Christ City Church is led by Steve & Leanne Vaughan. Read about their early story and how the church began.
Steve works for HubSpot and plays Gaelic Football for the Kilmacud Crokes. He blogs at stevevaughan10.com and thinks life is too short to drink bad coffee. He used to be a Pastor at Mosaic Church Leeds and before that worked for Christians in Sport. Steve is passionate about the bible, business, good food and drink, sport and his family.
Leanne is a cook, cleaner, maid, launderette worker, chauffeur, interior designer, playtime supervisor, conflict mediator and personal assistant to two cherubs alongside her work with church and in her spare time loves to dance, upcycle furniture, sing and play guitar. She used to like reading!
