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!
