Richard Mortimer has been the pastor of Eastcombe Baptist Church since 2003. Before coming to Eastcombe he was Rev John Shearer’s assistant in Nuffield for two years.
Richard trained at LTS (now London Seminary) which he described as two of the best years of his life. Richard was the book secretary for a year whilst there, and still has a great interest in books covering a wide spectrum of issues.
Richard is married and has four children.
We meet in the old Baptist church, dating back to 1801. It has an incredible history, especially when you look at its location. It’s placed right on the village green, and can seat approximately 350 people! The pulpit and pews are still intact, as is a wonderful pipe organ. We look forward to renovating the organ and pray for the right organist to come and join us.
