Under the headship of the Lord Jesus Christ the church is led by a team of elders and deacons.
The elders are David Huband, Alan Lawer, Paul Kassell and Charlie Fadipe. Charlie is our full-time Pastor and heads up our leadership team.
Charlie is married to Rachel and they have two children Hannah and Jacob. In his free time Charlie enjoys watching Rugby and playing with his family. You might occasionally catch him going for a swim at the local pool!! Charlie trained as an Electronic Engineer and then went on to work in IT in banking. After 10 years in the city of London and a brief period as a missionary working in Cyprus (quite a tough gig!!) Charlie embarked on ministerial training with Proclamation Trust. Charlie then became the trainee pastor at Emmanuel Evangelical Church in Chippenham before becoming the pastor of Calne Free Church in April 2011.
David and Ruth have been married for over 25 years. David is a Project Engineer working for a local agricultural engineering company and is responsible for the design and construction of grain drying and storage installations. Ruth is a midwife, working in a local NHS hospital. They have three sons, Chris, Pete and William.
They are both very active in church life. David has been a leader for nearly 30 years and has various responsibilities within the church. Amongst her many tasks Ruth assists Charlie in the selection of hymns and songs for morning worship. She is one of the singing group.
Paul is from Yorkshire and moved to London to start work with BT but found a wife, Avril, as well! They stayed in London until their three children grew up and moved away. After a few years teaching in Tanzania, they moved to Calne, joining Calne Free Church. They love to walk and are delighted to be so close to the countryside. Avril helps in the Junior church on Sunday and is part of the team running Chatterbox for Parents and toddlers.
