Leadership

IMG_0859Rev Ashley Cooper  | 
Senior Pastor
Ashley is the Senior Leader at Swan Bank. He joined the staff in September 2007. He and his wife, Moira, have two children, Joel and Holly. Ashley loves God, people, and his family. He has an addiction to coffee and Port Vale FC. (The staff is working to get him in recovery on both counts.)

 

 

 

IMG_0861Amy Wyatt  |  Assistant Pastor
Amy has been with the church staff since 2000. She and her husband, Steve, have a beautiful (very intelligent) four year old daughter named Izzie. Amy loves people. (She is the extreme extrovert of the staff.) If you want to get on her good side talk positively about God, aerobics, or give her Galaxy Ripples.

 

 

 

IMG_0881Ali Johnson  |  Youth Pastor
Ali joined the team in 2010 and works with young people of high school age and up. Since joining us he has become established as the office techy and tea boy. He loves all things social media, so is invovled in a number of online projects, and is just as likely to tweet you as talk to you.

 

 

 

 

IMG_0863Glynis Cooper  |  Church Administrator
Glynis has many administrative responsibilities, not the least of which is managing the church office, overseeing the finances, and keeping Ashley’s calendar. She was a corporate manager prior to joining the Swan Bank team. Glynis is a warm and caring person, who we are relatively certain would marry Harrison Ford should he become available.

IMG_0874Chris Wright   |  Intern
Chris started coming to Swan Bank when he was just a baby, and has been involved in the life of the church ever since. Chris started the Internship in September 2013, running a Lighthouse Club on a Thursday night and various children and youth events throughout the year, but only when he’s not distracting Tom, Ali and Jonah from their daily duties!

Tom has been coming to Swan Bank ever since he left his mother’s womb and has joined the staff team as an intern during his gap year before heading off to uni. Tom heads up our social media and helps lead some of the youth meetings during the week, as well as keeping an eye on Ali and Chris, making sure at least some work gets done.
