Meet the Leadership Team

Pete and Nessie Howard (see picture above)

Pete became Pastor of Alsager Community Church in July 2013 after nearly 20 years in  Christian Work including involvement in Church Planting (New Churches) and for the majority of the time, Youth and Children's Work.

Nessie is a local girl to Alsager having lived in the town and attended school here right up to the age of 18. She was actually sent to Bible College from Alsager Community Church and it was there that she and Pete met. Nessie is our Church Manager responsible for keeping and overview over our church organisation as a whole, particularly in reference to policies, safeguarding and ethos., As well as that, is involved in a range of activities including pastoral care, children's work and the Foodbank.



Laura Smith

Laura is one of our Associate Pastors, and works part time on Saff for the church. She is currently undergoing the Assemblies of God Minister-in-Training programme.

The rest of the time, she works as a Microbiology Technician (in other words, she is a very clever person!). She is married to Tony and they have a very cute dog called Nellie!

She is also a jump-straight-in type of person and was heavily involved in the church even before coming on staff, preaching in the church and playing drums in our worship band. She also became part of our Leadership team, where she obviously still serves. Since beginning to work for us as Associate Pastor, her role has continued to develop even further. We now don't quite know what we would do without her!

She is also a part of the HOPE UGANDA team, which is a mission we support.


Peter and Janice Bird

Peter and Janice came to our church after they had retired and transitioned the leadership of Revive Church, New Mills in Derbyshire, where they had led the church as the Pastors. During that time, the church grew, trained leaders and planted three churches.

As soon as they arrived in the church they began to make a huge difference, connecting, encouraging, gaining respect and being a blessing just by being there! We are so excited that we have been able to bring them onto the Leadership Team as Associate Pastors of the church.


Wendy Walker

Wendy is our Prayer Champion, a role which involves leading our weekly prayer meetings, arranging special prayer events and circulating prayer requests among the church people as they arise. Prayer is her passion and she had led training in prayer over the years, using material from 24/7 Prayer and other resources.

In addition, Wendy is one of our Life Group leaders and so is involved in pastoral care within the church. inviting her onto the Leadership Team was simply an official recognition of the ministry she was already blessing the church with.

Wendy works as Office Manager for a plastics and polymers company and previously worked in admin and similar capacity within the NHS. She is married to Rob and has two grown-up children.



In addition the team is supported by 5 additional trustees, responsible for legal, governance, etc.
