General oversight at ECC rests with the Senior Minister and appointed ministers of the Church Council.
Others are responsible for the day-to-day management or ministry in specific areas. Of course, we are blessed with a wider team who faithfully lead or serve in our various departments - 'community' being one of our core values.
Deacons and house-group leaders are at the heart of life at Emmanuel in Ulverston. They aim to foster a sense of community by providing opportunities for members to build relationships, grow spiritually, receive support, pray and learn.
David & Lisa
The Smith's encourage, coach and support. They care for people's wellbeing and they want everyone to thrive. David is an elder and Lisa is a chaplain for young adults.
Paul & Karen
Deacons & Royal Rangers
The Sedgwick's want to make people feel loved, welcomed and connected. Hospitality and servanthood are gifts they display for the good of all concerned.
Youth Leader & Royal Ranger
