We're Graham and Jan Dyer. Graham is the 'young churchwarden' who said we'd be back (see History); 30 years on, it's good to be part of Brickworks!
We came to the area in 1981 for Graham to take up teaching at Stourbridge College. We have raised our three daughters here .... all of whom attended Rufford Nursery. They are now grown up, two with their own children - our grandchildren - five of which come to Brickworks. Graham is now a Licensed Lay Minister and Jan is involved in an International Christian Ministry.
We take the protection and safety of children and vulnerable adults very seriously. All Volunteers in the church who work with children, youth or vulnerable adults are checked with the national Disclosure and Barring Service.
