Longford Baptist Church is currently without a minister after the Rev Michael Edwards retired from the ministry on Easter Sunday 2015.

During this time of interregnum we shall have visiting ministers and lay preachers leading our worship services.

The Rev Matt Jeffrey is our Moderator and is helping and guiding the church during its time of interregnum.
