Youth and Communities Minister
Doug Sembuuze
I am married to Hannah and we have three kids. For a few years we lived in Albania as mission workers before I became Team Leader of a mission training college in Birmingham. I support Villa and enjoy a good curry night out!

 

I was born and raised in Kampala, Uganda. I moved to the UK in 2007 and during the first few years in England, I was a Youth Worker in the Liverpool and Knowsley area of Merseyside. I moved to Birmingham in 2012. I am married to the competitive and adventurous Bex and we have three boys. I enjoy playing music and taking part in competitive sports. I support Arsenal and my favourite sports are Basketball and Table Tennis.

Church Children's Worker
Lynn Braden

 

 
I was born and raised in Ohio, USA, and have lived in the UK since 2014. Along with doing the children's work at church, I also co-lead a year 7-9 youth group and work in the community cafe at Rowheath. Since I’m American, it means that I have a funny accent, but please don’t hold that against me! I love sunny days, caramel lattes and good hugs.

Anna Burden
I spent 10 years working in a bank before feeling the calling to mission. In 2004 I started Syzygy Missions Support Network, which cares for and supports mission workers. I love gardening, cricket and skiing.   Our family has grown up in Birmingham after we moved here in 1999, joining Rowheath Pavilion Church in 2017 when we moved across the city to this area. I am passionate about justice and mission, challenging things that oppose these and seeing people fulfil their potential. I enjoy meeting people and learning new things. I have worked for the church’s international development charity Christian Aid for over 12 years, and am a trustee of an interfaith charity Mums and Families.

I have been involved with PCC since the beginning where six of us met in our home way back in 1982 and as part of the leadership team since 2000. I have been married to Martin for over forty years and we have three adult children and four wonderful grandchildren. I grew up in Bournville Lane where my parents still live. I am now enjoying semi retirement working part time for ForMission College. I love to travel and my favourite place to be is France in the sun.

 

I am married to Lynda and we have lived in Bournville for more than thirty years. We have three grown-up children and now our grandchildren live nearby. I lead a college that helps to equip people for leadership. Alongside that role I love to write books and have the opportunity to travel and speak in various countries around the world.

I have been a member of Rowheath Pavilion Church since 2009. I was ordained in 2010 and I live in Kings Norton with two housemates and my dog. I love travelling, crafts, and early morning walks.

Stephen Gray
I'm married with 2 children and live locally. I have "studied" Sciences and engineering (4 degrees!) and also love curry, mountains, running, travel, games, Sci-fi books and films. My favourite song "100 billion x" kind of sums up what I think..   Born in Birmingham, I studied Japanese and have worked mainly in the engineering and software industries. Life has been a great adventure since Jesus came into my life when I was eighteen, and I love exploring  the meaning of life with the people who come on Alpha. I enjoy walking in the mountains.
