Matt and Lucy Rowley   Revd Matthew Robinson
Matt - I am the Lead Evangelist for Hope for Blackpool married to Lucy and we have three children Emily, Isaac and Daniel.  I’m originally from Stoke and I’m a Stoke City fan for my sins!  I like eating curries and am passionate about my faith and sharing it with others.

Lucy – I love Disney and going to the zoo.  I work in a vet’s surgery and at the church, I love working with the kids and the ladies.
  I am the Curate (trainee Vicar) in The Trinity Parish. I'm married to Sarah and we have a baby boy called Elisha (named after the great prophet). I love Jesus and telling people about him, cooking (and eating!), long walks and reading and I am responsible for leading the youth events at Hope Community Church along with Emily.

I am married to Pedro who currently studying at the Nazarene Theological College. We have a one-year-old daughter called Maria. Her main hobbies include eating fruit and saying “no”.

I am a University of Sheffield graduate in Biblical Studies and soon will have completed a PGCE in Religious Education. Previously, I served in Brazil with YWAM where I worked with an indigenous community. And then in Nepal, where I worked with an organisation that included a church, Bible college, media projects and a home for children.

We are both really excited to be coming to the Grange Park community and see what God has in store for Blackpool. I am particularly passionate about making the Bible accessible through discipleship and seeing people of all ages come to faith. 
Pedro is also passionate about helping people to come to know Jesus in a life changing way, and is also excited about being part of the Centre of Mission.

  I support Matt with all the paperwork for Hope for Blackpool and, in my free time, I enjoy music, singing and needlework and guinea pigs!  I am married to David and we have two grown up children called Andrew and Becky.   I recently stopped working as a teacher and am enjoying working as part of the Hope for Blackpool team.
