Our Team

Meet the staff

There are lots of people who give of their time and gifts to enable the church to run. We haven't listed them all but have added our employed staff who are useful points of contact.

Daniel Sibthorpe

Church Pastor

Daniel took on the leadership of Living Waters in November 2006 having left his job as a furniture maker. He is married to Tanya and has two adult children, Campbell and Ella. He loves cycling and restoring objects to their former glory. He is passionate about God and helping others connect to Him and others around them.

Tanya Sibthorpe

Church Pastor

Tanya leads the church with Daniel and is committed to seeing people become free to be who they were designed to be. She was born and raised in Australia but God called her to the UK with Daniel. She loves to host a good party and having a dance.

Clare Ackrill

Clare is married to Dave and they have two daughters, Rebecca and Ellie, and a cute dog called Toby.

Clare helps everything run efficiently and works from the church office two days a week (normally Monday and Tuesday).

Joy Mears

With a wealth of experience in teaching and working with children, Joy works as our Youth and Children's Co-ordinator and leads the work with our young people along with the rest of the True Colours Core Team.

She is married to Ben with two daughters and loves creating beautiful crafts and being with her family.


As a UK Charity, we also have an amazing group of trustees.

We love Living Waters because...

I like getting to make crafts in True Colours
