Who’s Who - Ministry Team

Diane Watts - Minister (Team Leader)

Diane Watts

Diane joined us as an Associate Minister in September 2010 after spending time with us as a minister-in-training whilst studying at Spurgeon's College.

In June 2012 the church called Diane to become our new Ministry Team Leader, replacing our previous our previous Senior Minister, Mike Elcome, who retired the previous October.

Diane’s passion is to see effective community built where people are able to meet with God and know the potential they have within the kingdom of God.

Youth Minister - Adrian Clark

Adrian came to faith in Jesus as a teenager through the warm acceptance he found from local church youth leaders and has been consistently involved in working with young people ever since.

After training and working for a while as a secondary school Geography teacher, Adrian and his wife felt called to work with street children and young people alongside a church in Uganda for a year, and also toured with a Ugandan children's choir through Europe and America.


To further equip him for Christian youth work, Adrian then did a degree course in youth work and theology at the Centre for Youth Ministry in Oxford. He has had several jobs in youth ministry while studying for his degree and since, working both within church settings and reaching out into schools.

Most recently, Adrian has been working for a Christian charity supporting and encouraging young people in schools in the Oxford area, bringing a Christian presence into the educational environment.

He is passionate about working with young people and helping them to find a hope and a future in Christ.

Adrian is married to Rachel who is a music teacher.
