Nigel DesboroughPastor and Team Leader
Nigel is the Pastor of Forest Hill Community Church, and has led the church for many years. Seemingly everyone in South East London knows him, which is handy.
Jenny has worked for the church for over 7 years. She focuses particularly on pastoral care, but is also involved in pioneering new initiatives such as Messy Church.
Uli is German in both origin and work ethic. She loves to be warm, to knit and to set the other staff members straight.
Luke AylwardYouth Pastor
When Luke isn't playing reckless games or hanging out with the young people, he can be found playing rugby and engaging in deep theological debates. On Facebook.
Sam works a lot with the worship team, young adults, preaching and media stuff. He is known to forget nearly everything, and to eat lunch at 10am.
Jenny Linker (a.k.a. Jennelle)XLP Worker
Jenny is spending the year working for XLP and helping to change the lives of young people in London. During that year she's on placement with us and we couldn't be more delighted.
