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

Minister and Community Champion

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, and a deep love for Kidderminster and the Wyre Forest growing 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 and leading, or being involved with general church activities. Sam also goes into the local schools, talking about fun ways to interact with the bible and the community.


If you need to contact Sam for a personal matter then Contact on:

Tel: 07578343594

However, Sam's working hours are Tuesday all day, Wednesday-Friday 9-3pm and Sunday all day, and we ask that you be respectful of these.

Paul Guille

Elder, Teacher, Chair of Trustees

Paul is crucial in the encouragement and general 'to do' lists we always need in life. He has a firm background in biblical teaching, and you will often find him teaching or leading in some way. Paul is always on hand 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 Guille

Church Administrator, Treasurer

Barbara runs our admin and data protection areas as well as being our Safeguarding officer.  She is also our point of contact if you would like to book the hall here at Franche
