Christ Church Longbridge is an independent charity governed by three managing trustees. The trustees are set aside as the elders of the church to lead the church and care for it’s spiritual life.

Joshua Passenger


Josh is married to Emma and they have two young children. Josh is a chartered accountant and also acts as the treasurer of Christ Church. He loves American Football, board games and all things Star Wars.

John Walley


John is married to Celia and has two sons, Simeon and Joseph. Growing up between Swansea and Beirut, he came to Birmingham in 2000 to study at the University of Birmingham and now couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. John was part of the group that helped plant Grace Church Dell Road, who sent him to train for full time ministry at Oak Hill College in London, and took him back as their associate pastor in 2013. He’ll will be employed full time by Christ Church. John keeps fit by commuting everywhere on his bike and loves boardgames and listening to music.

Nathan Burden


Nathan is married to Kathryn and they have two young children. He’s lived in Birmingham for 6 years, having moved here for work. In this time Nathan has slowly but thoroughly learnt just how much he can trust God’s plans – after all, God knows us far better than we know ourselves. When he’s not pastoring Christ Church, Nathan is a secondary school physics teacher and loves riding anything with two wheels, growing vegetables and being outdoors.
