About the Pastor

Peter Wright

Peter Wright


On the 11th August 2018 my wife (Julie), myself (Peter Wright), my two sons Benn & Timothy moved up to Coatbridge from Carlisle.

I was born in Rhodesia or Zimbabwe as it is called now & came to England when I was 14 years old. We moved to a little village called Alsager where I began my studies at Alsager Comprehensive School.

I then went on to college to study construction for two years followed by a further 3 years at Nottingham Trent University studying Engineering Surveying. A year later I got married to Julie & after a number of years working in the manufacturing industry, I felt God call us to move to Sunderland. I began to work in the church full time & then applied to do my Minister In Training under the leadership of my father-in-law, Pastor Alan Dix. In 2009 I was ordained & I took up my first appointment in Carlisle working alongside Pastor Alan Meyer. After nine years we felt God stirring the nest & we felt God say, “It’s time to fly”. We spoke with Kevin & Margaret Peat & in a very short space of time, we felt that Coatbridge was the place to come.
