The International Church of Torino truly is an international church! – our congregation comes from Italy and around 20 other nations. We are a warm fellowship of people who enjoy worshiping God and studying His Word in English. We also have the facilities for simultaneous translation into Italian.
We are an evangelical church which began meeting on February 27, 2000, under the leadership of missionaries from ABWE. In 2006 we called our first full-time pastor, Dyfan Williams who served us faithfully for five years before God called him to move on and serve a church in England. His brother Huw Williams then pastored for eight years until 2019, beginning a vibrant student ministry too and now Paul Chatfield is leading us forward.
Pastor Paul Chatfield
Paul Chatfield has been in Italy since 2011 and has a passion to bring the ancient words of the Bible in to speak to the demands of modern life. He has done this within the church pastoring for a few years before ICT as well as working in the university, having lectured in Statistics for 5 years. He has a number of postgraduate degrees (Maths, Statistics, Theology and Psychology) which has enabled him to give evangelistic lectures on a number of topics at various universities – some of which have been recorded on hopeingod.it. In his spare time, he loves reading, supporting Liverpool and eating lots and lots of Italian food.
