We believe the Bible teaches that God raises up and appoints elders to lead the local church. At Kings we currently have two elders Angus Wightman and Steve Laker, who serve as leaders of our church family. We believe God will raise up others to join with them in the fullness of time. Kings church is served and supported by the Cumbria Plus team, which is led by Roger Bye and is part of the apostolic team led by Jeremy Simpkins. Jeremy’s team serves ChristCentral Churches (part of Newfrontiers) across the UK as well as serving churches in a number of other nations.
We are convinced biblically, that leadership is plural and it’s our desire and aim to prayerfully identify, train and raise up leaders to serve in a variety of ways in the life of Kings Church and the wider community. Angus and Steve are well supported by a leadership team comprised of both men and women who serve in a variety of ways; children and youth work, small groups, community involvement, pastoral care and supporting work overseas.
