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.

This week there is a three minute video which you can view at https://youtu.be/uG-6xlUeqoM  Witard Road Baptist Church is some two miles from the city centre and has served its community for some 60 years. Its local area straddles two contrasting areas of Norwich: the Heartsease district which is on the 10% deprivation scale within the parishes of Norwich and the more affluent area of Thorpe St Andrew. In recent years the church has grown and a new building with more space for worship and community activities has been built alongside the old. The church’s Pastor is Steve Thomasson and the church is actively searching for an Assistant or Associate Pastor to particularly take leadership in the ministry to children and families as well as…

Not far from the centre of Ipswich you’ll find Stoke Green Baptist Church located in a post-war housing estate. The church — founded in 1757 — is the oldest Baptist church in Ipswich but now in more modern premises with flexible buildings dating from the 1950’s.

In all these projects they are working closely with other local churches.. Their main…

Wisbech is a Fenland town in the north-east tip of Cambridgeshire, bordering Norfolk and just a few miles south of Lincolnshire. The town is recognised for its horticulture and is a many-times Britain in Bloom award winner. Wisbech Baptist Church plays its part in flying the floral flag by joining in with the town’s annual Rose Fair flower festival. The minister is Revd Kevin Newton. Here’s a bold admission… a few years ago the church redoubled its efforts to reach out to the community when it became apparent that many people in the town thought that the building was unused, because whenever they saw it there was nothing going on. As a result the church launched Open Doors, which has now been running for eight…
