Leadership Team

Trinity Methodist Church, Codsall, relies on the developing team work, led by the following people:


Rev Dr Joanne Cox-Darling   Helen Share
Joanne has been our minister since September 2017. Joanne has a range of skills and interests, especially in church growth, cultural studies, and mission. She is a gifted communicator, and her most recent title 'Finding God in a Culture of Fear' is available in all good bookshops. Joanne is chair of the Christian Enquiries Agency, and is a trustee of the Southlands Methodist Trust supporting the educational work at the University  
Helen is Church Administrator, PA to the ministerial team, and a member of the Leadership Team.
She is in the office on Mondays and Tuesdays, and late Thursday mornings during 'normal' times, although at the moment she is working from home. If you are interested in helping any of our programmes or services run well, please contact Helen as she holds the rotas, and would love you to be involved!

Jenny Hall      Steve Brown
Married to Nadine, we have two children, Wendy and Martin. I played football from 1969-1984 for two leagues in the Wolverhampton area. In 1985 we moved to Wednesfield to be near family and began attending Wednesfield Methodist Church, where I eventually became Senior Steward, until 2017 when sadly the church closed. We became members shortly afterwards at Trinity where I have been a steward for nearly two years. A year ago we moved to a bungalow in Wednesfield, where I have taken up gardening!
Alan Eccles   Rob Turton
Alan is married to Julie. He is a retired civil servant. He is a local preacher, and has been on the full plan since 1987. He has worshipped at Trinity since 1985. His other interests include being the Chair of the Board of the Bible Society, and is a trustee of Methodist Central Hall, Westminster.  Alan enjoys gardening, travel and people!

Rob is a Chartered Accountant who has been involved with Church Finance for 40 years, both as a Circuit Treasurer for two different Circuits at different times, and also as a Church Treasurer. He sits on the Audit Committee of the Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury Methodist Circuit. Rob is a lifelong Methodist, having worshipped from as a boy in Long Eaton to a man of years in Wolverhampton.
In any spare time he has, Rob is an avid follower of cricket and football and loves to travel, especially to be with his daughter in Seattle.

Although a fairly new resident of Codsall, I have been a friend of the church for a long time. My wife Jane lived and worshipped here before we married and as a visiting Local Preacher, I’ve led worship at the 9:30 service for some years. In addition to preaching, I have a strong passion for bible study and teaching.

I am retired, love all things to do with technology and have a particular weakness for guitars. I have a grown-up daughter who lives in Worcester.

I am the oldest of 7 children and come from a longstanding Methodist family, going back many generations. I met my wife, Helen, through my twin brother, and moved to Codsall when we married. I love singing from choir chorale, through traditional hymns to contemporary songs. 
In my time at Trinity I have been a steward, and am involved in the worship ministry. I have recently been appointed Treasurer to Brewood and Coven Methodist Churches.


Steve Fearnley    
My earliest memory of Jesus is being taught in a tiny Methodist chapel in Littleborough when I was around 8 or 9 years old.
When we moved to Fleetwood, I continued to attend the local Methodist Church where I became a choir member and Sunday School teacher. After leaving university I married Sue and lived in London with little church contact. Since moving to Wolverhampton, I have taught in Sunday School, am a choir member and leader of One Voice (worship group), a member of the Property Group and, most recently, qualifying as a Worship Leader.
Christ is central to my life, and I continue to learn more of the ways of Jesus.
