Leadership and Staff teams
We currently have two ministers, Astrid and Paul Vaswani, who joined TBC in 2015 as our Community Minister and our Family, Children’s and Youth Minister respectively. Together with five deacons they form the Leadership Team of the church. Two other support staff, Karen and Lizzie, keep them all in order.
Astrid loves crazy hair colours, coffee shops, being a mum and cooking the odd curry or two.

Paul loves running, loud music and good curries, not necessarily in that order.
(Worship and Discipleship Minister)
We’re recruiting! Do you know the right person to join our ministry team?
Rob’s great passions (apart from his family and being a church leader, obviously!) are running and craft beers. Not usually at the same time.
Matt is a keen Saints fan and works hard keeping the books balanced at TBC.
David is a family man, with twin boys at university, and a keen local politician.
Gaz is one of our worship leaders and loves tinkering with gadgets and all things technical.
Beryl balances leadership with running her own recruitment consultancy and pastorally visiting people with her dog, Charlie.
Mavis originally hails from Zimbabwe but has lived in Southampton most of her adult life. For many years she and her husband have been foster carers.
Sian is a mum and a grandma and keeps almost retiring from being a Head Teacher, as well as being a busy church Secretary.
Karen works on the Art UK sculpture project two days a week and then works Mondays and Fridays keeping the rest of us organised at TBC.
(Youth and Children’s Work Assistant)
Lizzie’s role covers most aspects of our youth and children’s work.
