LEAD PASTORS

Roy & Lydia Todd are the pioneers and lead pastors of the Junction Church in Loughborough, Leicester & Nottingham. Ps Roy was born in Belfast but moved to England when he was 19 to study theology at uni. Since then, he has developed a much sought after ministry which is highly regarded by many churches. One of his other great loves in life is music. He's an accomplished pianist whose music has gone all over the world, some of which has been used on film & TV. Ps Lydia was born near Leeds and studied theology at uni too. People love her brilliant way of inspiring them to face the challenges and opportunities of everyday life with faith and hope. Pastors Roy & Lydia care deeply for the Junction Church community, praying and believing for God's best for the people they pastor. They are also raising up a new generation of leaders who are actively involved in the life of the church. On a wider front, they are the area leaders for the Central East Assemblies of God - which covers churches across the East Midlands. As well as this, they travel and speak at events around the UK, the USA and across Europe. Pastors Roy & Lydia are proud parents to a very beautiful daughter called Sophia Hope.
