God, to help everyone follow Jesus together and to unblock drains.
