Raise a banner on a bare hill top.  
Shout to them, beckon them to enter the gates.

Isaiah 13:12

The Leadership Team

Lynne Bishop

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 Bishop

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.

Ronald Owen

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.

Jennifer Kelly

Jenny joined New Barn Christian Fellowship in 1995 at the beginning of the new church plant.  She took ‘time-out’ when her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and Jenny cared for her mother at home.  Jenny became interested in becoming a Christian whilst working at Shell Centre in London in 1975 when a work colleague introduced her to Jesus.  After that she took an active role in running Alpha Courses in the City of London whilst working and also with New Barn Christian Fellowship. 

Retiring to Cyprus when her husband, Malcolm, retired, she trained as a Samaritan and worked as such for many years.  She is passionate about introducing people and children to Christ.  She is part of the leadership team in the church’s junior church (Ground Breakers) and works tirelessly for Welcome Wednesday, New Barn’s outreach to the local community.  Widowed in 2018, Jenny has two children and five grandchildren.
