As ‘Staff member with responsibility for music’, Denise is passionate about music and how it can enhance worship and unite the church family in praising
God.  Having been a member of Christ Church St Andrews since 1998, Denise has been in role since 2017 and authorised as an Authorised Lay Minister
(Worship leader) in 2018.  She helps lead with family Bay Ignite and supports with our primary school’s work.  She has recently been recommended for
