About Us

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.
