Meet The Team

Chris and Nic

Chris and Nic Kimmance lead Ashford Vineyard church. Chris works full-time for AV, while Nic works part-time as a Speech and Language Therapist and part-time for AV. They have 2 young daughters- Maddy and Lucy, Chris has a grown up daughter- Martha, and a cheeky pooch named Lola.

For the story of how they came to start Ashford Vineyard, see our ‘About Us’ page. 








Cluster Leaders

Ashford Vineyard has a Cluster Leadership Team that work with Chris and Nic to help the church thrive and grow. As a team, they spend time together to seek God in His plans for the church and Ashford community as a whole. They’re not employed by AV but they give their time and energy to see God’s plans put into motion! They all bring different gifts and skills, and hold different areas of responsibility. We love them very much, and are really glad they’re with us!
