PEOPLE

Hackney Church is led by Al & Liv Gordon, who are passionate about seeing people live impactful, creative lives that bring hope to the city. Al & Liv served on the leadership team of HTB for ten years, where Al co-founded Worship Central, pioneered multisite church, and produced the Alpha Film Series. Al is a trustee of Alpha International and Charity: Water. Liv is an architect, and together they are raising three young children in Hackney.

Hackney Church is a growing church with a big vision to bring hope to the people of East London. We have a small staff team who support hundreds of volunteers from every walk of life, who turn our vision into reality. We are always looking for brilliant people to join our staff team, so if you would like to explore working with us, click here to get in touch.
