Who Are We?

Christ Church is made up of more than a hundred people from a wide range of ages, backgrounds and nationalities.


David Walker is the vicar of Christ Church. Dave moved to Christ Church in January 2011, before which he was curate at All Hallows Cheadle near Stockport. Dave trained at Oak Hill Theological College where he is now a part-time lecturer. Previously he studied zoology, and this has helped him appreciate God's wonderful creation, especially dragonflies. He also likes bikes. Dave and Sarah were married at Christ Church 20 years ago, after which they spent a year serving in mission work in Bolivia, and Sarah continues to actively share in ministry with Dave. Together Dave & Sarah have three growing children.


Our churchwardens are Mike Barkway and Will Hawkes, and church secretary Christine Cooper is also the deputy churchwarden. Ronnie Mathews is the church treasurer. Sarah Afuwape is responsible for safeguarding. Maggie Thorp leads the ministry to children & young people. Belinda & Jodie Willett are involved with the administration of the church hall. Tony Afuwape, Kelly Dimbga and Nakato Kiwana are also PCC members.
