Wantage Baptist Church has a full-time Pastor, part-time Bible Teacher and a third elder, all of whom work together to lead and shepherd the church. We also have “deacons”, a small group who take responsibility for different areas in the church.
Philip Lambert (Pastor/Elder)
Jez Fernandez (Teacher/Elder)
Roger Frith (Elder)
Martin Torbet (Secretary/Deacon)
Hannelie Watkins (Treasurer/Deacon)
Barrie Steers (Facilities/Deacon)
Sarah Shewring (Youth Work/Deacon)
Dave Hillsdon (Worship/Deacon)
In addition to elders and deacons, we have a number of members who serves as heads of different functions, including Sunday School and Child Protection.
We uphold the principle of “every member ministry” and actively encourage our members to contribute to the work of the church. There are opportunities to become involved in stewarding, music, serving and many more areas.
