Ishmael (Reverend Ian Smale) has been travelling around internationally in a ‘full time’ music capacity since 1970.

He has written and recorded over 400 songs (including Father God, I Wonder), released around 40 albums of his and other writer’s songs, having produced 15 of these.

We were delighted that he visited Foots Cray Baptist Church on Thursday 21 February 2019 for a Children’s Praise Party and his Sting in the Tale / Glorie Days Double Concert.

And he is coming back on Saturday 30 November 2019!  Please Contact Us if you would like news of tickets.

The World's Biggest Coffee Morning

On Friday 27 September we held a coffee morning to and raised £200 for Macmillan Cancer Support.  Actually ours started at 1pm.

Foots Cray Baptist Church is a very appropriate venue as Douglas Macmillan lived nearby in Knoll Road and buried his first wife in our churchyard.  Sadly the grave is unmarked.

Concert at Holy Redeemer, Lamorbey.

"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.
