Minister: Rev. Sue Millar.
Sue came to Becontree Avenue in the autumn of 2011, taking responsibility for the pastoral care of the fellowship, outreach of the gospel to this community and of course the leading of Sunday services and mid week Prayer, Praise and Bible studies, all of which are supported by the Diaconate.
Born into a family with very little connection with church life, Sue was brought up in Romford. After her conversion in her early teens and finding and developing her gifts in her local Church, Sue went on to study at Spurgeonís College moving onto South Harrow Baptist Church where Sue stayed for about nineteen years before accepting God's call to serve in Dagenham.
As well as having a passion for sharing the Good News of the Gospel, Sue has a wide variety of interests. Sue says of herself "I value time spent with my friends and family and enjoy all aspects of being a dog owner including walking in the park or countryside. I like to read and draw when I get the opportunity. I also enjoy gardening, DIY, visiting the theatre and travel- sometimes camping when on holiday".
Sue can often be seen in the local park walking her pet dogs Meg and Penny both of which were adopted from dog rescue centres. Sue uses these opportunities to chat with other dog walkers and make herself accessible to those who live in the neigbourhood.
