At Life Church we believe leadership is at its best when men and women lead side by side. Life Church has a core leadership team and trustees, both teams help support and run the church.
About Simon and Linda…
Simon is married to Linda and they have four daughters. Simon was trained as a Primary School Teacher in South Wales before taking on the challenge of church leadership which he has been involved with for the past 10 years. He is now currently a full time firefighter for Hampshire and leads Life Church part time. This is only possible through the great support he gets from Linda and the leadership team around him. Simon has a real passion to preach the gospel which he does most Sunday’s. Linda works for a local insurance company in Alton. Alongside supporting Simon she also runs the youth group at Life Church.
About Ben and Alice…
Ben and Alice have lived in Four Marks for several years and are happy to call the village their home. They got married in Four Marks in 2007 and now have three lively children who keep them busy.
After many years training in anaesthetics, Ben became a consultant anaesthetist in 2016 and works at the Queen Alexandra hospital in Portsmouth. Alice currently works part time for Life Church, carrying out a variety of tasks ranging from administrative to pastoral. Prior to this, Alice worked as a learning support assistant in a local primary school.
Their joint interest in music has led to them developing a passion for worship and they regularly lead worship on a Sunday morning. They have a strong desire to serve the church and are excited to see how God will lead Life Church forward in the days ahead.
Alice has been attending church for as long as she can remember, some of her earliest memories are of being at the local C of E in Farncombe, Surrey where she grew up. Alice became a Christian at the age of 15 and has been involved in leading worship and teaching children in Sunday School ever since. She now works part time for Life Church and enjoys the variety of her role, which ranges from administrative to pastoral.
Alice is married to Ben and they have three children. As a wife and mother of three, Alice has very little spare time but, given the opportunity, she loves to play her piano or just sit and read a good book. However, she is most often seen with a baby on her hip and a coffee in her hand!
About Tim and Ruth…
Tim and Ruth were married in 1994 and have 3 children. Ruth was born in Winchester and has lived in the Alton area all of her life, working as a nursery nurse. She now works part-time at the Alton College nursery, as well as being a full-time mum.
Tim is originally from Cumbria and moved down to Hampshire when he was 10 years old. He works in the family television production company, which is based in the village, although work often takes him both nationally and internationally, and he frequently jokes that it’s still better than having a real job!
Both Tim and Ruth have a desire to see people find life in its fullest through a relationship with our loving God.
