Revd Wayne Hawkins
My name is Wayne and I am the minister at Guildford URC. I am responsible for leading worship and working with the Elders to give direction and leadership to the church. You can often find me in church chatting and meeting with people to make everyone feel welcome and included.
Being Church Secretary is more about supporting ‘Church’ than being a ‘Secretary’. I’m a key contact between our congregation and our community, locally and wider afield. I support the work of the Minister, Elders and staff team forming a link between them and all in the congregation. I help make the Church tick!
My name is Sarah Howe and I am the Administrator. I work in conjunction with Wendy Dunnett, and help her with administrative tasks, to help everything run smoothly and efficiently within the church. I love working as part of the church community and making a difference.
Director of Music
Hello! As Director of Music I look after the music for Sunday worship (organ, piano, choir and music group). I also lead our community orchestra XY Strings, children’s music group Movers and Shakers and online choir, and am part of the Guildford Music Society@GURC team.
Children & Families Worker
Hi, I’m Nicky and I’m responsible for anything that covers youth, children or families work (which basically means I get to be a big kid most of the time!) Please get in touch if you have any questions over provision for young people, I am always happy to help.
Hi, I’m Jess! I help the church connect to our community in order to reduce loneliness and social isolation among our neighbours. This includes hosting a weekly dementia-friendly group, a bring-and-share lunch and intergenerational music-making. I also work on building mutually beneficial relationships with other local charities and community leaders.
Well done. It looks like you have found me (I hope the picture isn’t too bad!). I’m the caretaker, so if you need a room booked, or you’ve lost a water bottle, when you can’t reach the plug or you find a chair is broken I’m your man. E mail, text or phone me and I’ll do my best to take care (see the play on words – caretaker) of you.
