Nigel was Inducted as Minister of Canford Heath Baptist Church in November 2014. Nigel’s Christian journey began over 40 years ago at a Don Summers rally in Reading, where he made a commitment that night, and was baptised soon afterwards.
He met Val in 1980, and moved to Bournemouth soon afterwards. They both became very involved in the life of Lansdowne Baptist Church where Nigel led the music and outreach ministry for many years. It was during this time that God clarified to Nigel his call, and in 1992 he started training for ministry at Spurgeon’s College in London while working as a Music Director for a lively Anglican church in West Croydon.
Pastorates in Stafford, Cirencester and Sudbury (Suffolk) followed, before a joyful return to Dorset and the ministry at Canford Heath. Although Nigel enjoys leading worship from the keyboard, he is a pastor/teacher at heart and knows that is the primary ministry to which God has called him.
