Eldership

North Teignmouth Community Church is led by an Eldership team of four.


Ray Hodgson Elder

Ray Hodgson is married to Joy. They have 3 children and 5 grand-children.

A Christian since he was 13, Ray has been an Elder at NTCC for 5 years having previously been involved in different roles in other Churches including Youth Work, House Groups and Deacon. God's ability to be his constant companion and guide is a strong part of Ray’s Christian experience. Because of that he has a passionate desire to reach those who have fallen foul of the world's problems with the good news of the love of Jesus. In his own journey of faith God has been a faithful provider through many difficult circumstances. That has stimulated Ray to head up the Church's "Making a Difference" work which helps serve needy people and mainly those who are not currently church attendees.


John Kelly Elder

John Kelly is married to Lorraine and has four children, Neil, Andy, Dave and Sue, and three grand-children, Oliver, Tessa and Jacob. 

They have lived in Teignmouth since 1985. John has taught mathematics for thirty eight years, the last sixteen at Trinity School in Teignmouth.

John became a Christian at age 32, largely due to the witness of his own Christian pupils at Teignmouth Grammar School. 

Since then he has been a member of Chudleigh Parish Church, Teignmouth Baptist Church and now North Teignmouth Community Church.
