Who We Are

We are a Pentecostal church affiliated with the A.O.G and Evangelical Alliance. We are a vibrant multi-generational church and we want to help people discover the wonderful plan and purpose God has for their lives. Jesus said I have come so they may have life and live it to the full (John 10:10)

We are a multi site church one church in three locations; we have the same vision and the same core values. Each site operates under a local pastor, and may differ a little in style according to the pastor’s gifting and the location culture.


Revive Church was pioneered by Roy and Brenda Taylor in Marple in 1993. In 1995 we were given a church building and moved four miles across the border to New Mills in the High Peak to start Christian Revival Church.


Peter and Janice Bird became Senior Pastors. Passionate about seeing people fulfil their potential in God, they have established Revive Church as a growing and outward looking multi-generational church.


Revive Church has always had a vision to become a resource centre and in 2009 planted it's first congregations in Stalybridge. Revive Church has continued to grow.


  • We believe the Bible is the Word of God. It is whole truth and provides us with principles for every area of life.
  • We believe in one true God. We believe He is alive and wants to have a personal relationship with us. He co-exists in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. While He lived on earth He performed supernatural miracles. He died to take away the sins of the world. He was crucified on a cross, buried in a tomb, was resurrected from the dead and He ascended into heaven. We believe He will return to earth for a second time in the future.
  • We believe there is salvation only through faith in Jesus Christ. He died on the cross to take the punishment due for sin, in order that we may be forgiven of our sins and reconciled to God through him. Jesus was buried and after three days He was raised from the dead. Sin and death could not defeat Him.
  • We believe in water baptism, not by the sprinkling of water on the head but by being fully immersed in water. In this way we follow the biblical pattern for water baptism.
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit baptism. The evidence of the Holy Spirit baptism is the supernatural ability to speak in tongues – a language we have not learned or have known.
  • We believe the Holy Spirit gives us special gifts. He empowers us and gives us the ability to do what Jesus did here on earth.
  • We believe we should live holy lives. Through obedience to the principles and teachings in the Bible we can live lives that please God.
  • We believe in supernatural healing. We pray for the sick because we believe God still works miracles today.
  • We believe that everyone who has become a Christian should remember Him by regularly participating in communion.
  • We believe in eternal life and eternal judgment. Those who have committed their lives to following Jesus will spend eternity with Him in heaven. However, those who have not will be punished for their sins.
