The Minister

The church has a new minister! David Cumbers has come from from Essex, where he was a lay preacher and a leader in his local church. For the past four years he has been studying for ordained ministry at Westminster College, Cambridge. He shares the leadership of the church with elected local leaders (known as elders) and other church members.

  David is based in Hassocks, but is also minister to the United Reformed churches at Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath. He is married with three teenage children. His previous working background is in customer service. On being invited to become minister, David said: 'I am really excited to have been called to become the minister of the three churches. I am looking forward to us working together to help grow God’s kingdom in the Mid Sussex area.'
