leadership team

Emmanuel Church is led by the Leadership Team, which is responsible for the doctrinal integrity, policy and strategy of the Church – overseeing the church’s pastoral and spiritual work.  Together with the Finance & Property Group and the Leadership Team of our church plant, Christ Church Wollaton, they make up the Managing Trustees of the charity.

The Leadership Team are:

Alex Slowey

Alex is married to Heather and they have two young boys aged 11 and 9 and a 3 year old girl.  When not working as an Industrial Pharmacist, he loves music and playing with power tools! He has a growing collection of dust on top of his growing collection of books.

Ed Bowerman

Ed spent his childhood in Cambridgeshire playing football, tennis and singing along badly to all sorts of music. He doesn’t really know what he wants to do when he grows up but in the mean time he goes to work at an aerospace company, is married to Anna and has three children who enjoy football and tennis and telling him not to sing. He still waits for the phone call from Liverpool FC.

Rich Adam

Rich studied Maths at university and was briefly a teacher before becoming Youth Pastor at a church in Warwick. He joined the staff team at Emmanuel at the beginning of 2015. He is married to Gemma, and they have two children, Joshua and Lydia. Rich is passionate about teaching the Bible and also enjoys reading history and politics.

Richard Hopkins

Richard became Senior Minister at Emmanuel in 2016, having spent 10 years as Anglican vicar of Sileby, Cossington & Seagrave in Leicestershire. Before full-time Christian work, he was a geography teacher in a secondary school. He was born and brought up in Cambridge and attended University at Nottingham where he met Rosie, his wife. They have 2 sons and 2 labrador dogs. Richard is also chairman of the Midlands Gospel Partnership. He is a fiercely over-competitive board game player – you have been warned!
