Who’s Who

Walton Evangelical Church has an Interim Pastor, Chris Kelly, a Leadership Team of Elders and Deacons, a Church Administrator and a committed group of team leaders.


Chris & Caroline Kelly

Christopher grew up in the swinging sixties, in a large family in a little Somerset village. The days were filled with sport, music, Youth Clubs, going to the local Church and generally getting up to mischief. In his mid-teens, and as his family was going through major upheaval, Chris started going to several churches looking for forgiveness and peace with God. After a long struggle he finally surrendered his life to Jesus Christ and had a dramatic conversion experience. This produced a desire to know God better and a real enjoyment in being involved in Christian activities. Chris spent a couple of years working as a volunteer in a Mission Hospital in the Middle East and a Leprosarium in French West Africa. This was followed first by studying in London; and then working in a Congregational Church in Yorkshire during the notorious Miner’s Strike of 1984. Here he met and married Caroline, and they now have 2 married daughters. Together they want to help people find the joy and blessing of being followers of Jesus Christ themselves.
