“We have a shared passion for things of the kingdom”

Stuart & Lynley Allan

Senior Pastors

We have been married for 29 years and have one gorgeous daughter. Having had our lives and marriage transformed by the Father’s love we carry a huge heart to see people healed and restored to the Father’s embrace.

Over the past 20 years we have been in various forms of ministry including nine awesome years immersed in revival at Catch The Fire Toronto under John and Carol Arnott. What a privilege!

The Allan trio love to go camping, playing at the beach and travelling the world. Our favourite times are hanging out with friends, drinking great coffee and sharing quality food.

Matt & Cherie Trent

Lead Team, Worship & Prayer Ministry

We love hanging out in the presence of God, and seeing Him change lives as He touches people. Our heart is to see a well of God’s presence established in our city - that all may come and drink and encounter His love for themselves.

As a gifted dreamer and dream interpreter, Cherie is establishing Streams Ministries in NZ and is on mission to equip people to hear the voice of God through their dreams. Matt loves ministering in the marketplace, and through music - changing the atmosphere through leadership & worship.

Married 20 years with 3 boys, we've lived, ministered and worked in England, Australia and NZ as we've sought to follow God's call - it's an exciting ride as children of the King!

Russell & Julie Ballantyne

Lead Team, Pastoral Care & Connect Groups

We have been in some form of Pastoral ministry since we first started dating, running Youth groups and organising youth camps then moving on to pastor churches for 18 years. 2017 sees us celebrating being married for 40 years, having had 5 great children and currently 12 precious grandchildren.

We love to go for long walks, gardening, spending time with the grandies (and their parents, of course) and friends and getting out and about in our little red sports car!

We had the privilege of attending the three week School of Ministry at Catch the Fire Toronto in January 2017 and this allowed us to be immersed in the Father’s love to a deeper level. We know it is only as the truth of the Father’s love for us is revealed, that healing and restoration becomes a reality in our lives and we can live in the freedom and purpose we were created for.

Jordan & Delwyn Fejos

Youth & Young Adults

We have been married for three years and we love Jesus. We have a heart for young people, worship and the presence of God. We have been involved with youth groups and young adults ministries for almost ten years and both carry a strong vision for youth and young people to encounter the love and presence of God. It is our heart to get alongside young people and see them walk in their true identity as sons and daughters of God.

Katherine & Paul Claydon

Kids Ministry

We have been married for 10 years and have 3 gorgeous children. We live on the Hibiscus Coast and love getting out to explore and spend time at the beach with friends and family.

We have a real heart for children and have been involved in children’s ministry for many years. We love seeing children grow in their relationships with the Father and the knowledge that they are so loved. We know we have been called to serve and love that we can walk alongside these children on their journey with the Lord.
