Martin Hatfield (Minister)
Martin grew up in Hampshire and met his wife Poppy (a GP) while training to be a drama teacher in Cardiff. They settled there and had their first of three children (all boys) before moving to Godstone in Surrey. Whilst in Surrey, Martin felt God call him to Baptist Ministry and he trained at Spurgeon's College.
Martin is committed to Christian work, not just across denominations but across different faiths as well and he is passionate to the point of obsession on matters of inclusion. He is not very sporty but enjoys complex boardgames, science fiction, fantasy and comic books.
