Tim and Danni Lockwood

E-mail Tim and Danni Lockwood

Tim has been in Christian ministry and leadership since graduating from Bible college in South Africa in 1994. Tim started his ministry at the New Forest Community church as the youth pastor before meeting his wife Danni and pastoring churches in the waterside area of Southampton and Guildford. In 2017 Tim and Danni felt a call to move back to the Waterside after six years of Pastoring a church in Guildford. In 2018 Tim returned to New Forrest Community Church to take up the role of Senior Pastor. Tim believes that being a Pastor is a ministry that goes beyond just the church family and has actively worked part time in other secular roles including being a Policer Officer for nine years where he helped to develop the Governments PPO scheme in the New Forest and more recently helping to manage a ground breaking cancer charity which supports precision surgery for below the belt cancers. Likewise Danni works as an interior designer who teaches classes at Eastleigh college and works at a local opticians as an optical adviser. Tim and Danni’s heart is to build a church that sees people regularly coming into a new and ever growing relationship with God through Christ.
