Deacons and Deaconesses

We have a dedicated team of Deacons and Deaconesses at the Chiswick SDA church.

The Deacons and Deaconesses assist in facilitating all church meetings. Any needs and/or concerns should be reported to the Head Deacon/Deaconess, or any available member of the team as soon as possible, so that they can be addressed quickly and efficiently. Regular meetings are scheduled to address various issues and provide training.

The Deaconry department assist the Pastoral team and other officers with duties, such as with home communion.
