Description

Our church began meeting in a home of Christians in 1655, during the time of religious freedom and nonconformist expansion ushered in by the Commonwealth. They believed in independence from the state and practised believers’ baptism. However, from 1660, with the restoration of the monarchy, our people were persecuted by the Establishment, and had to meet in secret out of town to avoid arrest, fines or prison. Thankfully those days are long gone and we now aim to work in partnership with the other churches of our town.
