Here are some of the lovely people who help with the daily running of Tynings Lane Church!
Jen is the Minister at Tynings Lane Church. She came to Aldridge in Jan 2016 to lead the Hothouse and Tynings Lane Church from her native north east. As well as being passionate about helping people discover the God who loves them she is also keen to ensure the Midlands discovers the joy of pease pudding. Jen loves to watch F1, cook for people and spend time listening to their stories.
I started work as Children and Families Worker at Tynings Lane Church in Jan 2018. I have always been passionate about enabling children and young people to grow in their relationship with our wonderful Father God, this job was made for me! I love meeting new people and walking alongside families on this crazy journey of life. I am married to Neil and we have 6 children together aged 28, 25, 21, 14, 13 & 7 years. As a family we love to travel around the UK, especially Scotland and Cornwall. In my limited spare time I love to read, play guitar, and meet with friends over a curry.<br />
I look forward to getting to know you!
I'm Melanie and I'm a recent addition to the Warden Team at Tynings. I'm an Aldridge girl although my husband Ian and I managed to escape to Canada for a short while. I absolutely love Austria, especially the mountains and wish I could transport a few into my back garden (doesn't the Bible talk about faith moving mountains?) but I don't think they'd fit. Ian and I have 2 teenage children who are great (most of the time!). I really pray that the people at Tynings will experience the presence of God in their lives and it will set their hearts on for with love for him.
Hi I’m Gary Watson. I’ve been a warden at TLC for just over a year and I’m a regular part of the worship team. I originally hail from the green and pleasant land of Northumberland but have now lived in the Midlands for more than half of my natural life, time I will never get back! I’m married to my awesome wife, Carol (the reason I’m in the Midlands) and have 2 lovely girls (Ciara & Amelia), a cat, hamster and most recently a cockapoo called Barney. TLC is by far the most welcoming church we’ve ever experienced and I count it a great privilege to be part of the family here. I’m really excited to see what God will do next and how our LITTLE church will accomplish BIG things for His Kingdom.
My name is John and I'm married to Pauline and have lived in Aldridge for a long time, and have been a warden for a longtime too! I want Tynings to be a place where you are welcome and can meet God
My name is Trevor Coleman and I have been a Church Warden at Tynings Lane since April 2014, where I have been worshipping for 27 years. I’m a local man and married to Shirley. My day job is a builder and when I get the time I like to go fishing and walking, preferably by lakes and mountains. I’m really excited about what God is doing at Tynings at this time. My favourite thing about Tynings is the people and their love for God.
My name is Steve Harrison and I have been a Reader in Aldridge for the last 32 years. I am involved in leading services, preaching, taking funeral services and a service at Aldridge Court Nursing Home once a month. I am also Deanery Treasurer, a post I've held for over 30 years. I also play and sing with the Tynings music group, and help with the Film Club once a month.
