Rev. Lucy Wright
What she does
Lucy started as Minister at EPBC in October 2018. Prior to this, she studied Theology firstly at Bangor University and then spent three years at Bristol Baptist College to become an accredited Baptist Minister and spent 9 years with her previous church.
Helping others discover God's love for themselves and for the wider world, is a passion of Lucy's. She particularly enjoys encouraging others to see the relevance of the Bible for today through worship on a Sunday, during the week, and helping others to discover how they can put it into practice in their own lives.
Lucy enjoys Zumba, music, the theatre, films and walking in the countryside or in one of London's many parks. She is also a keen reader and collector of books.
Our Minister In Training
What she does
Cherie began her ministerial training at EPBC in September 2020, having felt God’s call on her life to Baptist ministry, but she has been a member here since 2009. She works three days a week for the church and spends three days studying Theology at Spurgeon’s College.
Encouraging the spiritual lives and growth of others is important to Cherie, especially through the church homegroups and one-to-one coffees.
She loves worship, leading from the piano, helping to bring others into the presence of God. Cherie enjoys listening to music and making music with others, walking in the countryside, and drawing and painting.
What do they do?
Working with and supporting the Minister, the task of the diaconate is to offer:
Spiritual Leadership - Praying through and discussing key issues in the life of the church and empowering church members to own and develop the ministry and mission of our fellowship.
Pastoral Concern - Contributing to the wider pastoral network of care, welcoming people at the door on a Sunday and serving people at Communion.
Practical Oversight - Each deacon taking responsibility for some aspects of the church's ministry and working with others to develop that part of our fellowship.
Legally, deacons are Managing Trustees of the church and work in line with our Trust Deed and the UK charity laws.
