As an independent church TCC is led by our own leadership team ('elders') and helped by our own operations team ('deacons'). We have 2 paid staff but we long to see everyone in TCC flourish as they serve one another, building up the body of Christ and doing the good deeds which spring from the gospel.

Stuart Dean is the full-time Minister of TCC. He trained in London with the Proclamation Trust and at Oak Hill Theological College. Stuart has previously worked for churches in Kent and Sussex. Stuart is married to Rachel and they have four children.

Ali Steele has responsibilities for women's ministry, pastoral care and counselling. She is passionate about how Jesus puts broken people and broken lives back together. She can often be seen with a bucket of tea under a huge pile of knitting! She is married to Patch and has two children.


At TCC we have three core values:

WORD - We believe God speaks, transforms and guides us through his word, the Bible. We are  committed to putting the Bible at the heart of church life.

COMMUNITY - We aim to be a community where we support and encourage one another to live lives transformed by Jesus.

MISSION - We long for our friends, neighbours and local community to find out who Jesus is and what it means to know and follow him.
