The Church Leaders

Please find below a brief introduction to our church leaders and staff members.

D Dickson profile PhotoDavid Dickson - Lead Pastor

David joined New Life as its Lead Pastor in April 2019.  Since he completed his Masters degree in the mid 1990’s, David has gained a wealth of experience in leadership, teaching, and church life in general.  He is passionate about effective church leadership and as well as mission work in all its forms, from practical work in the local community through to reaching out internationally.  Over the years he has travelled widely, to teach, preach and to coordinate leadership development at the local level, both in the UK and overseas. He has been actively involved with Charis Ministries, and is one of the founders of this Charity.

For his leisure time he loves nothing better than reading a good book, watching movies or dining out with his wife Beverley.  As well, for physical activity he is enthusiastic about getting into the gym and (attempting) to play golf. David and Beverley have been married since 1990 and they have two adults sons: Nathan and Gareth.
