OUR MESSAGE IS JESUS
Welsh born Pastor Les and her late husband Pastor Mike pioneered a church in East London, South Africa, which they pastored for 17 years before God called them to the nations.
After 5 years of travelling the globe preaching the gospel they accepted the position of senior Pastors at Citifaith Church, Swindon, in February 2004. They saw the church through some exciting times of growth in the years that followed. Sadly Pastor Mike took ill and, after a brave fight, went home to Glory in December 2010.
Pastor Les took on Citifaith and continues to run with the vision God had shown them for the church.
Pastor Les has a passion for Swindon. She wants to see the community changed and the people reach their destiny and live a life in the freedom, purposes and fullness that God intends for them.
She is a woman of the word and unwavering faith and she has an incredible testimony of God's healing power in her life.
Pastor Les has 2 adult children and a grandson, who play a huge part in her life and serve alongside her in ministry.

THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS TOTAL FREEDOM

TO RAISE UP A STANDARD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
In the life of our city and nation.
The very nature of God is love; we love God, we love His people and we love our city.
We're bold and daring in our faith in God. Being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we don't yet see. We believe the impossible to 'see miracles happen'.
You can give without loving, but it's impossible to love without giving. We give our upmost for His highest in our time, finances and ourselves.
We're passionate about pleasing God, reaching people and effecting our city with hope only found in Jesus Christ.
'To receive honour, your have to give honour'. We give honour to everyone from anywhere because of the great potential God has placed in them.
We reflect the nature and character of God in everything we do, within church and our city.
We are called to be a city on a hill, radiating light into the darkest of places, 'our vision will speak'.
We encourage, nurture, train, equip and release ordinary people to live extraordinary lives.
We are pastors, leaders and great minds, who will envision the endless possibilities of giving more, doing more and living more for the cause of Jesus Christ.
We are here to connect and resource people & projects that otherwise would be beyond the ability of one local church.
