Mike Waldron

Mike was a school teacher of Craft Design and Technology and is now the Assistant Pastor at TBC. “My wife Sue and I have been at TBC since 1981, and throughout that time I have been involved in the music and worship, and have been in leadership for much of this time.  I am still involved in leading worship, and have a desire to see every member of the church discover the power and God-dynamic of being worshippers themselves, rather than being passive spectators. My other main motivation is for people to see the power of the Word of God (the Bible) active in their personal lives and relevant in every situation - whether for direction for life, solving one's own deep inner issues, or simply a day-to-day rich experience of walking with God, and seeing him meet every need." 

Dave Hobbs

Dave in an Elder at TBC.  "I have been involved within the fellowship since 1974 when Chris (my wife) and myself moved to Tewkesbury after getting married. We have seen our three children grow up through the church. My main passion in all that time has been the young peoples work and in particular the boy Covie group. It has been a delight to share Jesus with so many boys down the years, and an even greater joy to see many go on and serve the Lord either within our own church or elsewhere. My prayer is very much that the Lord will touch the hearts of those who have heard down the years but have yet to respond. As an Elder and trustee of the church I feel I am in a very priveledged position in the Lord's service."

Jo GoodchildJo Goodchild

Jo is the Children and Young People's (CYP) Coordinator at TBC. "I've been attending the church since I was 14 years old and have been involved in youth or children's work in some way since I was 16.  I started working as the CYP coordinator in September 2012 and love it! I am married to John and we have three daughters, and church is our extended family. My hope is to see children and young people in this church to become part of the church family, contributing to church life, forming valuable relationships with the older members, and to see their lives on fire for Jesus as we all 'do life' together."

Ruth West Ruth

Ruth has been working as the Schools Worker since September 2012 and has been part of TBC since 2009 when she moved to Tewkesbury to marry David.  "I really enjoy meeting children and young people in the local primary and secondary schools. I hope to build strong relationships between schools and the local church to give young people the opportunity to explore faith in Jesus for themselves, in a creative and relevant way"
