Joel Pridmore (Pastor)

Meet Our Pastor
Joel Pridmore has been our senior pastor since September 2012. He moved here from Swansea where he was on the team at City Church (Formerly City Temple), having previously also served at City Church St Albans and Elim Church, Cheltenham. He is a born and bred ‘Devonshire Dumpling’ – having grown up in the East Devon Town of Honiton.
Joel is passionate about helping people to connect with God, experience His love and find their identity in Christ. He is an established worship leader and songwriter, being a part of the leadership team of ElimSound and having led worship at numerous conferences and events in the UK and oversees.
Joel has three children. Two sport-mad boys named Isaac and Reuben, and their little gem of a sister Lydia! When he’s not ministering in church he can often be found indulging his slight obsession with guitars, cheering his children on from the sidelines or playing football himself!
