Married Curtis and his "inner circle" used "unorthodox" teachings to instill discipline and drive out evil spirits in both women and children who had come to him for help, it is said. His abuse of their trust continued as he moved "from one woman to another" and his confidence grew, Croydon Crown Court heard. Curtis, who left his role as a senior minister at the independent Baptist church in June , is faces 12 charges involving seven victims.
