         Rev John Layzell was brought up in a Christian home in south London and came to a personal faith in Jesus in his first term at the University of Keele in 1974.  At Keele John studied English and Greek Studies, graduating in 1978.

It was at Keele that he met his wife Judith, and they were married in 1981.  In 1987 they both felt called to Christian service and they went together to Moorlands college, graduating in 1989 with Diplomas in Pastoral Studies.  

John was approved for the Baptist ministry and studied at Spurgeon's college, obtaining a BD degree in 1994.  In 1995 he moved to his first church ministry in Winchmore Hill in north London.

In 2002 John moved to become the minister at Farnborough Baptist Church.

John and Judith have two adult sons.

Apart from his work in the church, John enjoys gardening on his fruitful allotment, spending time at the gym, skiing once a year and having summer holidays camping in the family's vintage trailer tent.
