There are currently two people in the main leadership of our church as well as a number of people in various other roles. We have a team approach to ministry.
Michael Garry (Elder)
Michael and his wife Sylvia started attending Hattersley Community Church in spring 2007 after they had sensed a call to worship back in Hattersley. Prior to this they had been involved in church life in Oldham. There they had been involved in a homeless ministry and a Christian charity shop that reached out to Muslims, and they worshipped in an Iranian fellowship.
Michael became a church leader of Hattersley Community Church in January 2009 and is involved in preaching, leading a Neighbourhood Group and evangelism.
In his free time Michael loves to go out driving in the country, or to the beach, and sampling the local fish and chips!
Simon Davidson (Elder)
After worshipping at Mottram Evangelical Church for 2 and a half years, Simon and his wife Sandra moved to Hattersley in October 2001 to volunteer with the newly launched EDEN Project and become part of the fellowship of the soon to be established Hattersley Community Church. At that time Simon was working full time in hotel management but in May 2004 became a full time Youth & Community Worker, working alongside the EDEN Team Leader. In September 2008, Simon was made the EDEN Team Leader. This role has now developed into Executive Director of Lifecentre Hattersley.
Simon became a church leader in January 2009 and is involved in preaching and leading the church youth group. Simon can usually be found climbing up or skiing down a mountain, or diving in warm water - in fact the more dangerous the activity the more he enjoys it!
