Our Staff and Leadership

Our Staff and Leadership

Andrew Fitzgerald – Minister

Andrew joined us as Minister in November 2015. Andrew had previously attended CBC as a student, worked as student worker and then completed his ministerial formation here with theological training at Spurgeon’s College, London. He spent four years as the Minister of Central Baptist Church, Leicester before his return to CBC. In a sense his return is a homecoming and we look forward to the direction in which God leads us through him. Andrew is married to Jenny with daughters Hope and Ruby-Grace.

Beverley Connolly – Church Cleaner

In a busy City Centre Church it is important to keep the premises clean and tidy. CBC is very fortunate to have Beverley working for us in this area. She helps maintain the buildings but is also brilliant at offering hospitality for the many guests who join us through the week.

Charlotte serves in the church as a New Wine Discipleship Year Student, trained in a local centre and placed specifically amongst our Youth.
