Who we are

Phil Baiden
I am minister of Hall Gate and Intake United Reformed Churches in Doncaster. I’m a child of the manse and was ordained in 2008. During my time in training I spent a year in Madagascar which had a profound effect on my life and theology. I consider myself to be a classically Reformed minister, who loves the writings of Calvin and the Puritans. I have a special interest in worship and ecclesiology. I’m married to Kerry and have a daughter, Hannah, who was born in 2011.

James Church
I am minister of Radford Road Church and Lillington Free Church in Royal Leamington Spa. I came to saving faith in my early teens after hearing the Gospel preached at Stoneleigh International Bible Week. In 2002 I spent a year working as a youth and children’s worker for an evangelical Anglican Church in Birmingham before going on to study theology at Cliff College near Sheffield. I then spent eighteen months working as evangelism and church planting intern for the Methodist Connexion whilst candidating for ministry in the United Reformed Church. Now I am enjoying ministry and finding endless encouragement in the Gospel of God’s grace.

Matt Stone
I’m a minister in the Norwich Area United Reformed Church Team Ministry. I have particular responsibility for Ipswich Road URC in Norwich and Wroxham & Hoveton URC. I grew up in a Christian home and felt called into ministry at 18 whilst studying geography at University College London. I edit In GEAR, the magazine of the Group for Evangelism and Renewal in the URC, and I’m passionate about the church rediscovering God’s Word and growing more like Jesus.
