Older Person's Director
Sally Nevitt is Immanuel's Older Person's Director.
Telephone: 01202 424994
More about Sally:
"I have been the Older Person’s Director for 6 years and it is great to work with so many special people in such a wide range of activities. It’s exciting to be able to give older people the opportunity to develop new skills and seeing them use existing skills for the benefit of all ages. With my husband, Jon, I have been worshipping at Immanuel since I took on the role and enjoy the collaborative services and opportunity to use my gifts on a Sunday as well as in the week."
Gay Francia is Immanuel's Family Director.

Gay works with our pre-school age children, running the popular Penguins Toddlers and making visits to our onsite Puffins Preschool (to join in with play and a story).
