Pastor Roy Hickson

Roy has been a Christian since 1993 and, after graduating from Bible College in 2002, was involved in church planting in Manchester and Newcastle.

In 2006 he returned to Alford and joined Alford Community Church as a kitchen assistant. He soon progressed onto being a Community Development worker, working particularly with youth and the elderly. Under the then pastor Mark Rowe, Roy became Associate Pastor.

In August 2013, Mark Rowe left to pursue his life’s calling and was succeeded by Roy.

This same year, Roy also married his wife, Ruth.

Roy has been ordained into the Order of St Leonard.

Roy is passionate about seeing God’s kingdom growing here in Alford and to seeing Alford Community Church blessing all sections of the town community.
