Our team

FRANCHE COMMUNITY CHURCH consists of a team of people that facilitate the weekly progress of the church. Allow us to introduce them to you:

Franche Community Church Leaders

Sam and Emma Guille

Core Leaders

Sam is the Minister at Franche Community Church, husband to Emma, and the father of four very active children.

He holds a passion for the growth of people in the church and the wider community, with a deep love for seeing Kidderminster and the Wyre Forest grow in strength through the power of Jesus.

Sam's church involvement includes bringing vision and unity to the church, general management, and pastoral and ministerial care. You may also see Sam preaching, leading, or participating in general church activities. Additionally, Sam visits local schools to discuss fun ways to interact with the Bible and the community.

If you need to contact Sam for a personal matter, you can reach him at:

Email: pastoralcare.samg@gmail.com
Emma has a Pastoral heart and a deep care and love for the Community and those in it. As well as balancing a full time Job in the NHS, she is always there to lead and encourage people in ways that walk in line with Jesus' teaching.

Please note that Sam's working hours are Tuesday all day, Wednesday to Friday from 9 AM to 3 PM, and Sunday all day. We ask that you respect these hours.

Paul and Barbara Guille

Elder, Teacher, Chair of Trustees, Church Admin, Tresurer

Paul and Barbara tend to do many background tasks as well as teaching and leading the church in the vision we have for FCC. Paul is always available for support and expanding a biblical understanding of our world.

As Elder and Chair of Trustees, Paul helps to bridge the gap between FCC's Christian ministry and charity work.

Barbara speaks truth and clarity into our Church. She also manages our admin and data protection areas, serves as our Safeguarding Officer, and is the point of contact for booking the hall at Franche.

Richard and Heidy Hague

Church Leaders

Richard and Heidy have a big passion for Jesus and FCC. They aim to see the church grow and love to see people know Jesus more. Heidy helps with teaching on Sundays, while Richard has a strong passion for evangelism, sharing the good news of Jesus, and helping people grow in their relationship with Him. You will often find both of them praying for you and the church!

Robin Brown

Worship leader

Free worship is integral to Franche Community Church, as we come together to praise Jesus. We find space to pray, praise, and share testimonies with one another. Robin leads sung worship on Sunday mornings.

John Balcon

Food Bank Manager

John leads the Wyre Forest Food Bank ministry at Franche Community Church. He manages the administration, collections, and distribution of our food boxes across the Wyre Forest. We are currently delivering around 200 boxes each week to the local area.
