Who’s who

Ministry Team

Ed Pennington


Ed became a Christian as a teenager, and has never looked back. After university, he worked as a geologist for a few years before training to be a Church minister. He then worked in churches in Northampton and Fulwood, before starting at Christ Church Endcliffe. He is married to Helen, and they have three children, Emma, Jonathan and Sophie.

Rob Bridgewater

Associate Minister

Rob is married to Caroline and they have three daughters, Lottie, Rosie and Lucy; Rob began his life with Jesus when he was a student in Sheffield. Until he left to train as a minister in London, he worked with an advisory firm to assist corporate pension funds. Following training, he enjoyed three years working for a church in Chapeltown before moving to Christ Church Endcliffe. He is a great cycling fan – all his daughters watched the Tour De France before they could walk.

Sarah Bradley

Youth & Children’s Minister

Sarah grew up in Sheffield, but has lived in Birmingham, Liverpool and London before returning to her roots. When she’s not in the office Sarah enjoys being a mum to her own children, watching 90’s US sitcoms and dancing round the kitchen. She became a Christian as a child and has a passion to encourage children to love and follow the Lord Jesus.

Dan Allen

Assistant Youth and Children’s worker

Dan is a guitar-playing, football-loving Lutonian, who started life up north as a student in 2017. It was then that he started to go to Christ Church Fulwood where he became a Christian one year later. After university, Dan was a Ministry Trainee at Fulwood for 2 years where he grew in his love for teaching God’s word. He now hopes to do all he can to share the love of Jesus at Endcliffe.

Rhys Munden


Rhys is originally from Leeds, but came to Sheffield to study maths. It was here through the faithful witness of his housmates and other members of the Christian Union that he himself came to faith. After graduating he stayed on for even more maths to study a PhD, which was all about modelling animal movements. He is well known for watching many films, playing pool and having a beard.

Rebecca Rae

Church Administrator

Rebecca is from Kansas City, Missouri (there’s no place like home!) and has lived in the UK for the past 23 years. She is married to Stephen, and they have two teenage children, Georgia and Daniel. She became a Christian as a child and has a wide-range of interests: archaeology, reading and alpacas!
