HBC folk
Who's who

We have a wonderful team of folk who keep the church running day-to-day. They are ably supported by a team of elders and deacons, who together form the leadership of Heaton Baptist. 

Staff team
Dave   Aileen
Rev. Dave Tubby - Senior Minister   Aileen Innes - Welcome & Wellbeing Ministry Leader
Dave joined us in 2018, and has a real passion for seeing Jesus changing peoples lives, and seeing people growing in their faith. He has a community heart and believes that church should be looking to serve beyond itself. Committed to the wider area, he currently serves as Chair of Heaton Community Network and is a Trustee for Northern Baptist Association.

Married to Rachel, he has two children and is a Brentford fan. When he's not in church, he enjoys spending time with his family on the beaches or in the hills. 
  Aileen has worked at Heaton Baptist for the last 12 years. She has been in youth ministry in the North East for the past 20 years and her heart is  to see young people grow and flourish in their faith, and she has a real passion to see young people raised up and released into all that God has for them. She also loves to work with families, and loves being involved in Messy Church and All Age services, bringing different generations together. She is passionate about discipleship and loves to help people of all ages grow closer to Jesus. 

Aileen is married to Gordon, and they have two children, Jack and Grace. She enjoys climbing mountains, exploring new places, going to the cinema and eating good food!

Emma 2
Emma Foster - Students Co-ordinator   Elaine Watts - Office Manager
Emma grew up at Heaton Baptist Church and after spending 4 years away at university returned to HBC to do a gap year helping to lead on the youth team. She enjoyed it so much that she has stayed for another year continuing her role on the youth team and she now also helps to lead the student team!

Emma loves to see young people and students learn more about Jesus, faith and what that means for them.   
  Elaine is brilliant at almost everything. I can’t think of anything she doesn’t work like a trooper for. She is meticulous, a brilliant listener, a wise head, and a faithful team-player who we are very grateful for. All in all, she’s marvellous but she hasn’t written anything here yet!!
