Everyday Church is led by men and women of all ages and backgrounds, directed by a Central Leadership Team.

Because we are convinced that God uses very ordinary people to do extraordinary things, we believe that the task of senior leaders is to serve those they lead, bringing the best out of all the wonderful men and women that God entrusts to us. Each of our venues also has its own local team of Elders and Ministry Leaders.  Everyday Church as a whole is led by the Central Leadership Team and by a team of Ministry Directors, who oversee the various aspects of our church life across London and throughout the world.

The Central Leadership Team

Phil Moore | Lead Pastor 

Central Elder


Phil is married to Ruth, a local GP, and they have four children. After reading History at Cambridge University, he worked as a missionary in Paris, then worked for six years for the US consumer-goods company Procter & Gamble. He moved to London at the start of 2010 to start leading one of the churches which went on to found Everyday Church. Phil is the author of the "Straight to the Heart" series of devotional commentaries and of the book "Gagging Jesus" - see www.philmoorebooks.com. He loves to spend his free time on family, friends, films, food and football!


Akhtar Shah Central Ministry Director, Central Elder



Akhtar leads the Kingston venue of Everyday Church and leads the church’s team of Ministry Directors. He is married to Marta, who teaches Art at secondary school. They have two young children, Joel and Anastazja. Much of Akhtar's wider family is Muslim and Marta is from Poland, so they like to claim that their children reflect the diversity of 21st-century London. Akhtar has worked for many years as a social worker and he also leads Everyday Difference, the social action wing of the church.

Karen Moore Central Operations Director

Karen worked for many years as Managing Director in an international bank, heading up global and regional teams across multiple businesses and disciplines. She is married to Tom and they love spending time with their daughter.
