Pastor Nick and Lesley Whipps

Nick and Lesley arrived here in Norwich in June 2016. Prior to coming here they took responsibility for leading the Mosborough Elim Church on the south side of Sheffield.

They both originally come from Chelmsford where they were married in 1995 and have three adult children, Matt, Rachel and Josh who are situated in Essex, Dubai and East London respectively. Nick came to know Jesus personally at the age of 7, yet the experience of God became more profound with an encounter from the Holy Spirit when he was 15.  Nick worked for the police in a civilian capacity in London, Essex and Cheshire.  

Lesley first came to know Jesus powerfully when she was 27 after a painful marriage breakdown and divorce. She has discovered a profound relationship with God that has enabled her to support and uphold others.  Lesley has taken on a wide variety of different jobs at a handful of different retailers, but is back working in a familiar role as a teaching assistant in a local school.
