Anthony Orr (Minister)

Born in 1956 in south-west London.  He was challenged about the Christian faith at a Boys’ Brigade Camp at the age of 14, and later went forward at a Baptismal Service to commit his life to Christ. He worked as a junior school teacher in Islington, before being called to the Baptist Ministry. While training for the Baptist Ministry at Spurgeon’s college in London (1982-86), he met and subsequently married his wife, who is also an ordained Baptist Minister.

Anthony spent five years at his first church, Milton Baptist Church in Weston-Super-Mare.  Anthony’s second church was Worthing Baptist Church (1991-1998); then the family moved to Rugby (1998-2007). Rugby Baptist Church has grown spiritually, numerically and in community activities under Anthony’s ministry. Anthony was inducted into the ministry of Leamington Spa Baptist Church on 19th January 2008.

Anthony is keen on sport. He used to run for his County and still runs every day.

People in the congregation may choose to become Members of the church. Church Members through the church meetings and AGM are involved in many decisions made about the life of the church – everyone has the chance to have a say! It is the church members who have the right to choose how the church is run, how it spends its money. All positions are elected by the Church Membership. Members even choose the Minister.
