Pastor (Lead Elder)
Andrew Allinson is our Pastor. He is humbled to be a Follower of Jesus; blessed to be a husband of one amazing wife; slightly stunned to be a father of five dearly loved children; privileged to be a Pastor of God’s church family; and ‘enlightened’ to know the delight of a good cup of coffee. Andrew remembers being told in Sunday School that the answer was always Jesus. Now he realises that the Gospel, as it displays Jesus, is always the answer; not simplistically but profoundly!
