Our leaders

Our church is led by elders (who are also the trustees of the church).

Grant Spratley
Grant is married to Claudine and they have three boys. He is originally from South Africa, although he now supports England - except when they play the Springboks! They have lived in England for many years, serving in churches in Buckinghamshire, Wiltshire and now Dorset. Most of that time was spent serving in youth and children's ministry. Grant is now the full-time pastor.

Jeremy Whiteley
Jeremy worked for some 40 years in the NHS as a manager at a number of different places.  He became a Christian through the Navigators while at University, and has since been a member at churches in Surrey and Hampshire before coming to Verwood Road.  He is married to Linda and has two grown-up boys.
