Oundle Baptists celebrate special anniversary  

Oundle Baptist Church, Northamptonshire, held a special service to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its formal establishment (Sunday 25 June)


A number of former members joined the present congregation in Oundle Primary School where the church meets each week for Sunday worship. The service was led by the current minister, the Revd Martin Hills, while the sermon was preached by the Revd Sam Griffiths. Sam, currently of Wellington Baptist Church in Somerset, was the first minister of the church.

Also participating in the service were Mrs Val Jones, the widow of the Revd Mike Jones the second minister, and the Revd John Singleton, who acted as interim minister between 2015 and 2016 and his wife Enid.

After the service a group of people who were present at the Service of Commitment in 1992 gathered to cut a special anniversary cake.


The church originated from a small group of people who had moved to the area from different parts of the country in the late 1980s and were seeking an evangelical fellowship.

The story of the founding of the church has been written in a short booklet entitled Living Streams which is available by email from the church (managerno.1@oundlebaptist.org.uk)
