Organisation

 Not exactly the boring part, but this gives an idea of how the chapel life is organised: the committees, and who is the main point of contact for particular issues:
 
 
Minister      At present we have Rev'd John Palmer as minister with care of five congregations:
                     Baldwins Gate; Cross Heath; Newcastle; Wolstanton and ourselves at Higherland.
 
                    He also has the responsibility as circuit Superintendent Minister.
                                    
                    Contact with Ministers is via the circuit website www.northstaffordshiremethodists.org.uk
