Meet the Team

 

 
 

Here at Christian Life Church it would be impossible to do what we do without a family of volunteers. Alongside these, we have a team who commit themselves to serving CLC in full-time & part time capacities, so that together, we can make Jesus famous.

Dave Wellington   Consultant Worship Leader    Dave is married with 3 children. He is a very experienced worship leader and an internationally published songwriter. He loves to encourage congregations into deeper worship, and music teams into the excellence of their gifts and calling. When in the same vicinity as Dave, you’re guaranteed to hear some delightful humming, singing or funny sounding accents bouncing around. Oh, and possibly a dad joke or two. It happens.    #classicdave #deepjoy

Emmanuel Sule   Associate Pastor Elder   Emmanuel is our Associate Pastor. Married to Joyce, together they have two daughters and a son. Emmanuel plays a large part in our pastoral care here at CLC, and with a PHD in theology you'd think he'd be clever, but unfortunately he supports Arsenal, so maybe not.

Caroline Leake   Housekeeping   Caroline is one of the GEM’s, that makes sure that our church and offices are spotless on a weekly basis. She has worked at the church for 2 and a half years, and has attended CLC for far longer. She’s also very much involved in some aspects of the youth work here at CLC, an example being her role as Head Chef at the annual youth festival, LIMITLESS.
