God called Mark and Claire to church leadership in Basildon in 2001. Their desire is to build a church that is full of love and the power of God, a place where people can discover Jesus and serve Him and the community in which they live.
Paul felt a calling on his life from around 15 years old. After school he spent 2 years studying part-time at Christian Life College in London. He currently runs 2 businesses while helping to build the Church at Swan Mead, with particular responsibility for technology (PA, stage lights etc.), as well as preaching and running the men’s teaching group.
