Staff and Leadership

Please find below an introduction to our church leaders and staff members.  We run our church using a core team of pastors, supported by a leadership team and a wider group of leaders for different specific areas of church activity.

PeterAndLindaSenior Pastor: Peter Balls

Peter has been leading the church with support from his wife Linda since 1999. In this time, the church has evolved to become much more purpose focused. We are building a strong family of believers, but we all realise that it is not about us, it is all about Jesus.

ChrisAndDebraPastor: Chris Jackson

Chris is married to Debra and helps to pastor the church at Trent Road. He works with Peter and Steve to build links between the church and the community. He has also been the worship pastor for over 15 years, developing the music and a/v team that serves the church.


Associate Pastors: Steve & Kathe Hook

Steve and Kathe joined CCC when they moved to Chelmsford in 1991. As Pastors for Overseas Mission they seek to build on our existing international links and continue to look to develop links elsewhere. They have pioneered the church links with Smile International.
