Ministry Amongst Britain’s Poorest
Anthony & Elaine Fisher serve at Speke Baptist Church on a housing estate in Liverpool, while Ian & Rachel Williamson are reaching Middlesbrough as they serve at New Life Church. We got them together to have a conversation about some of the unique pressures of ministry in hard places.
Anthony is Co-Pastor at Speke Baptist Church, which is a council estate ministry. He previously worked in banking and teaching. He is married to Elaine and they have four teenage children.
Elaine serves with her husband Anthony at Speke Baptist Church, Liverpool. They have four teenage children and a Jack Russell dog which she enjoys walking. Elaine enjoys swimming, jigsaws and meeting up with the women of her church.
Rachel is a former social work manager for Redcar and Cleveland Social Services, but now home educates her youngest daughter and oversees the women’s ministry at New Life Church Middlesbrough.
