We are delighted to announce that we have successfully appointed a new Finance Manager to the central office team. Jill Steer will be joining the team in January. She previously worked at the Jesmond Trust in Newcastle where she was the Finance Manager for three large Anglican churches and their parent charity. For the last four years she has been back in the business world. She is a chartered accountant and has experience of training finance staff. She also has a strong desire to serve God’s Kingdom and to use her finance skills to that end. Jill is currently using these skills in her local church, Holy Trinity Gateshead, where she is the treasurer.
We are greatly indebted to Jayne Coleman who will be finishing in the role mid-November. Her work in leading the finance team and developing our finance systems has strengthened our finance structures significantly. We wish her every blessing in her new job.
Andrew Giffen (CEO) said, “The Finance Manager is a crucial role within our denomination. Good financial management is a key aspect of progressing our Healthy Gospel Church vision and I am grateful to God for his provision of a replacement for Jayne. I am very much looking forward to Jill starting with us at the beginning of next year. Do please remember Jayne and Jill in your prayers as they make these transitions.”
Please also join us in praying for God’s leading in the appointment of a replacement Legal & Compliance Officer. We said farewell to Muriel Macleod at the end of September and were able to celebrate her faithful service and the help that she had provided to many congregations over the years.
