The Abundant Life Church is a registered charity (No 1084613) and is overseen by Elders assisted by Deacons.


The Pastoral leadership is headed up by Bob & Margaret Bennison with a team of helpers.

We also have accountability to Apostolic oversite, both in the UK and overseas.


Bob & Margaret have been serving Christ for three decades and have been involved in various forms of leadership for more than twenty five of those years, becoming Assistant Pastors of the 'East Lancashire Christian Community' before becoming Pastors at 'Abundant Life Church' when it was estblished in 1997. 


We have a mature group of people within the church who are well able to help others through situations and to help them grow and then move on to help others in turn.


Our church does not believe in the 'one man band' where the 'minister' does it all, but we see our church moving closer to the 'New Testament' type of church found in Acts 2:42-47.

"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship and breaking of bread and prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and giving to any that were in need. Every day they continued to meet together and broke bread together in their homes with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number".


We are a 'Covenanted Community' of believers who can all be involved in 'ministry', but with a clearly defined leadership structure as given by God and seen in the New Testament.
