Ministry Team & Leadership

Minister – Rev Jason BorlaseFamily

Jason joined the ministry team in 2009 as youth pastor.  Recently he has taken on a wider role and accreditation in general ministry. Responsibilities include youth, families and community.  He is married to Catherine and they have two sons, Joel and Micah. After leaving school he worked in the ‘interesting’ world of Commercial Insurance, whilst also being involved in leading youth work at a Baptist church on the Wirral. Jason enjoys football, golf and go-karting as well as being a keen fan of Formula One and Everton FC.

He is passionate about seeing the whole church grow in their faith and walk with God, encouraging whole life discipleship, serving together and being community.  He is keen to ensure the needs of the wider community around are met, and that church takes seriously its call to share Jesus with those around us.


Waugh Associate Minister – Rev Niels Waugh

Niels was sent out into ordained ministry from Hereford Baptist Church in 1986, after training at Bristol Baptist College. After pastorates in Norwich (10 years) and Bridgwater (11 years) Niels ‘retired’ back to Hereford in 2007 - but you can see from the website what ‘retirement’ means! He has been married to Carole since 1963 and they have three adult offspring - Robin (married to Sue, with 2 children), Ivan and Shayla. He is keen on DIY and tropical fish and is an armchair sports enthusiast (especially Formula 1, rugby and athletics) - when time permits. It is great to be back in our sending church and to be able to support the developing ministry and mission here!
