"I enjoy music, singing, reading, and cooking for my family on the weekends. I work full-time and travel extensively with my job, but God's grace enables me to have a rich and balanced spiritual, family and work life. Phillipians 4:13!"


Deacon Peter Bolton

I have attended Elim Nantwich since I came to Christ in 1990, apart from a short period at St. Chad’s, Wybunbury, where I became their Parish Evangelist after a three year training course.  I served NEC as its first Church Secretary and Deacon in the early 1990’s, and was vice chair, later chair, of the Building Committee which oversaw the establishment of New Life Church in Crewe.  I have led House Groups for more than twenty years, and currently assist with one of our groups in Crewe.  In particular, I have a heart for Men’s Ministry, and, with some assistance, lead our own Men’s Fellowship.  I married Pam in 1958, have three adult children and six grandchildren.  I finally retired from secular work in 2014, after fifty nine years in industry and having survived three redundancies.  Redundancy gave me opportunities to change career, and I have worked in defence electronics, medical x-ray, IT, project management, factory management, general management and specialist admin roles, as well as serving in the Royal Air Force.  The second redundancy taught me that God was in control of my life, and so I came to Christ, and have worked for Him ever since.  A guiding text for me has always been Philippian’s 3:13-14, and it is my intention to serve for as long as it is considered I have something to contribute.


Deacon Naomi Munkley

Naomi is married to Stuart, and is mother of, Rachael.  Together, they have been members Nantwich Elim Church for over 2 years. Naomi is involved in teaching Sunday School, and her family open their home each week to host a youth prayer meeting.

Naomi comes from a strong christian heritage, her father was a Pentecostal Evangelist that God used in the gifts of healing and miracles. "He had a great love for souls and for missions. He taught me the Word of God and how to stand on It."
"I have a heart to see Christians in our church grow strong in the Lord, and live in victory and power according to His Word!"
