Crayford Baptist Church

Pursue righteousness, faith, love & peace along with all...2 Tim 2:22

Our Deacons

We believe that, under God, the government of the local church is best done by church members meeting together in a spirit of prayer and friendship to discuss and agree on what God wants them to do. Every member is encouraged to be involved and use their gifts.

Appointed by our Church family, the team are jointly responsible, under the leadership of Andy for overseeing the spiritual direction of the church, worship and prayer, discipleship (both teaching and pastoral care), outreach and, in the role of Trustees, the administration of the church.

Our current trustees consists of:
