Longford Baptist Church is currently without a Minister.

On Thursday 7th February 2019 our church meeting approved the appointment of Rev Matt Jeffrey as the minister of Longford Baptist Church. He was due to take office on the 1st April, but since has received a calling from a charity to work for them.

Matt had acted as our Moderator during our time of interregnum.

Moving forward and with the help of our Regional Minister, Rev Neil Le Tissier we will seek to appoint a new Moderator.

We will remain in contact with Matt and would like to thank him for his guidance, encouragement and friendship during his time as Moderator. 






The Rev Michael Edwards retired from the ministry on Easter Sunday 2015.
