Minister and Deacons

Minister

who nextKBC is currently without a minster.

Our previous Minister Julia Binney left us in October 2018 to take up a role at Abbey Baptist Church in Reading. The church doesn’t stop without a minister, and we are really thankful for a number of local friends who have already agreed to lead our worship, whilst the Deacons continue the important role of leading a guiding the church.

In due time we have appoint Rev. Mike Stanbrook as moderator to help mentor the Deacons as they start to seek Julia replacement.

As in all things, we await Gods guidance!

Treasurer : Eric

EricNow Treasurer for rather more years than he’d care to remember, Eric also plays the piano in services and looks after the PA. He was brought up in a church going family, but met Jesus personally whilst at University when at a weekend retreat in North Wales. He was baptised in Knaphill in 1990 having been a member of the URC before moving to Knaphill.

An engineer by training, he now works for a national recruitment firm as a IT Architect, and enjoys the company of his wife Ruth and son Stephen.

Deacon and acting Secretary : Sohan

Sohan

Although he was brought up in Sikh household Sohan became a Christian when he saw the difference in 2 fellow students which they attributed to their belief in Jesus. Being a Christian hasn’t always been easy certainly not at university and then when work took him to Dubai for 4 years, where Churches were not allowed.

Sohan now runs his own media advertising agency and finds trying to apply Christian principal in a working environment brings its own challenges, but also rewards.

Socially he enjoys all sports and tries to spend as much time with his family as possible – who incidentally are not Christian.
