Rev D Markay

Minister – Rev Dave Markay

Dave has been with us since 2011 and is in charge of two other Methodist churches nearby, Apperknowle and St Paul's. Dave was ordained as a United Methodist minister (USA) in 1991. After some years of ministry in the States, Dave crossed the pond to minister in Lithuania and then in Italy before joining us here. His kindness and diligence in pastoral work are widely appreciated, along with his fresh perspectives and delightful sense of humour.  Dave and his wife Kristin (also an ordained Methodist minister) have two children.

Chief Steward – Mrs Libby Long

Libby says: "I have been worshipping at Coal Aston for 47 years and their pastoral visitor for over twenty years.  Caring for each church member and also the wider community is very important to me.  I think it is a way of spreading God's love and feel privileged to be allowed to do this.  My family live in Hull and Hathersage and my hobbies are walking in the Peak District, singing in a choir, visiting art galleries and the cinema."
