The journey of LifeSpring Church founded in 1998

LifeSpring Church was founded in 1998 by a small group of Christians under the leadership of Tony and Ursula Wastall, with a vision to bring blessing and transformation to the city of Wolverhampton.


Originally from Essex, Tony had been pastoring in West Yorkshire when God redirected him and his family to move to Wolverhampton to establish a ministry base from which to reach the world with the love and goodness of God.

Over the years LifeSpring Church has met in a hotel, University lecture theatre and school hall. In 2009 a piece of land was bought and construction began on a purpose built facility in the Chapel Ash district of the city. Today the church continues to grow and expand its ministry base touching lives and communities.

LifeSpring Church places high emphasis on strong, healthy relationships. This is fostered through a network of Connect Groups meeting around the city. Connect Groups are the heartbeat of the church where people experience authentic Christianity and reach out to the community.

LifeSpring Church has a passion to extend the love and goodness of God to the city of Wolverhampton and beyond. This is expressed through our prison ministry, evangelism team, debt advice centre, youth work, Alpha courses and many other areas of ministry.

Direction and ministry of the church takes place through a core team led by Tony. LifeSpring Church is a limited company with charitable status led by a board of trustees.

LifeSpring Church puts a premium on partnering with other ministries around the world including; Global Legacy  and Catch the Fire Ministries.
