At the present time, Hornchurch Baptist Church has no minister, following the retirement of Vivienne Alexander.

So what does this mean? Well, while we search for our new minister, the church leadership team, under the guidance of our moderator Andy Drake, aims to care for the Church community with pastoral oversight and provide meaningful opportunities for prayer and worship on a regular basis. They will also, along with the church community, seek to determine the future direction of our Church. During this exciting time, we continue to welcome members of the wider community to our services and other regular events and activities.

We look forward to the time when the oversight of these areas can be shared with and taken up by our new minister.

Church Secretary
