Baptist Church

2nd of October 2007

From Jason Gain the new Pastor of Chipperfield Baptist Church:
As you read this my family and I should be rid of all the boxes, and have a place for everything and everything in its place. Well, hope does spring eternal!
However hard it is to move on � and it was � there is always an anticipation of good things ahead, and Chipperfield has exceeded our expectations by a mile. The welcome we have received, not only from our own congregation, but also from those that we have met within the village, has been a wonderful blessing, making us all feel at ease and at times well fed!
I wish to extend, on behalf of my family, the church, and myself that self same friendly welcome to all in Chipperfield; and please bear in mind that I am as curious about you all, as you may be about me.

The Festival of Flowers – held on August Bank Holiday weekend – was a resounding success, and we were delighted to see so many visitors who came to see the flower displays and enjoy a lunch or cream tea afterwards! Our flower arrangers created some very imaginative and beautiful displays to the glory of God – we are proud of them and really grateful for their help.
The church was full for our Songs of Praise service held on Sunday evening, when we were joined by a number of churches from the local area. Our Festival raised over �1000 for our funds, and we thank you all for your support.
Our new Pastor, Jason Gain, has arrived!  We are sure that you will soon get to know him, his wife Claire and their family, as they settle down to their new life among us in Chipperfield. There will be a report on Jason�s induction service in the next issue of Chipperfield News.
The Hemel Methodist singers are giving a concert on Saturday October 20th in the Baptist Church at 7pm. This concert is in celebration of the 170th anniversary of our church building that weekend. There will be refreshments afterwards, and you are all welcome to come along and join us. A special anniversary service will be held on Sunday October 21st at 10.30am, conducted by Rev, Andrew Cowley and we�ll be very pleased to welcome you.
