Nigel is the Pastor of Forest Hill Community Church, and has led the church for many years. Seemingly everyone in South East London knows him, which is handy.
Jenny ThomasAssistant Pastor
Jenny has worked for the church for over 7 years. She focuses particularly on pastoral care, but is also involved in pioneering new initiatives such as Messy Church.
Uli is German in both origin and work ethic. She loves to be warm, to knit and to set the other staff members straight.
Sam CorryAssistant Pastor
Sam works a lot with the worship team, young adults, preaching and media stuff. He is known to forget nearly everything, and to eat lunch at 10am.
A lot goes on at Forest Hill, and we'd be scuppered without the help and work of our wonderful staff and volunteer teams that take on and lead different aspects of our church life.
We have a fantastic team of trustees who hold the legal and financial responsibility for FHCC
The Leadership Team are a crucial part of how FHCC works. They are elected by the congregation and meet monthly to discuss the vision, direction, doctrine and focus of Forest Hill Community Church.
THE YOUTH TEAM
Our youth team are an amazing bunch who devote hours of their free time every week to befriend, teach and nurture the young people of FHCC. They run youth weekends, social nights, bible studies, Sunday morning groups and outreach events.
THE WORSHIP TEAM
We are committed to worshipping God, and at Forest Hill we love to express that by coming into his presence together with singing and rejoicing. We devote a large part of our Sunday meetings to singing in worship together, and we love to use old and new songs, as well as older and younger worship leaders and musicians.
The worship team meet together regularly to worship and grow in skill together.
THE MISSIONS TEAM
We believe that God’s calling on his church is to bring his kingdom in all the world. We love to send short and long term teams and families around the world and support them financially, spiritually and pastorally. The missions team are a small group charged with overseeing care for overseas workers, keeping the issue of overseas work on the agenda of the church as a whole, as well as coordinating with iNet.
THE CHILDREN’S CHURCH TEAM
We love kids, and there’s plenty going on at Forest Hill designed especially for them. The Children’s Church team run the children’s group each Sunday morning for primary ages, combining great teaching, fun games and great activities. There are also regular film afternoons for children at Hope Centre, Malham Road.
We want to be great hosts. When new people come, they should be able to feel completely at home and welcomed into our fellowship. While this is the responsibility of the whole church, the Welcoming Team make sure that everyone is spoken to and has the opportunity to meet others, and be invited round to someone’s house for lunch really soon after they visit the church.
THE PASTORAL TEAM
The pastoral team oversees the pastoral needs of all the congregation, so that everyone is supported appropriately by the church and no one gets forgotten.
