Staff


Fairfields is a small, cozy, friendly church with a small friendly staff.

Our pastor, John C. Wright, is pastor of the Northumberland Charge, which consists of two United Methodist churches, Fairfields in Burgess, and Afton in Ophelia. On Sundays he preaches at Fairfields at 9:30 am and at Afton at 11:00 a.m.

Barbara Hays, our Music Director, also serves at Afton as accompanist. At Fairfields, she is our choir director and pianist. She frequently organizes special musical events for us including a Christmas cantata in December.

The office for the Northumberland Charge is in a former residence next door to Fairfields (there’s an aerial view of the campus at the bottom of this page on the right). The pastor is there Mondays through Thursdays except when he is out on appointments or making calls.

On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 pm the office is staffed by our part-time secretary, Margaret Radcliffe.

Additionally, several of our members play significant roles in volunteer positions. Some of these are noted in Our People.

We invite you to come by and meet us. Thanks for visiting our website!
