Welcome To Ex-Catholics For Christ


We are a father and son UK Bible-believing ministry, reaching out to Roman Catholics and others the world over, with the true gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. 


G. Patrick Battell was a devout and practicing Catholic for over 50 years until he realised the theology and teachings of Roman Catholicism was not found in the Bible. After hearing a New Zealand preacher speak about the end times and an American pastor clearly articulate the Biblical plan of salvation, he left the Catholic church, repented and received Jesus as his own Saviour and Lord. God soon began using Patrick as a distributor of Bible tracts, and even open-air street preaching. 


James was also raised and educated in Catholic schools, regularly went to mass and was a semi-professional big band singer at the time of Patrick's conversion. For three years, Patrick prayed for his son and shared the Biblical message of salvation by grace through faith in Christ alone. One day after much prayer and patience, James repented and received Christ as his own Lord and Saviour. James also left the Catholic church, gave up his world of music, and began his new walk and relationship with Jesus by reaching out to Catholics and others with his father Patrick. 


God is graciously blessing this father and son ministry, with people regularly coming to know Jesus.
