Sedbergh Christian Centre
Background & Leadership
Sedbergh Christian Centre was born out of the vision of the Lakes Christian Centre in Windemere. (L C C itself was formed in 1924 in the Langdale Valley. The work moved to Ambleside in the early 80’s, and onto Windermere in the mid-90’s.) At the beginning of the 21st Century, a few families moved through to Sedbergh and set up an independent work.
However, we do not consider ourselves to be more than a “One Talent Church.” On a good day we might get 20 people coming through to a meeting, but we refuse to bury what God has given us & seek to work, with all the strength His grace provides, to effectively preach the reality of Christ to a lost & dying world - a world that doesn’t yet realise their need of The Saviour.
Deacons & Elders
Tim Ingle is a husband to Cathy, father to Samuel & Rachel, a web page designer & a brilliant Deacon. A number of times folk from other churches have asked if they could steal Tim away. He is conscientious, a man of integrity with a generous heart. We are privileged to have him & his family on the team that ministers Gods grace into our community.
David Hendrickse is a husband to Claire, father to Johanna, Rachel, Rebekah and David junior. He is a senior carer (working with children, in a local children’s home, that have been exploited & moved by social services away from harmful influences & circumstances) & is also the Elder/Pastor leading the work at Sedbergh Christian Centre. His heart is always to meet people where they are at and to prayerfully support them as God turns their lives around.
