Staff and Leadership

Please find below an introduction to our church leaders.

We praise the Lord that in His goodness to us we are welcoming Paul Sutton to start as our new pastor here at Grange Baptist Church, with his wife Laura, from August 2021.
 
   
Paul Sutton - Pastor

Hello! My name is Paul Sutton. I, along with my wife Laura, will be moving this summer to Letchworth Garden City, for me to take up the role of Pastor at The Grange Baptist Church. For the past four years, following Bible college, I have been Assistant Pastor at Shirley Baptist Church in Southampton. The Lord has led us to Grange and we are really excited about moving to Letchworth and serving the people of Grange. I am originally from Leicester with a love of football (yes of course Leicester City!), music and good coffee. Laura is from Hastings (where we met, and our parents still live). She enjoys baking, spending time with people and has a real heart for children and young people (she has served as the Children’s, Youth and Families worker in the church we’ve been at in Southampton for a couple of years). We are coming with the prayer that the Lord will continue to build His Church on the Grange estate through his word and we look with anticipation to all that lies ahead. If you are in the North Hertfordshire area do introduce yourself - we would love to hear from you!
