Ridgeway Church Chingford

A church serving Chingford and beyond

Leadership and Staff

We are an independently governed Church, not responsible to any denominational head office. We have elders, deacons and wider leadership. The elders and their wives are currently:

David & Kirsten Parker

Dave and Kirsten
David and Kirsten came from New Zealand to Ridgeway in March 2006 to take up the position of pastors. They had been serving in a leadership role in a local Church for 13 years in Rotorua and in that time saw the church grow from around 60 to over 500 people. Prior to that David and Kirsten were living and working in Norfolk. They have two boys, Benjamin and Dominic. 

Bill and Rosalie Bennett
Bill and Rosalie are faithful servants at Ridgeway and have been for many years, serving as deacons before coming on the Eldership team. The first thing noticeable about this couple is their deep love for Jesus, which radiates from them. They love God's word by outliving it.

Geoff and Doreen Mitchell
