Jason Nike - Senior Pastor and General Manager

Jason, his wife, Laura and their two children, Jessica and Peter, moved to Battersea in 2008 to take on the ministry of the church, which is today known as Fresh Ground London. Originally from Manchester and The Wirral, they met on a youth holiday when they were 14. They have a passion for serving the community and oversaw the vision and redevelopment of our building into what it is today. Laura is an experienced teacher and has taught in several local schools. She is currently Assistant Principal at Oasis Academy in Putney and oversees the Sunday School program at Fresh Ground. She also loves interior design and is responsible for our decor. Jason loves to play tennis and on his afternoon off can often be spotted watching the latest releases at the local cinema. If you would like to meet up with Jason for pastoral care, to discuss faith, baptisms, weddings or simply have a chat over coffee (on us), please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
