Who we are

Meet the Leadership

Portswood church is led by four teams. Different aspects of leadership are shared across these teams and we have an intentional overlap of leaders serving in multiple teams to maintain cohesion. Come and speak to any of us, especially if you are visiting the church - we'd love to meet you and answer any questions you have about us.

Alternatively, email admin@portswood.org.uk and your query will be directed to the appropriate person.
