Welcome! We are Andy and Gina Elmes, the Senior Pastors of Family Church. Since the launch of our very first service in 1997, we have seen Family Church grow into the thriving multi-congregational church it is today with congregations across the south-coast, the Philippines and an online congregation. We have five incredible children; Olivia, Ethan, Gaby, Sophie and Christina and together we are passionate in our pursuit of sharing the Word of God.
As a Church we welcome people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures to join our church family. We are passionate about reaching people where they are, helping people grow into all God has called them to be, as well as empowering people to reach others and help them grow.
We would love for you to stop by and join us at one of our congregations. Take a moment to look around our website to find out more about each of our congregations and how you can get involved with Family Church throughout the week.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Hello! We are Steuart & Carla Payne, and we serve as Executive Pastors of Family Church. We work with our Congregational Pastors, senior staff and leaders in outworking the mission of the church. We are passionate about reaching our communities with the good news of Jesus, seeing people grow in their relationship with God, and empowering them to live out the purpose of God for their lives.
We have served alongside Pastors Andy & Gina since they pioneered the church, and – with our three children – we love being part of this Christian family that loves God and loves people. We celebrate all that God has done in the past and look forward to everything that God has planned for Family Church in the future.
We would love to meet you and hope to see you at Family Church soon!
We are a generous people who serve a generous God.
