RENEW is a church within the Baptist Union of Great Britain and a member of the Evangelical Alliance. Our family and regular congregation are a wonderful mix of Baptists, Anglicans, Methodists and others – and we welcome all. Whoever you are, there is a place here for you.



Our Elders are responsible for the church’s spiritual oversight.

Alan Brand – Pastor
A family man with a heart for mission and discipleship, Alan was born and raised up North. Called to us in summer 2015, he, Tammy, and their children Faith, Reuben, Benjamin and Grace are flourishing in their new home and as part of our growing church family.

Peter Wells – Elder (Secretary)
Peter has been part of the church for more than a decade and has provided leadership during periods when there has been no minister. As well as preaching regularly and being part of the music group, Peter is an artist, keen birdwatcher and avid reader.  He is married to Ann, and they have a large family of children, step-children and grandchildren.
