Lead pastors at Hillsong London step down

by Alex Collett

Two lead pastors from Hillsong London have announced their resignation.

Robby Lewis and his wife Jenny are moving on after 12 years.

On making the announcement within a service, Robby said: “I just want to thank you to you all for the last 12 and half years.

“For the encouragement and the love.

“We are standing here because of you, because of the encouragement, because who you are has rubbed off on us.

"We couldn't be more grateful."

Hillsong UK youth and young adult pastors Daniel and Jo Watson have been confirmed as their successors.

Hillsong London is one of 12 UK campuses belonging to the Australia-based Church. 

Last month, global senior pastor Brian Houston, stepped down from his role, as he faces trial for allegedly concealing sex abuse committed by his father decades earlier.

He denies the charges.

The global Hillsong's new interim pastors are Phil and Lucinda Dooley.
