Church Leaders

Elders

Mark Webb

Having completed a period of training with the church, Mark began serving as Pastor of the church in 2013. Mark attends Bath Street with his wife Katie and their two daughters: Tilly and Edith.

Mark's love of sport and music revolves around cricket, football, baseball and Bob Dylan! Mark and Katie live close to the church, with Katie also working locally at the Acorn's Children's Hospice.

Mark has a heart for the church’s vision of devotion to prayer, learning, fellowship, worship and mission.

His wife is Sue and they have five children and five grandchildren. Two of their children live in Walsall and are members of the church, the other three children have married and moved away, one now in Duluth, North America, one in Wales and one in Nottingham. Alan is a retired engineer, and he and Sue are now leading the Wednesday Oasis Group. Sue is involved with the 50+ Forum in Blakenall and the local stroke group too. She is also part of the befriending service for shut-ins.

Steve has many hobbies including golf and fishing, and was the goalkeeper of the church football team in the past. Now he follows Walsall or Wolves depending upon who is doing the best!
