Weekly Prayer Focus

Each week the Eastern Baptist Association will produce a Weekly Prayer Focus for a different member church across the region. We hope you will be able to use the article and accompanying PowerPoint and PDF to encourage you and your churches in prayers for others in the association.

Nansen Road Baptist Church in Ipswich is tucked away in a council housing estate and home to the warm hearted and faithful. The pastor Revd Peterson Roy Anand endeavours for the church to be rooted in the Word of God, have a closer relationship with God and have a Holy Spirit filled church. In the last few years the church has seen some graceful yet major changes, such as a church that is developing to be more diverse in age and nationality. He is also ushering in more contemporary worship with a new church band and music. Recently the church encountered a sad event that happened in the community (the death of a teenage boy, gang related knife crime) which was covered by the local…

Colchester in Essex is the fastest-growing town in the country, and a neighbourhood known as Myland is the fastest-growing area of Colchester where New Growth Ministries sprouted in April 2017. Sprouted is the right word, too, because Forest Church, where people can get out, enjoy God’s creation and explore Bible stories in inspiring settings, is a key part of worship. Revd Lynsey Heslegrave, previously at Colchester Baptist Church, set things in motion with the aim of responding to the exact needs of the people God sent her way – and it quickly became apparent that a traditional church filled with rotas and ‘do’ lists wasn’t going to work. Alongside Forest Church, Film and Faith is another area of growth. It takes place on two Fridays…

Mill Road boasts a strong sense of community, with its unique character as home to small shops, ethnic food stores and restaurants, reflecting the multi-cultural population of the area. After five years without a minister the fellowship were joined, in January this year, by their current pastor Revd Gilson Gwendu. With an average Sunday attendance of about 30 people of mixed ages, Mill Road Baptist Church has a vision to reach out to the community around it. As Mill Road Baptist Church is in an area surrounded by shops and small businesses, Revd Gwendu is exploring and engaging with workplace chaplaincy. The Community Hall is being used…

Maldon is an ancient Essex town, with its oldest part sitting high on a hill overlooking the River Blackwater estuary and harbour. And it is home to Maldon Sea Salt, produced here. Maldon Baptist Church dates back almost 150 years and the present chapel was opened in 1897. The church is few in number and has a small and ageing congregation. The minister Revd Jo Stark sadly passed away in April this year after a long battle with cancer. Since then another key member has died so there is a keen sense of loss in the fellowship. The church is grateful for its current moderator, Revd Michael Child, who is pastor at nearby Witham Baptist Church. Maldon is served by a pool of regular speakers…
