Simon Redmill is on the Leadership Team and is a full-time member of staff.
The office team also comprises a number of part-time staff and volunteers:
Jen’s role is to manage the finances, budgets and resources. Jen also oversees our communications by putting together our fortnightly bulletin and managing our social media pages on Facebook and Twitter.
Jen volunteers with Baby Basics.
Heather volunteers in the office one morning a week and gets to do all the fun bits so that the rest of the team can focus on the big stuff (her words, not ours!).
Heather laminates, cuts, folds, makes badges, updates rotas, enters data, puts letters in envelopes and is an all round star.
Heather also volunteers with Pacemakers.
Rosie helps run Little Acorns Toddler Group. Rosie is married to Joe, they have three daughters.

Robin is our Youth Leader. He serves with our HotHouse youth group for our 11-18 year olds. Robin oversees our teaching, mentoring, pastoring and activity programme for the Sunday morning and evening sessions and our other youth events, such as Newday.
Robin’s key aim is to help our young people grow in their relationship with Jesus, as disciples who make disciples. He leads the team of adult volunteers and keeps the eldership and church up to date with the development and welfare of the church youth.
Robin generally works Fridays in the office and on Sundays.
Naomi is our Children's Leader, her role is to co-ordinate the children's groups and teams of volunteers across both our Amesbury and Salisbury sites.
This includes helping our hardworking volunteers to feel supported and guided, getting to know the children and ensuring Sunday mornings in children's groups are fun and faith-building - no matter the child's age.
Naomi also volunteers with Baby Basics.
Liz does some of the administrative work, including making bookings and some event admin. Liz works in the office, usually on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Ruth is our Welcome and Integration Co-ordinator. She volunteers in the church office, usually on a Monday. She oversees the welcoming of anyone who comes along to Grace Church on a Sunday.
Ruth also co-ordinates invitations to an Alpha or Exploring Membership course and / or a relevant social event. Ruth works closely with other members of the office team in order to integrate new people into church life as quickly and effectively as possible.
Ruth loves interacting with people and finds many aspects of her role very rewarding! Ruth also volunteers for our Alpha team.
Every number has a name. Every name has a story. And every story matters to God.
