Rev. John Wessels BA (Rhodes), B Th Honours (Rhodes). I consider myself privileged to have the opportunity to serve as senior Minister here. This is a very special congregation with many people giving an enormous amount of their time and resources to be part of the life and work of the church here. I have a strong sense that God has a call for us to grow significantly as a congregation and go to the next level as a church. Exciting years lie ahead of us! I thoroughly enjoy trail running and survive well if I have a weekly dose of trail, veldt and koppies. It is the great and deep joy for me to share life with the wonderful family that I am blessed with – Angela (wife), Ashlynn (daughter) and Luke (son).

John Wessels: Senior Minister –


My name is Londeka Mabaso, originally from Pietermaritzburg but now I’m Joubarg. I am one of the ministers of gospel at Trinity Methodist Church, in Linden. 2017 is my 8th year in Ministry, and in these years I have grown as a person and a minister. My Ordination is by far the best experience I’ve had, and it has influenced my ministry positively. Once a Pirate always a Pirate.

Londeka Mabaso: Minister –




I am a Pastor at Trinity with a focus on preaching, worship across all services, welcoming New Members into the church and other Membership Portfolio related projects. For over ten years I have worked as a Pastor in Methodist Churches in Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth. I am also a qualified teacher; as such I am continually looking for the links between community building, personal development and ministry. I believe I am a caring and friendly person and derive great joy from preaching and other aspects of ministry. I enjoy spending my free time with my family, reading and being in the outdoors.

Brett Mordaunt: Lay Pastor  –



Hi, I’m Kate Waterston and have grown up at Trinity. I am married to my wonderful husband, who I met at Trinity, and I have 2 beautiful young girls. I love working with children and am inspired by how they see the world. I love being outdoors, and am at my happiest with a book or fishing rod in my hands. I love spending time with my family and I feel really grateful to be part of the Trinity family

Kate Waterston: Children’s and Young Family Pastor –




I am an Occupational Therapist who has grown up at TMC and now am privileged to oversee all Youth and Young adults’ ministries. I have a heart for mission and serving others. I love board games and am always up for a challenge, but please note in advance that I am a bit of a sore loser. And I love cows…Like a lot!

Lauren Graham-Parker: Youth and Young Adults Pastor –





My role is to co-ordinate the Pastoral Care at Trinity Methodist Church. My working background is in Social Work and I enjoy being able to bring together my skills and my faith in serving in a church community. I am married to John and we are parents of a young adult daughter and a teenage son. For relaxation I love to walk anywhere in nature or read a good book.

Admin Staff


I am married and have two grown up daughters, one is married and lives in the UK and the other one lives in Fourways.  29 years ago we moved to this area and 22 years ago I started working in the Church office as the Children’s Church Secretary.  Six months later I was employed as the Admin Assistant and continued my duties as Children’s Church Secretary in the afternoons.  In 2002 I took on the position of Secretary and a few years later I took on the role of Receptionist/Property Administrator.   One could say that I am like the antique furniture I enjoy walking and have a real love for animals. 

Melanie Parfitt: Receptionist/Administration assistant –


I’m doing the “Year of your life” programme at Trinity for this year which I am very excited about. I’ve been coming to Trinity for 10 years now but I only became actively involved in church life in 2015 when I started the Seekers confirmation programme.
This year I’ll be involved in Office Admin, Outreach and Youth ministries – I especially love Holiday club! I enjoy books, movies and music and I’m always ready for a cup of tea and a chat.
