Darren and Kathryn have two gorgeous little boys, Jotham Freedom and Finlay Francis.  They both have a big heart and relentless passion for building the local church and impacting the town in which they were born, Bury!

They both grew up in Church, and as young adults they grew in leadership and character serving on staff at the Bridge Church, Bolton. During their time there, they gave oversight to youth ministry, pastoral care, developed and led discipleship courses and missions overseas.

In January 2006 the Senior Pastors of the Bridge Church released Darren and Kathryn to pioneer and build a passionate, life changing Church in the heart of Bury. With a handful of people, they hired a community centre in a local estate and began the Freedom journey. The rest is History, so they say… Darren and Kathryn love life, adventure and people.

Darren is a great strategist and leader. He’s a big fan of Indiana Jones, Manchester United and his boys! He also loves chilling out at Starbucks with a caramel macchiato.

Kathryn has a big heart to see people live with passion, purpose and to live FREE. She has a contagious spirit, with an ability to communicate in a real way. She loves socialising, Christmas and being ginger.
