staff team & others

We’re really clear at Emmanuel that it’s the whole church who are the ministers of Emmanuel!  But our staff oversee the day-to-day organisation of our church life, and have a particular role in equipping and mobilising all of us.

Richard Hopkins
Senior Minister

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!

 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.
