The Revd Sarah Phillpot - pictured left - became our Pastor in 2016.

Sarah is currently on sabbatical until mid-July 2021.  You can get in touch with the Church and our leaders by using our contact us page

Sarah has previously lived in Surrey and south London and is loving the move to the west of the country. She was brought up in a non-Christian family and first encountered God in her teenage years. 

Sarah started attending her local church soon after and she and husband Peter were married there in 1984. They now have four grown-up children and one grandchild.

Sarah felt called to train in ministry as her children grew and she completed a degree at Spurgeon’s College. After six years as Associate Pastor in a Baptist church in Woking, Surrey, she explored what God might have for her in the future and felt called to Horfield Baptist Church.

Sarah is passionate to bring people into relationship with God by experiencing the love God has for them through Jesus and helping them to grow within his family.
