Our minster in Training, Brenda Brundritt has been appointed as our full-time minister and will take up the post following her ordination on Saturday 22 September.
We wish Bren God's blessing and look forward to her ministry and leadership as we seek to fulfil our vision of worship and service in the community.
The heating system in the church has now been renovated with extra radiators and a new, larger boiler. Our welcome is now certainly warmer!
During the summer, we have undertaken a very thorough refurbishment of our kitchen, which will enhance our catering facilities. We have had to go without coffee after the morning services during August, but we believe it will be worth it!
Planning for the future
A lot of good ideas emerged during the consultations of the weekend of 2/3 September and we met on Wednesday 11 October 2017 at 7:45pm to develop these into a vision for the future of Foots Cray Baptist Church. This is now agreed.
Bunong New Testament
The Bunong people live in the forests of Cambodia near the Vietnam border. They have their own language and we have supported a Wycliffe/Bible Society project to bring them a New Testament and we are delighted that this was published in May 2016. We celebrated with them during our service on May 29th and sent our greetings. One of our members was able to attend the celebrations. Please contact us for further information.
We are delighted that the lead translators of the project visited us on Sunday 14 May 2017 as part of a visit to the UK.
We have started a new meeting, offering a chance to meet up for simply anything -chat, play games, do craft work, poetry, book reading, singing with tea/coffee & delicious homemade cakes
Pipe Organ refurbished
Our organ has been overhauled and the difference to the smooth running and sound is noticeable. Click here for more details about the instrument
To celebrate, we held a recital of light organ music on Saturday 22 April 2017.
Love in a Box
We have taken 33 smartly covered boxes from Foots Cray Baptist Church to the Mustard Seed Charity, who will send three lorry loads of gifts to Moldova in Eastern Europe to share among children in hospitals and orphanages, or living in very poor conditions. Please visit www.msrm.org.uk for more information.
Our part-time administrator normally works from 10am until noon on weekdays. She supports the minister and church officers generally, including lettings of our hall and rooms, and can be contacted on 07566 208117 or via contact us.
First World War
To commemorate the centenary of the WW1, we have added to our on-line document library the story of Fred Corke, one of our deacons, who was killed in action. His memorial can be found in the church. Please click here to visit our history page and a link to the document.
Foots Cray Baptist Church is keen to welcome children to our services and especially our Sunday Club. We want them to be happy and safe.
We have broadband installed, so visitors can use Wi-Fi on the premises.
