Gary and Jackie Sidwell are the founding Pastors of Chester Family Church.

In 2008, after a visit to the UK, they felt the call of God to immigrate from South Africa to launch a church in the Chester area.

After much prayer and the blessings of their Senior Pastors, Dr’s Theo and Beverley Wolmarans, they took a mighty leap of faith and obeyed what God had placed within their hearts. With the calling, blessing and anointing of God, coupled with their extensive life and ministry experience, they believe that the training they have received should be shared with those that God has called them to pastor and minister to.


Chester Family Church  opened on the 9th March 2009 in Westminster Park Community Centre, Chester. It is a registered charity
(Charity Registration Number: 1129197) and all the church members, including Gary and Jackie, work for the Lord on a voluntary basis.  

Since March 2009, CFC has grown to enjoy its own identity and relies on people who make CFC their spiritual home. 


We are a local church who believes in the gospel for the local community. CFCunderstands that the calling of the Lord
is the first order of spiritual responsibility.

We believe the hand of God is upon Chester Family Church  and we totally submit to His will.
