The leadership team at Barking Baptist Church includes the pastor, deacons, care group leaders, and the people who organise the various youth activities.

Manoj Raithatha is serving as pastor.

We believe in the model of leadership that Jesus demonstrated to His followers, namely that first and foremost a Christian leader is a servant to those they are leading.

We are a diverse group of people who share a common desire to serve God in this place.

Please make yourself known to us – we would like to get to know everyone who comes to the church!
