Simon & Fiona Turner
Simon is our Lead Elder. Simon with his wife Fiona and their 3 kids Katie, Amelia and Olly moved from Gateway Church, Swindon to New Life, Biggin Hill in 2016. Having spent a short time living and serving in Mumbai, India it was clear that God was leading them to come and serve at New Life. They are passionate about the local community and have a heart for the nations. Simon is also an avid runner and passionate Welsh Rugby fan!
Gareth & Lesley Wales
Gareth has served as an elder for 20+ years and was team leader until a couple of years ago when he handed the leadership onto Simon. Both Gareth and Lesley have been part of New Life Church for the past 40 years having met in the youth group. Gareth is a man of many talents and can turn his hand to almost anything. Lesley and Gareth love spending time with their grandchildren and enjoy their caravan!
Jordan & Rebecca Brown
Megan started at New Life as an Impact training intern for a year before coming on staff as Administrative Support. Meg is engaged to be married.
Jordan and Becca are our current Leadership Interns. Jordan is employed by the church full time and Becca works as a midwife whilst spending much of her ‘free time’ serving in the church. They are following God's call by giving two years to New Life to grow, be trained and serve, seeking what or where God will call them to next.
