Minister

Russell Braund

Russell joined the team at Emmanuel as minister at the beginning of August 2016. He was previously at Horley Baptist Church in Surrey, and prior to becoming a minister worked in primary education for 22 years as a teacher and then head teacher. During that time Russell and Wendy were members of Bessels Green Baptist Church, who recognised Russell’s call to ministry and sponsored him through college.

Russell and Wendy have been married for 36 years and have five children and seven grandchildren. Family is important to them both, so they spend quite a bit of time travelling on motorways or having family sleep-overs! They are also fans of Agatha Christie, Morse, Lewis and Endeavor.
