Wider church

Most Sundays Jeff leads worship at Trinity. He is a gifted preacher, speaking in plain language, based on the bible stories, grounded in life today.

During the week Jeff takes time to meet with people and groups, and also quiet time to do his worship preparation. Contacting the office is the best way to arrange a meeting, or send Jeff an e-mail.
