Graham and Lou Clarke (Bridge The Gap Leaders)

Graham and Lou are leaders of Bridge The Gap - an initiative reaching out to those who live in our immediate community. Graham is also a member of the Central Leadership Team. The family moved to Aylesbury after spending eight years in London working in outreach heading up a kids club, doing youth work, and leading a prayer ministry team. They are passionate about the Lord and believe that prayer, pastoral care and unity are a vital part of our Christian life. In 2017, Lou also took up the position of Pastoral Care Coordinator and heads up a team who visit those in need. Graham and Lou have three children and five grandchildren.

Jenny Rogers (Central Leadership Team 'CLT')

Jenny has been part of the CLT since 2012, and has been at Southcourt since 2006, after she relocated to Aylesbury from Oxfordshire. She lives just up the road with her husband, Mark and young adult children Matty and Jo. During the week, Jenny works full-time as a teacher at a local primary school - a busy job, which she loves! She is passionate about the idea that we are called to make a difference where we are Monday to Saturday, not just on a Sunday.

Gareth Bithell (Central Leadership Team 'CLT')

Gareth is married to Helen and has two children, Imogen and Reuben. He studied  physics at university, earns his living as a computer programmer, enjoys reading, walking, cooking (eating!) and playing disc golf. He believes that as the body of Christ, the local Church is the hope of the world, God's plan for 'seeking and saving' those that don't know him. He is passionate about seeing the church community being a place of healing, transformation, energising and releasing so that as the church  scattered we are agents of change in our world.

Ruth is married to Pete & they have 3 children, Beth, Emma & Josh. They have been at SBC for 12 years. Ruth’s hobbies include baking, card making & colouring! Over many years she has been involved in children and youth work and has a passion to see young people come to know God as their personal saviour. She also loves to see the church lost in praise & worship.
