meet the team
BEN AND KAAT DOGGETT
Ben and Kaat are passionate about Jesus’ church and committed to seeing it fulfil its mandate to make disciples of all nations. Ben grew up on the Isle of Wight and Kaat in Belgium and they met at the Jubilee Training Centre in Maidstone in 2010. They married a few years later and then spent many years leading within youth ministry.
They began to lead Pathways Church in 2021 and count it a privilege to seek for God’s Kingdom to come in the beautiful village of Lenham and its surrounding areas. They have 3 young children and love the adventure of pursuing God together as a family!
DAVE AND JENNY NEEDHAM
Dave grew up in Dover and Jenny is from Nottingham. They met at University and moved to Lenham nearly 30 years ago, where they have raised their three, now grown up, boys. They have been involved in local church leadership for much of that time, originally at the Lenham United reformed Church and now at Pathways.
They both love village life and inspiring others to get involved in serving the community. Dave enjoys DIY and watching motorsport. Jenny focuses on family, church and the community. Her main passions are worship and helping others encounter God through His word.

As we serve our community
Pathways church represents the fulfilment of a long journey. Some of you may remember the Lenham United Reformed Church which was on Maidstone Road, (now Tolhurst Close), which closed its doors for the last time in 2012. All the URC members joined Jubilee Church, Maidstone for a period of refreshing and re-training.
We made many new friends during that time. However it was always the plan to come back to Lenham. In 2014 a church planting team was formed under the leadership of Johnny and Estelle McCabe and Pathways Church was launched in May 2016. Then in October 2021 Ben and Kaat Doggett took over as the new lead couple at Pathways.
We feel privileged to have the support of a resource church like Jubilee.
