Sarah Amos


Sarah is our caretaker here at SMC, she has been a dedicated part of our team since 2005. She checks in on our church building regularly and makes sure it is constantly looking clean and tidy. Although Sarah often works behind the scenes and is not seen by many, she is a key member of our church family as we wouldn’t be able to hold all the groups we do without her.
