Who’s Who - Ministry Team

Diane Watts - Minister (Team Leader)

Diane Watts

Diane joined us as an Associate Minister in September 2010 after spending time with us as a minister-in-training whilst studying at Spurgeon's College.

In June 2012 the church called Diane to become our new Ministry Team Leader, replacing our previous our previous Senior Minister, Mike Elcome, who retired the previous October.

Diane’s passion is to see effective community built where people are able to meet with God and know the potential they have within the kingdom of God.

Matt Forsyth - Spurgeons Student /Associate Minister from Sept 2016

Matt Forsyth first gave his life to Christ at the age of 14. After taking a year out to work as learning support assistant in a local college back in the East Midlands, Matt decided to attend Spurgeon's college to train for ministry in 2013.

Matt spent his first year in London working in a church plant in Shoreditch, then came to Selsdon Baptist church in September 2014 as a minister in training.

Matt has recently accepted the invitation from the church to become the associate minister starting in September 2016 after he graduates from college.

Matt's passion is to see both young and old come to know the Love of the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Matt is keen to explore how we "do church" in the 21st century so that passion can become a reality.

Matt also is engaged to Louise and loves all things sport and music especially football and the drums. Feel free to contact matt on:

Rob Chivers - Youth Work Placement

Rob first committed himself publicly to God when he was baptised at 14. He saw something different in choosing to walk with Jesus, it having a sense of purpose that he really needed. His real passion and understanding for living and serving with God came when he was 19 and started a 3 year course studying Discipleship and Music at Nexus Institute of Creative Arts, a faith based music institute in Coventry.

He has been serving in Selsdon Baptist Church in youth work and occasionally  kids work for many years, which he loves. It has taken him on many adventures such as missions to Ghana and summer activity holidays. As a church member he is also part of the worship bands and helps out with the youth band.

He is now studying Youth Work, Community and Practical Theology at CYM in Oxford. As part of the course he is working on placement here at Selsdon Baptist Church. He’s hoping to get really stuck in to the work and really help and disciple the young people at SBC, enabling them to go further than they thought was possible with God at their side.
