Who We Are

Leadership Team

The Minister

Our Minister is Rev Dr Jacky Quarmby, who came to Newmount  in September 2021. Here is a little more about her.
I am Jacky and I am married to Neil.  My background is in mathematics and before my ordination as a Methodist minister in 1997, I spent four years lecturing in Statistics at Bristol University.  Since my ordination I have served churches in South Manchester and North Bristol and while in Bristol also worked part-time at Wesley College Bristol, a training college for Methodist ministers and at John Wesley’s New Room, the oldest Methodist chapel in the world.

Because of my teaching background, I have spent sixteen years of my ministry working as a Chaplain in two Methodist Boarding Schools, Kent College in Tunbridge Wells and most recently Farringtons in Chislehurst.  There I led worship, took weekly assemblies and taught GCSE and A-Level mathematics – a very rewarding combination.

When not working, Neil and I like to go cruising on our narrowboat.  We have owned our boat for nearly ten years now and in that time have cruised north as far as Lancaster, west to Bristol, east to Boston and south to Godalming.  It is always very relaxing and a wonderful way to see the country.


The Stewards

The Church Stewards are a representative body of elected members, who co-ordinate with other committees within the church. We work as a team, meeting regularly to discuss, plan and pray for all aspects of the life of our Church. We are active in many groups and activities of the church.
