Nigel Manges appointed Regional Minister

The Revd Nigel Manges has been appointed as the new Regional Minister for the South West Baptist Association.


Nigel is an experienced minister who has led Cemetery Road Baptist Church in Sheffield since 2001.

One of his key responsibilities in his new role, which is part-funded by Home Mission, will be finding ways to support and encourage those of the SWBA churches who are without a pastor long-term.

A growing number of smaller churches are finding themselves in this position, and one of Nigel’s tasks will be to find strategic and creative ways in which the Association can help such fellowships not to slip into ‘maintenance mode’ but to have confidence, vision, and find ways of being an effective Christian presence in their community. 

‘Put simply,’ said SWBA in a statement, ‘in a rapidly changing world, we are looking to encourage our churches to become part of a missional movement.’

Regional Minister/Team Leader the Revd Jez Brown said, ‘I am delighted that Nigel has accepted the invitation to join the SWBA staff team.  He is a gifted and experienced minister who will offer much to our churches, our ministers and their families.’
