Ashley Hardingham (Ash) 

Ashley arrived to lead the church family back in September 2011. He is married to Sandra and they have three grown-up daughters Zoe, Freya and Grace.
Ashley's areas of greatest interest lie in leading the church and setting a vision shaped by the Bible and the context of ABC. Ashley also carries a significant role in preaching and teaching and remains utterly sold on how the Spirit animates the Bible and helps shape our lives today.

Ash likes to keep active and is a keen cyclist although the creep of age means he is now resigned to the fact that he is unlikely to play in an England rugby, football or cricket team. Ash loves art, Southend United, subtitled BBC 4 dramas and reading (especially theology, novels and anything which explores contemporary culture). 

Initially Ashley worked in financial markets in the City of London, before re-training as a church minister. He has previously led churches on a south Bradford estate and in north Leeds.
