It has been a privilege for me to serve as the Pastor at Spurgeon Baptist Church since being appointed on 4th January 2009. Together with deaconate we have seen the church grow and develop together. We have shared together in a significant re-designing and rebuilding the front reception area of the Church and have recommenced a children’s work as part of our Sunday services.


We enjoy fellowship and communion with other Pastors, Ministers and Church leaders on the Island. We are part of the Southern Counties Baptist Association under the Regional Leadership of Rev. Grenville Overton.
