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 Christine Legge as minister with care of four congregations:
Cross Heath; Madeley; Silverdale and ourselves at Higherland.
Rev'd Singleton has the responsibility as circuit Superintendent Minister.
Contact with Ministers is via the circuit website www.northstaffordshiremethodists.org.uk
Church Council : Main ‘governing body’ of the local church
