Transforming communities with the love of God

Senior Leadership Team

One deep conviction we have here is that the reason for leadership in a local church is to uphold and encourage the ministry of the people – not the other way round. Everyone should be involved in a full-time ministry of sorts – at home, at work, in the community – and it is the leaders’ job to invest in, support, encourage and inspire people to grow into who God made them.

Our leadership  structure is pretty simple – we have a Senior Leadership Team that prayerfully and diligently oversees the vision, values and direction of Wellspring Church, and the Directors who carry legal responsibility for all we do, serving as Company Directors and Charity Trustees.

His inspiring ministry leading both the Community Kids and Community Youth teams brings truth to life in the hearts and minds of all those under 18.

Apostolic Council

We believe that all leaders need to be led, and every local church should seek out and be open to ‘apostolic’ ministries. What does this mean? Well, it’s about asking for experienced, gifted leaders to ‘say what they see’ and speak into the lives of our Senior Leadership Team and the decisions they make.

So who is on our Apostolic Council?

  • ApostolicJohnDawn

    John and Dawn Andrews have years of experience in full-time Christian leadership, until 2012 they were leading The Hub, a dynamic mission-minded church in Rotherham. 

    John lectures at both undergraduate and graduate level at Mattersey Hall College and Graduate School, speaks regularly around the UK and in various parts of the world. With a PhD in Pentecostal theology and a wide range of experience, John has written nine books (his latest being First Day). Dawn is a strong and gifted leader, drawing on her own studies and years of senior church leadership experience. They have three children, Elaina, Simeon and Beth-Anne.

  • ApostolicPeterMariette

    Peter and Mariette Stott lead Portsdown Community Church, which was planted into Havant in 1982. The church's core DNA values include those of worship, intercession and the prophetic. They both have mature and strategic gifts of prophecy; God uses them very often to speak clearly and incisively into personal and local church contexts. We have enjoyed the fruits of this ministry at Wellspring Church, with a very specific word of prophecy in 2003 about wells and springs, a vision that was remarkably fulfilled in the building of The Wellspring seven years later.

    As longstanding friends of ours, we are grateful for Peter and Mariette’s support and input as members of our Apostolic Council.
