    I’m Ken and I have been pastor of BEC since 1996. I’m a Scot from Edinburgh and before training as a minister I worked as a primary school teacher. I’m married to Margaret and we have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Prior to moving to Doncaster we lived in Wishaw, Lanarkshire. Outside of church I am a governor at a local secondary school and teach on a training course run by the Yorkshire Gospel Partnership. I like watching rugby, walking, cycling and reading.

    Mark Harewood

    Assistant Pastor

    I’m Mark and I’m one of the assistant pastors at BEC. I’m married to Lizzie, a secondary school English teacher. It’s been a privilege to be a part of and serve the BEC family for over 3 years. This is my first time living up North; I’m slowly adjusting to Yorkshire ways! Prior to living in Doncaster I was working in a boarding school in the Cotswolds.

    I was brought up in a Christian family and as a teenager, I came to realise the Christian faith has firm foundations and can be relied upon historically. However it was only when I was 18 that I realised if it is true then I need to trust Christ and live wholeheartedly for Him.

    Assistant Pastor

    Hi, I’m Jonathan, a proud Yorkshireman who was born and raised in Sheffield. I’m married to Anna and we have two young boys, Ben and Sam. I became a Christian at University when I was confronted with the historical truth of Jesus' death and resurrection. In my spare time I enjoy good coffee, family trips to the Wildlife Park and watching whatever sport is on TV.

    Hi, I’m Kathryn, and my role at BEC is to help the church run as smoothly as possible!  I am married to Simon and we have two (nearly) grown up boys.  Outside of church activities I enjoy feeding family and friends, going out for walks, playing the piano and doing the occasional French translation.

    I was brought up in a Christian home where God was loved and honoured, and I came to trust Jesus as my Saviour around the age of 11.  His faithfulness to me has been a constant source of strength and amazement ever since.
