What is the Christian Faith?

Christian life is lived in relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and in common with other Christians in the church seeking to deepen that relationship and to follow the way that Jesus taught.

For Christians God is understood and known as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

…Father… God is love, caring for creation and for every human being as God's beloved child.

…Son… God is as he has revealed himself to be in the historical person of Jesus Christ. Jesus' life, death and resurrection holds the key to knowing and loving God, and to making sense of life, before and after death.

…and Holy Spirit… God is alive, loving and active today, inspiring faith, justice and truth, sustaining the life of the world, giving spiritual gifts to the church and bearing his spiritual fruit in the world - changed lives and a transformed society.
Finding out more

If you want to wait before contacting anyone, and you'd rather find out more about Jesus online, why not visit www.rejesus.co.uk, and www.christianity.org.uk?

But because Christianity is about relationship and community, the best way to find out about faith and prayer, to raise questions and to get help, is to meet some Christians - so why don't you come along one Sunday morning, or give the Vicar a call?

What are we here for?

For a number of years our aim has been:
Making new Christians and making all Christians new.
Taking the Church into the community and bringing the community into the Church.

However - we're always open to new ideas, so if you can think of a better aim for our Parishes of St. Peters and All Saints, please add a comment using the button below. It needs to sum up what we are here for in a couple of sentences and be easy to remember...

The Vicar, Revd. Steve Clapham

Steve was born in London, and was brought up in London, Essex and Devon.

He studied Computer Science at Portsmouth Polytechnic between 1980-1984, and at the age of 19 he became interested in the Christian faith. After reading and thinking very intensively he made a prayer of commitment and gave his life to Christ.

For over twenty years Steve has worked in Information Technology as a computer programmer, systems analyst, and up to 2004 as a Project Manager.

Steve is married to Christine, and they have four children: Paul, Jennifer, Daniel and Victoria. They also have two cats.

From 1990 to 2004 they were based in Stockport, and were involved with a church plant which met in a local pub, local mission churches and two parish churches. As the family grew they became more involved, playing guitar and flute together in worship. In 1996 Steve was licensed as a Reader, and later changed direction and was accepted for Ordained Ministry.

From 2004 to 2006 Steve was curate at St. Mary’s, Nantwich before being selected as Vicar at All Saints and St. Peters in Crewe. In 2008 Steve was appointed the Chaplain to Crewe Alexandra football club.

Steve’s main hobby is wine making – so if anyone has any spare fruit available he’s always pleased to have it. He also loves science fiction, listening to music, playing guitar and playing flight simulator games on the computer, because in reality – he’s a frustrated fighter pilot!

Associate Minister, Revd. Jane Colley

I was born and grew up in the Midlands, the middle of three children. As a family, we attended a modern church centre with lots going on for teenagers, so I have very happy memories of those years. I recall that having had to memorize Psalm 8, I was struck by the immensity and wonder of God – of the God who also loves each one of us intimately, holding us in the palm of His hand. I gave my life to Him.

On leaving school, I spent a year in Germany on a Christian voluntary work scheme and then trained as a residential social worker, at the end of which I was offered a three year mission posting in Pakistan as a (very young) matron in a boarding school supported by the Church of England.

Following these challenging years, I moved to Cheshire and spent about twenty years in Residential work with emotionally damaged children.

Martyn and I married in 1996 (a second marriage for both of us), and between us we have five children and eight grandchildren.

In 1998 I undertook a short training course in teaching English as a foreign language and began a ten year association with the Elim Bible College in Nantwich as a supply teacher.

The following year Martyn and I were invited to teach O level English in Pakistan, in the school where I had previously worked. We split our time between Pakistan and England for the following eight years, eventually opening a community project which provided health care, a sewing school, a wedding hire service, beautician training and English teaching.

Our visits to Pakistan came to an abrupt end in December 2007 when the government deported us for reasons which have never been declared, but the community project has continued under local management.

In the last six years I have experienced God nudging me, challenging me and making a way where there seems to be no way! I feel hugely privileged to be able to join you once again at All Saints and St Peter’s and look forward to whatever God has in store for us.
