"The Manse"

It is important to us that our minister and her family live in a comfortable, warm, dry and safe house near to the church.

Our minister, Bren Brundritt, and her family has now moved into The Manse and we hope they will be happy and welcome in the Foots Cray and Sidcup Hill community.

Toy Service

On Sunday 25 November 2018, we held our annual "Toy Service" which included a presentation of the nativity by our Sunday Club.  A large collection of toys were donated by members of the congregation, which will be distributed by the Salvation Army, working with Bexley Council to needy families in our community.

Our minister-in-training, Brenda Brundritt was appointed as our full-time minister and was ordained on Saturday 22 September 2018.

The church was packed for this joyous occasion and we are grateful for those who came to speak and give support.  These included Revd Phil Barnard and Revd Carol Bostridge of the London Baptist Association, Revd Tony Green (Baldwyn's Park BC), Revd Simon Jones (Spurgeon's College) and our
preacher, Revd Eric Baldwin.Ordination 2

We enjoyed a good sing, led by Graeme Bentley and other musicians, and enjoyed a powerful solo by Revd Craig Downes (Albany Park BC)

We are grateful to all those who supported the event with the catering, stewarding, cleaning, and other practical tasks - including supervising car-parking in the rain.

We wish Bren and her family 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.


Church Heating

The heating system in the church has now been renovated with extra radiators and a new, larger boiler.  Our welcome is now certainly warmer!


Kitchen Renovation

Kitchen

During last 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!

Church Office

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.
