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.

Revd Iain Shaddick has been pastor since September 2018. The church has also appointed Daniel Goodwin as a part-time Youth and Children’s Worker: he spends the other half of his time as a chaplain in a local school.

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…

Located in the centre of the famous university city of Cambridge, St. Andrew’s Street Baptist Church (known as St. A’s) is open seven days a week. There is a busy café and lots of activities happening in the ‘Stoneyard Centre’, along with hosting a Christian language school. Street Pastors and a number of other community groups also use the facilities at St A’s. Jim East and Tim Clarke-Wood serve as ministers of the church. Jim was appointed as senior pastor five years ago. He also serves as the Baptist Chaplain to the University of Cambridge and as a Police chaplain. Tim and his family arrived, from Devon, in 2018.
