Kate Young   Margaret Barber
Kate joined us as the Minister-in-Training in September 2018, working 3 days per week in the fellowship. She is married to Bill, has a cat and 2 grown up children. She studies at Spurgeon's College two days per week. 

When she is not doing these things, she does very occasional work as a Principal Lecturer in Nursing at the University of Hertfordshire, supervising doctoral and MSc Nursing Students.

Kate loves being around people; there's nothing like the rich variety of people of all shapes, sizes, nationalities and viewpoints to enliven her day.
  Margaret is our Treasurer and is married to Keith. They have 4 adult children. Margaret is musical and plays in our worship team, helping us to sing praises to God each Sunday.

She also leads our 'Hear the Story' ministry into Cotton End Forest School, after many years of working with 'Open the Book' which is also led by another member of our church family.

Angela Stimson   Rob Case
Angela is our interim Church Secretary.  She is passionate about building a community locally, care of the elderly as well as the role of women in the church. Angela is also a keen gardener.

Angela says "If you have a question please email me via our contact page and I will either get you an answer or put you in touch with the best person to help you". 
  Rob is a Deacon assisting the Treasurer as he has over 30 years of banking experience. He is married to Lou and they have 2 adult children. They moved from Stevenage to Bedford in 2011. After an initial period of rest following significant involvement in their previous church they found CEBC to be a friendly place to worship and become part of the fellowship. He is also involved with worship occasionally and is also involved in working with the young folk in the church and Messy Church.
Rob loves all sports and still (just about) manages to play league badminton as well as enjoying social badminton with Lou and a number of the CEBC families. He is an Arsenal season ticket holder, which is a good way to enjoy time with his son Alex.
