Pastor Alison Bates
Bill and Ali became pastors of what was 'New Life Church' in 1989 and in 2002 led the church into the C3 movement. Since Bill's death in 2004, Ali has continued to lead the church with the support of the great people in C3 Cheltenham. In 2010 a long standing dream was fulfilled as she led the church into its own building. She loves studying the word, preaching and teaching. There isn’t much in church life she hasn’t done over the years! Ali has 2 grown up children, is a perpetual student, and loves reading, all sorts of music and living in Cheltenham.
