Leaders of the church

The Ministry Team of River Ministries (Norfolk) is called the church council and is made up of both the legal managers(charity Trustees) and spiritual oversight of the church. There is a Team of Pastors which consists of:-


Rev. Roger Pawsey -
Mrs. Tina Pawsey -
Mr. Graham Thomas -

While Mrs Angela Pye is the Church Secretary


Roger Pawsey. is one of the ministers of the church and has been in full-time ministry since 1989, before which he worked in retail management. Roger became a full status minister in the Assemblies of God in 1996. He is married to Tina and they have 3 children, Joanne, Natasha and Colin.They married in 1969 and spent some time in Australia before settling in Norfolk. In 1983 Roger became a Christian at the age of 34, they attended a Brethren Chapel but after a short time joined a Pentecostal Church. Roger's prayer as a young Christian was "Lord I don't want to be an armchair Christian". His call to the ministry came through Isaiah 42:6-7 and he says that his life is a testimony to the power of God's word and His loving faithfulness. Roger also works with Watton on the Web to promote the Christian Gospel and bring encouragement to the saints of God across the world.

Tina Pawsey. Tina became a Christian in 1983 at the age of 33, after 18 months of searching for the meaning of life. For three months she heard the gospel preached at a local village chapel, after which she invited Jesus Christ into her life as Lord and Saviour. Early on in her Christian life Tina felt her calling to be from John 21 where Jesus asked Peter to feed his lambs, take care of his sheep and feed his sheep, and feels this ministry to be complementary to Roger's as they work together in the ministry. Tina is a qualified, accredited counsellor and has a desire to "...bind up the broken hearted, proclaim freedom to the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners..." (Isaiah 61:1). She also has a desire to see women rise up to their God-given ministry so encourages them to develop in confidence, to reach their potential and to be released into ministry within the church. Tina and Roger have a growing number of grandchildren and she also enjoys spending time with them.

Graham Thomas. Graham became a Christian in 1992, he is married to Terrie and has two daughters Clare and Alison, and two grandchildren Joshua and James. Graham pastors the growth groups within the church, he has a heart after God and a heart for people. Graham hungers to see God move powerfully in Watton and to see people saved and set free. A verse that he continually refers to is from Hosea 6:1 "Come, let us return to the LORD."

Angela Pye. Angela met Chris when she was training to be a teacher, and married him in 1972. She became a Christian in 1984 after seeing the dramatic change in her husband. She had always attended church and thought that she was a Christian, until she realised that Chris had found a reality she had never experienced. After two or three months of seeking God she too came into a personal relationship with Jesus. Since that time Angela has worked alongside Chris in reaching out with the gospel to those the Lord has led them to. Angela is secretary of the church, and enjoys working in administration to enable things to flow efficiently!
