The regional team

Support staff

London Baptists has a team of administrative and support staff who are there to assist and support you in other practical and ministerial subjects.

District ministers

District ministers help support churches in specific parts of London. They help churches practically and are often ‘first responders’ when there are times of difficulty or problems. Most of them hold this voluntary role alongside a local pastorate - so we're very grateful for them. They are especially helpful to churches who are without a minister. They're equivalent to 'area deans' which exist within the Church of England.

If you’re not sure who your District Minister is, please get in touch with Norman Kincaid or your Regional Minister.
