David Walters team

Elder – David Walters

My wife Susan and I moved to England from Wales many years ago and during that time I pastored several churches. We have 3 children, who are now grown-ups themselves, and we love our family very much. My heart is to love and serve people however I also enjoy photography in my spare time, and you will often catch me with my camera.


Management Team

Alongside a senior leadership team are a group of people, who help to manage the church. This group all help the church to function in very practical ways.

Jean Nicholson teamJean Nicholson has been a much-loved member of the church for many years.  She is known throughout the community and the church for the way that she loves and cares for people. After years of visiting and encouraging anybody who needed it, Jean was officially put in charge of visiting those who aren’t able to make it to church.

Fred Challinor team

Fred Challinor, with his wife Mavis, have been faithful members of the church for many years. Fred is very practically gifted and, amongst other things, is a key part of the Tuesday Venue meeting.  He is a faithful man of God, but watch out, he does also have a more mischievous side. 

Marianne Palin team

Marianne Palin, known to her friends as Maz, has been on the church management team since 2016.  She is married to David, and together they form a team with great organisational skills.  They are involved in many aspects of church ministry including heading up the catering team. Marianne also ensures that the church has all the right practices in place so that we can be confident that the church is a safe place for all to come.


We would love to welcome you to our church family. So possibly plan a visit?
