THE English Church in Benidorm recently welcome Trevor and Maggie Ramsey to the town and the church community.

Originally from Belfast, Trevor was formally installed as the church’s new pastor and both he and Maggie are already heavily involved in the church’s work and the community.

Trevor has extensive experience in pastoral work, having pastored three churches in Ireland over the last 35 years, stepping down in March 2021 as Senior Pastor of Newtownbreda Baptist Church in Belfast.


The English Church in Benidorm, which is under the supervision of the Paraclete Christian Network International, has been in existence since 1985.

It is known for its consistent Bible teaching and pastoral care and outreach as it serves the resident expat community in Benidorm .

“We look forward to welcoming you to the services of the church if you live in the area or happen to be passing through,” Trevor said.

The congregation meets at the Gospel Centre, in Torre Principado 12-13 in Avenida de Madrid 26 in the heart of one of Benidorm’s chief tourist areas close to the sea-front.

The Church is rented from the Scandinavian Congregation who own the building and also worship there. From time to time, where possible, the English Church shares activities and fellowship with them.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
