Staff Team

We have about 300 ministers at Danbury Mission – i.e. the whole Church!

We believe that the church is a place where everyone is able to use their gifts to help each other. It might be leading a service, driving the minibus, visiting somebody who is sick or helping out at a youth club. Our aim is to help each other develop those gifts and use them for the good of the church.

However, there are a team of men and women who work on behalf of the church in a number of roles to help us serve our community – these are the staff.
