Elders

Paul Levy - Chris Roberts - Chris Cradock - Chuck Phillips - Graham Weeks - Paul Meiners - Andrew Rae - Peter Lofthouse - Adrian Little - Jono Wilcox - John Silva

IPC Ealing is an Elder-led congregation. Elders are charged in the Bible to prepare Godís people for works of service so that the body of Christ might be built up (Ephesians 4:12). The Bibleís qualifications for Elders are found in 1 Timothy 3:1-11 and Titus 1:5-9. The duties of Elders are found in many scriptural passages: Acts 20:28, Hebrews 13:17, 1 Peter 5:1-5. All of our Elders teach in a variety of ways and shepherd Godís people. As Elders, we meet twice a month - once to discuss the work of the church and another time to pray for the congregation and for each other. If there are specific things that you would like us to pray for as Elders, please do be in touch and let one of the Elders know.
