Martyn Filsak

Hi.  I’m Martyn.  Many of you will have known me for a while already as I have been a local preacher in this circuit since its formation, and prior to that in the Stour Valley and Stour Vale circuits.  Some of you will have encountered me at Circuit Stargazing or other astronomy-themed events that I have been involved in.  My membership is at the United Church, Lye, since 2006.

My work experience elsewhere has been varied, and has included working as an administrator and training provider in Local Authority settings, an adult education tutor for statistics, maths and astronomy courses, and a Methodist Lay Worker in South Wales.  Before my first lay worker post I studied for a year at Cliff College.

I would like to run a series of studies on God and Science, looking at evidence from science, history, archaeology and philosophy that backs up the story of our faith.  If this would be of interest in your church or home group, please contact me.

Current responsibilities:

  • From 1 September 2022 assist the ministers of Providence, Birch Coppice, Wesley and Dudley Wood with pastoral care and the general running of the churches
  • Help with particular initiatives on a church, community or circuit level, for example outreach, Bible study (currently running online Thursday evenings), the Friday Bible Study held at Wesley (1.30pm) open to anyone inside or outside of the Circuit



  • Day off : Monday
