Meet the team

Bexleyheath Community Church is lead by a team of elders, along with others who head up various projects and teams.


John Radcliffe

John leads the team and has been the full-time Pastor of Bexleyheath Community Church since 1992. He also served in a variety of leadership roles in another Church.

Before Bexleyheath Community Church was planted, John worked for a large pharmaceutical company in Human Resources. He has the main responsibility for pastoral care and the teaching that takes place in the church and has been a Christian for forty years.

He is happily married to Linda and they have three grown-up daughters. In their spare time Linda and John love to work in their garden and enjoy the outdoors together.

Paul Callaghan

Paul is married to Jeannette and together they have three grown-up children.

Paul very much enjoys being a part of Bexleyheath Community Church and during his spare time enjoys playing the trumpet and, together with Jeannette, walking in the countryside.

John Masheder

John looks after the Kids and Youth Work.

Not one to opt for a traditional hobby, John can often be found putting his collection of stage lighting to good use.

He is married to Paula and they have three grown-up children.

James Lumgair

James heads up the worship teams in the Church. He is passionate about the church encountering God in fresh and meaningful ways.

He is married to Ally and they have a son called Isaac and a daughter called Annie. In his spare time James enjoys creating music, building websites and socialising with friends.
