Meet Us

Mark Simpson

is the minister of Wellfield Church. He grew up in London, but has a cross-cultural marriage to Lyndsey, a Yorkshire girl. They have three kids. Mark became a Christian as a teenager through a church youth group.

Pete Harvey

is the curate, or assistant minister. Married to Zoe, with two children, Pete worked for many years in the Pharmaceutical industry. He was born and raised in Yemen, to British parents – the tenth Brit ever to be born there! But he speaks English pretty well.

Helen Neville

manages the debt centre for ‘Christians Against Poverty’. Together with a few other churches in Leyland, she is employed to help people struggling with debt. She and her husband Doug also head up our Sunday Club team. They have two children as well.

Our Leadership Team are responsible for most of the decision-making of the church. The team consists of Mark, Pete, Doug and Helen, Andrew Nicholson, David Cowburn and Suzanne Cowburn, our treasurer.

But the people we’d most love you to meet are not pictured above. Wellfield is not dominated by a handful of people up front; Wellfield is instead a whole Church Family. We hope that one day you might visit us on a Sunday, and then you’ll be able to see that we’re made up of men, women and children. In fact we boast people from every decade from 0 to 70, and we’d be delighted to extend beyond that!
