Leadership

Life Church Value: A Well Led Community

Churches should be led humbly by men and women with leadership gifts and an awareness of their accountability to God and role as stewards of the body whose head is Christ.

An an incorporated UK registered charity, Life Church has a board of Directors who are responsible for its affairs to deal with practical matters. All our departments, events, service teams, and small groups are led by people who are part of the church. All of this activity is overseen by our Senior Leadership Team.
