Meet The Staff
Minister in Charge
Tim has been working as a leader in the Anglican Church for nearly 20 years, in areas of youth, children and mission covering most of the country, the last six of those years as a Vicar.
He has an MA in Theological Education with a particular interest in preaching, mission and leadership, and he is currently completing a Doctorate on priesthood and the charismatic. He has spoken and trained on leadership and mission in such far flung places as America, Australia and New Zealand. He has co-authored several books on prayer and mission and enjoys all avenues of learning.
In his spare time he is the husband of one wife, father of four children, owner of one dog and plays rugby for Guilford, occasionally.
Weini is Oak Tree’s Godly, bubbly caretaker. When she isn’t busy looking after the church building, Weini enjoys spending time with her two daughters, family and friends.
Crystal joined Oak Tree as an administrator in March 2021, which makes her the newest member of our staff team. Her and her partner Sam have also become a part of Oak Tree’s thriving 20s HUB!
Crystal became a Christian in 2014 after a lightbulb moment, and has a whirlwind of a testimony which she happily shares.
When she’s not at church or playing Frisbee, Crystal loves Disney, cosplaying, storytelling, and being artistically creative. Most of all, Crystal enjoys spending quality time with her loved ones.
Sarah is very happily married and loves the union of family and church. During the 22 years that the family have been coming to Oak Tree, two young children have emerged into adults that as children loved Crèche, thrived in Children’s Church and Youth, as well as spending a week each summer at New Wine.
The family have moved to their own churches, but Sarah is enjoying her second stint as church warden and still loves worshipping the Lord with her husband at Oak Tree.
Mark joined CAP in March 2021 and is very excited to be partnering with Oak Tree.
He got married and moved house last year in 2020 despite the restrictions.
He has been an active member of Ealing Christian Centre in Northfields for 25 years.
He spent a number of years helping at the Soup Kitchen in West Ealing, and has served as a children's ministry teacher for 27 years.
Mark loves painting, drawing and travelling and has lived abroad; as well as serving on the mission field as a missionary.
His heart is to see people encounter God's love.
He currently splits his time working for CAP and for a Social Care provider as a Care Worker working with adults with Autism.
