Brookside Church is one of several churches the Peterborough circuit. This circuit has a staff which includes two ministers, a mission and outreach worker, a youth worker and an administrator. The minister with special responsibility for Brookside is Rev. Langley Mackrell-Hey.
Worship is led by a minister or a lay preacher who is supported by our Worship Leaders, musicians and readers.
Pastoral Care A dedicated team of people provide first line pastoral support to members, working with our Minister and a commissioned Pastoral Assistant.
Young People We have several groups for young people, led by committed volunteers. You can see how much is done by looking on our Organisations page or the individual web pages of the groups that meet here. Our Sunday Club meets every Sunday morning; details can be found on the Sunday Services page.
The Church Council meets three or four times a year and it is at these meetings that all important decisions are made. Members of the Church Council (also known as Trustees) are elected annually at the General Church meeting, or are appointed by the Church Council to represent the work undertaken by Brookside Church.
Some people serve on various committees (e.g. Property, Finance, Events, and Family) that oversee the different aspects of church life. Each of these committees report to the Church Council.
Also elected by the General Church meeting are the Church stewards. We currently have a team of three stewards responsible for the our worship.
We are fortunate at Brookside to have a Leadership team with a wide range of experience and skills. Other important people who have a key role within our church are the Treasurer, the Church Council Secretary and the Property Secretary.
Working together as a team we support each other and do our best to serve our Lord, our congregation and the local community.
Brookside Church is a registered charity. An Annual Report is submitted every year and information is available on the Charity Commission website.
