Our Leadership

Scott Little – Pastor

Scott is married to Justine and they have three young children, Aliyah, Caleb and Eliana with a little one on the way.  His family originally hail from the East End and he grew up in rural Norfolk, but the smoke of London eventually drew him back.  Scott worked as a chartered accountant for many years until he and Justine felt the call to serve, trained at Oak Hill College and moved to St John’s Wood Baptist Church in 2017.  The Littles enjoy the adrenaline rush of cycling in London, reading books and going on bear hunts around the house with their children!

Matt Hodson – Assistant Pastor

I grew up in the Garden of England (Kent), in Canterbury, surrounded by a lovely Christian family. It wasn’t until my mid-teens I realised I needed to make a personal commitment to Jesus and got baptised just before I went off to the University of York. I studied mathematics there for three years and it was over this time I seriously started following Jesus. God was very kind to me in these years – giving me strong Christian friends and a church which I could call family.

After university, I began working as a pastoral intern at Emmanuel Church Canterbury, where I stayed for three years. During this time I started to prayerfully explore full-time ministry, which led me on to the Cornhill training course in London for two days a week over two years. I love telling people about Jesus and wanted to be better equipped to do that, so I went to Oak Hill Theological College to study for three years.

At college I started attending St John’s Wood Road Baptist Church and have been here ever since.

I’m married to the lovely Rebecca and I enjoy playing all sport (especially football and hockey), reading, learning new languages and Thai red curry.
