Thorpe-le-Soken is a small village in north-east Essex not far from Frinton-on-Sea. Thorpe-le-Soken Baptist Church was established in 1802 and the listed chapel building is set back from the road in its own grounds. It had a full refurbishment in 2005 making it more suited to today’s needs whilst retaining its character. The small fellowship of about 20 who meet each Sunday has been led for the past few years by retired minister Revd Steve Woolley who stepped down from that role in July. For a small church with a largely elderly membership there is a lot happening. There is a very popular “Jungle Club” Mums and tots group which meets every week and a monthly Messy church on a Wednesday afternoon with over 30…

Thaxted is an old market town situated in Essex roughly eight miles away from Stansted airport. The fellowship at Thaxted Baptist Church is a small committed group of around 20, mainly retired, members. Following the retirement of the previous pastor, the church has continued to develop its ministry. By building on the gifts of its members and with the support of visiting preachers, they continue to worship God and reach out to the local community.
