Minister, Staff and Support at Emmanuel
Minister of Emmanuel United
Rev Sadekie has been the Minister since September 2015. She is passionate about making connections between faith and day-to-day living. She believes that what we do at Emmanuel should impact the community and support all areas of our congregational life.

She is warm, inspiring and faith filled with the added gift of bursting into song at any moment during a sermon.
