Who we are


We believe that God equips all his people with gifts and that everyone in the congregation has a role to play and gifts for service.

Below you can find some information about those who serve in leadership at the church:

Chris Tapp (Pastor)   Ian and Joan

Chris has been the Pastor at Stanmore Chapel since September 2018. Previously he was Director of a national debt charity before being trained for ministry at St Helen's Bishopsgate. Prior to coming to the Chapel he was the Assistant Pastor at Spicer Street Church in St Albans. He is married to Erica and they have three young children. He's also a Stockport County fan, which isn't something you find much in these parts!


Ian (elder) is married to Joan and has two grown up daughters. He has been attending Stanmore Chapel since his teens, which is more years ago than he cares to remember! Ian and Joan have long supported and been involved in missionary and evangelistic work including with The Gideons and The Society For Distribution of Hebrew Scriptures.

Sheila   Stephen and Lorraine
Sheila (finance and secretary) is a long time Stanmore resident and servant of the Chapel. We wouldn't know what to do without her!   Stephen (elder) works in the City and is married to Lorraine. They have three sons. Stephen grew up in Lancashire, while Lorraine, despite Latin American roots, was born and bred in Stanmore. They have been involved with Stanmore Chapel since graduating from university in the early "noughties". When not working you are most likely to find them having a quiet coffee somewhere.
