Who's who?

Our Pastor is Rev. Martin Knight

Martin grew up on a Dairy Farm in South Leicestershire and managed the family business before answering the call to full time ministry after 10 years as a youth leader at the village Baptist Church. He is married to Hilary; they have five children and at the last count 12 grandchildren. Martin says that he enjoys family life and see’s the Haven as his extended family.

Being born in Leicestershire and living there for forty years Martin is a loyal Leicester City supporter and lists watching football as one of his hobbies along with reading, listening to music, walking his dogs, cycling and caravanning .

While studying at Spurgeon’s College Martin was Student Assistant Minister at Kirby Muxloe Free Church. After being ordained he has ministered at Doncaster and Chalford Baptist Churches before moving to Derby. Martin is passionate about prayer and has been involved with a number of Ecumenical prayer initiatives during his ministry and has a desire to see the Gospel proclaimed and people being released into an exciting, vibrant relationship with the living God through Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit.

There are currently five Elders who work alongside Martin:

Maggie

Donald

Neil

Richard

Together Martin and the Elders seek to understand what God is saying to the church and help us to move into God's plans.

There is a team of co-ordinators who are responsible for many other areas of church life including Mission, Worship, Finance, Admin, Childrens Work, Home Groups, Pastoral Care, Maintenance and Safeguarding.

But at the end of the day, the Haven works as a team and everyone is invited to play their part in living out the love and grace of God and expressing that to one another and to our community.
