Meet the Staff Team

The staff team at SBC cover a very wide range of roles and activities, all of which contribute to our vision to be a church for the whole community. You can find out more about us on this page.


I’ve been the pastor here since January 2012. I grew up in the New Forest, and was theologically trained at Moorland’s College near Christchurch. In over 30 years of Christian ministry I have been an itinerant evangelist and been in team ministry in three growing churches. I am married to Kathie with whom I have two children and five grandchildren. On my days off I struggle to play to my golf handicap of two, but enjoy the challenge of the game and the banter in the club house.


I work in the church office concentrating on the statistical, information gathering and financial aspects of church administration, though cover the full range of office duties as necessary.  I am married with two adult children. I was privileged to work for Communicare, a charity helping disadvantaged people in Southampton, for 17 years. I enjoy concerts, walking and watching the Saints.


I am the church cleaner. I am also a leader of the youth club we run on Fridays and a helper in the toddler group on Tuesday mornings. God has given me the gifts of dancing and singing.


I am SBC’s office administrator and co-ordinator of the New Dawn Child Contact Centre. I am married to Brian and have two daughters. I enjoy singing and crocheting in my spare time. I have been part of SBC for over 15 years.


I am SBC’s ‘Children and Family Worker’.  I meet children and their families through Speckled Frogs Toddler Group, ‘Wacky Wednesdays’ and ‘Wild Wild Wednesdays’ clubs as well as Messy Church.  I enjoy working with other churches in a variety of events.  As a church member, I am involved with our Sunday morning group for teenagers and the prayer ministry team. I am married to Dave and love walking in the New Forest, meals with friends, reading and watching films.
