Our Team

Leadership Team

Matt and Lou MacDiarmid



Matt is Hope’s lead elder. He is passionate about reaching the last, the least and the lost with God’s message of hope through Jesus. Lou works for a charity supporting local families in crisis and loves to get alongside those who are struggling and has a real heart for new mums. Together, they love watching TV in their PJs and they have two wonderful children.

Mike and Sue Pearce



Mike is passionate about worship and seeing the gifts of the Holy Spirit released in people. He leads the worship team and Making Room for the Holy Spirit meetings. Sue runs the administrative side of the church and likes nothing better than being surrounded by a list and a spreadsheet. Together Mike & Sue head up social action and mission at Hope, and run a support group for their friends and mission partners serving in Bolivia. They have two lovely lively children, Rebekah and Luke.

Phill and Mel Beynon



Phill is one of Hope’s elders and worship leaders, who has a natural gift of blending praise through worship, with moving in the prophetic gifts of the spirit. For a quiet chap, we can definitely hear him on the drums! Mel has a heart to counsel and support those who are struggling and teaches in one of our Sunday school groups. They have two lovely children Joseph and Molly and are known to be regularly dogsitting someone’s pup!

Kathy and Nic Allen



Kathy is one of our Elders at Hope and has a passion for connecting people with each other and with God.  Nic heads up our tech team and  works hard to ensure our physical and online services are a success.  They enjoy hospitality and often have a house full. Together they have two lovely girls and a dog.  They can often be found playing board games, or chilling out with the TV.

Maggie Gill


Maggie comes from the West Midlands – NOT a Brummie, but spot the accent!! She loves having dinner with friends and enjoys a thriller or a good walk through the fabulous Leicestershire countryside, possibly ending at the pub!!.

Her heart is still partly in Asia where she lived and worked with drug addicts for over 16 years, but wherever she is, her passion is seeing people get free and become who they were meant to be. So, hanging out on the streets, preaching and teaching, and helping folk pray through stuff are some her favourite Kingdom adventures!!
