Newly redesigned in October 2018 - has more details, latest news and events

Any other information of interest:

2019 was our 150th Church Anniversary - celebration programme of events and projects took place

In 2018, our shoebox project enters its 15th year - first 10yrs were with Smile International, now with Link to Hope - we hand sort all our shoeboxes (880 last year) for the charity, handling 10,000+ shoeboxes in the previous 14 years. Started with one school, now most of Hitchin schools (inc. secondary) are involved - see website (link above) for more details.

We have been twinned with a Baptist Church in Israel since 2016 - Tura'an Baptist near Nazareth. Minister Andrew and other church members have made multiple visits to them.

We employ a Church Worker (church family pastoral support) and a Youth Worker (in conjunction with Phase Hitchin).
