Our leadership is made up of our Minister and Deacons who are all Trustees.
Keith Wilson – Minister
I’m married to Ann and we have two children. As a family we’ve been part of Lower Earley Baptist Church for over 10 years. I trained at the Scottish Baptist College but love living in Berkshire.
I’m passionate about learning more about Jesus and what it means to be a Christian in a complex and varied world.
In my spare time I like to get out and about. You might see me walking with our dog.
Dorothea Lowman – Church Secretary
I grew up in a Christian home and am deeply thankful to have heard the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ early on in my life. I made my personal commitment to follow Jesus Christ in my teenage years.
During my student years in my home country of Germany, where I trained as an interpreter, I was active in the Christian Union. This led later on to being involved in student ministry in Spain, where I had lived before. Then together with my husband we served students in the Netherlands and parts of the former Soviet Union.
I have a passion for seeing church members using their God given gifts, and to point others to our living God and Saviour Jesus Christ.
We have two adult children. I love travelling, learning languages, meeting people from different cultures and being active in the great outdoors.
(Term of office 1 year - until 13/10/2022)
Stephen Newton - Treasurer
I am married to Alison and we have two adult children.
I grew up in a Christian family and for much of my life I was involved in church youth work.
We relocated to Lower Earley at the start of the school summer holidays 2007 due to a work relocation and our two children attended the holiday club. We have been at LEBC ever since.
When possible, I play Badminton and I also have an interest in politics.

Rebecca Hogg - Deacon
I grew up attending church, became a Christian in my teens, and was baptised when I was 17. After finishing university in 2008 I moved to Lower Earley and started attending LEBC.
I have a passion for telling children and young people about Jesus, and my main involvement at church is with the children in Bright Sparks and Ignite.
During the week, I am an Acoustic Consultant and carry out noise and vibration testing on building services, both in the laboratory and on site.
I am married to Richard and we have a daughter. Most of my time is spent running around after a toddler, but I do enjoy going for walks, reading books, and playing board games when I get the chance
(Term of office 3 years - until 17/11/2023)
Jacques Zeeman - Deacon
I am married with 3 kids (including twin daughters).
I'm fortunate to have grown up in a Christian home so I have been spending time in church since I can remember. I don't recall a specific date for giving my life to Christ but recall numerous times of recommitting to him.
My wife and I moved to the UK from South Africa in 2001 (the day after our wedding) and have been in Lower Earley ever since; joining LEBC in 2010.
Being South African I used to be a keen sportsman and viewer, but since the kids came along they tend to take precedence.
