Our Leadership Team
Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.1 Peter ch5 v2-3
Minister in Training
Josh joined the church in September 2021 as our Minister in Training. He is part time with the church, and part time studying at Spurgeon's College.
He is married to Laura, and they have two lively children, Eli and Reuben. When they're not busy with church life they enjoy exploring anywhere with wildlife, parks and theme parks.
Gill, with her husband Harry, has been a member of FBC for over thirty years, half of that time as Church Secretary. Previously she had served our local Baptist Association in several leadership roles. Sudden onset hearing loss and hyperacusis prevented her from continuing with much of this work, but God found other ways for her to continue to serve Him and His Church.
Gill was an infant school teacher, which may become obvious when she speaks in church! Harry and Gill have two sons and six grandchildren; their great desire is to see their family come to know and love Jesus.

"The Word of God declares time and time again that He has a heart for vulnerable people, and the expectations he places upon communities and societies in how we should respond to, and treat those that fall within that category.
This is my role!"
