Meet the team……

Pastor Jonathan Coates

Hi I am the leader at Avery Hill Christian Fellowship.
I have been married for over 30 years to Lesley and have 2 children and 3 grandchildren.
I have lived locally all my life, and while working in retail management for many years I have been very active in local church community.
My passion is for the church to be an active part of the community as well as a place where people can discover Jesus for themselves.
I pray that you will give Jesus a chance to make a difference to your life.

Andrew Unger (Children’s Worker)

Hi my name is Andrew, I am the Children’s Worker at Avery Hill Christian Fellowship. I have worked for the church since 2018 and I am really enjoying seeing how the Church comes together with the local community. This is my second role working with Children and Young People and what I love is when we can have real relationships with families that blesses them and helps them to bless others. I am married to Susan and have a young man Joel and a young lady Rachel, we have been married for over 10 years and thank God everyday for that. We want to see children and young people safe and loved and the adults around them in a supportive community with people in the Church. In my time at Avery Hill I have seen children and young people in the Church come closer to God; they teach me new things all the time.
