I am married to Nicky and we have four grown-up daughters. Previously, I was a trustee and then an elder at our former church, where I was involved in the worship team and children's ministry.
I believe God wants to continue to build a church in New Barn committed to both serving its community and introducing them to Jesus Christ. I believe that our community should easily see that we are Jesus' disciples because we love one another in good times and tough times. Nicky and I are committed to serving the church at New Barn Christian Fellowship by encouraging and discipling them to be more like Jesus, enabling them to spread the good news to all the community.
Lynne has been a member of New Barn Christian Fellowship along with her husband, Paul, since they moved to the area in 2002. Music has always been a significant part of her life and Lynne now enjoys playing the ‘cello and worshipping God as part of the worship team. Born disabled, Lynne was brought up to overcome obstacles and prejudices that came across her path and, as a result, feels that God has called her to have a particular affinity with those who are vulnerable or face challenges in their lives.
Working as a civil servant, Lynne is part of disability groups within the workplace and draws on the Bible passage John 9:1-5 as anyone whether disabled, vulnerable or those going through a tough time can have God’s works displayed through them. A member of the Leadership Team since 2019, Lynne feels that God is using her for a purpose and direction.
Paul grew up within a Christian family who attended Wilmington Christian Fellowship where he was involved in various youth groups and church activities along with his brother. He and his wife, Lynne, moved to New Barn Christian Fellowship (a church plant from Wilmington Christian Fellowship) after they moved home in 2002 to New Barn.
Paul has been a trustee of the church since 2019 and is an active member of the Leadership Team, who is often to be found with Ron working the church's media projector on a Sunday morning, and supporting other church events. Having worked in business banking for over 43 years, it was natural for Paul to become the church's treasurer, a role which he has fulfilled for over 10 years. His work with New Barn Christian Fellowship gives him the opportunity to serve God and the local community, which he values.
Ron has been attending New Barn Christian Fellowship for nearly years, Currently, he is part of the Leadership Team and can be found most Sundays either leading or preaching, as well as sharing the church's media projector duties with Paul.
Ron is actively involved with the Welcome Wednesday initiative here at New Barn, as well as supporting the men's group ministry.
Ron has recently retired but was previously working for several computer software companies, pimarily as sales support, being tasked with building and demonstrating business software to potential customers.
Outside of church activities, Ron is keen on football, both playing veteran's football as well as supporting the local team, Ebbsfleet United.
