About


Hi, I’m Anthony Delaney. I was a police officer in the centre of Manchester for ten years before going into church leadership in various places around the nation. I’m now back in the city leading Ivy; a great network of churches meeting in various places including a cinema, a pub, a warehouse and even a church building. We recently featured in a six page colour supplement in The Independent newspaper.

I also lead NewThing EUROPE to recruit, encourage and train for church planters of 500 new reproducing churches across Europe in the next 5 years, as part of a vision to plant 10,000 new churches across the globe.

I’m married to Zoe, and have three great kids and 3 grand kids. I keep fit by swimming and swinging heavy kettlebells like a madman.

My books and resources aim to help people find their way back to God and live life to the full.

Please keep in touch and as long as you’re polite, I’ll do my best to reply.
