Below are the people who make up the leadership team here at Nansen Road Baptist Church.  At the moment the church does not have a minister and so the church has a moderator to assist and advise the Elders and Deacons who form the leadership of the church.

The Leadership Team is elected by the members of the church to serve in this way.

Please take a look and find out a bit more about them.
