At Kingsgate we want to build church the way they did it in the Bible. In the New Testament there were two types of leadership within the church.
First, there were elders (also called pastors or overseers) – who took the ultimate responsibility for leading, teaching, caring for and protecting the church. Second, there were deacons - who worked alongside the elders to help them, by running and coordinating various aspects of church life.
You can read about this in the Bible:
- Acts 20:28
- 1 Peter 5:2
- Hebrews 13:17.
However, at present we are still working towards the formation of teams and so currently have a leadership team that is providing the spiritual and practical leadership for the church whilst elders and deacons are trained and given space to emerge.
Our leadership team is currently made up of:
Kingsgate is also a registered charity and as such has a team of trustees who oversee the legal, employment and policy side of the church life.
