An update, a new chapter, spring 2021!
Eynsford Baptist Church has been part of village life since 1775 when it began in the home of a Mr Hodges, after which it moved to some stables in Priory Lane. The first building on its present site was constructed in 1806 and it was replaced by the present building in 1906. So, after several transformations, it is just 5 years away from being 250. And now it is time for yet more change.
Chris Moffett, retired having served the church faithfully for many good years, and the church is grateful to him. Chris came to the church in a moment of need, serving first as moderator, and then pastor. Chris’s teaching gifting has been a challenge to the church to more fully recognise who Jesus is and why that matters. Under his teaching the church has clearly grown in understanding of the Lord and in fellowship with one another. While EBC has been a small church it was a mammoth task that Chris stepped into in terms of leading, pastoring, and befriending. Chris and Olga will be missed by us. Their gracious presence in our lives has been more than we could have hoped. Thank you, you will always be dear friends to this church, and you move forward with our friendship, love, and appreciation!
The leadership and membership have come to the view that rather than seek a replacement for Chris, the church should amalgamate with another local Baptist Church just six miles away in Dartford.
The church, open from Easter Sunday 2021 (book your seat online at www.stonebaptist.com/book-online), is slowly changing gears. In the fulness of time there will be a return to; coffee mornings, monthly lunches and Advent Crafting in addition to many new initiatives and provision. Connecting with those beyond the current church community will be high on the agenda. So, watch this space!
We are so looking forward to welcoming back those that make use of our building, our regular hirers, whom we have missed in this season of distance. We are also excited to report that the church now has super fast internet! We hope this is as much of a blessing to you as it is to us!
The roadmap before us is clear, this too shall pass, and we will soon be reopening for much of what we have missed during lockdown. We as a church are looking forward to being back in the building. We are so grateful to have been a part of the village for as long as we have! We want to continue to build community, do more, and invite you to visit our church and even to consider it to be your church with us.
Meanwhile do feel free to explore the links on this site. There’s a variety of pages about us as a church family, our events and resources that we have found useful. We are expecting add more pages of interest over the coming weeks together with an indication of when services, activities and hirings will start-up again – so do return and see what we have to offer!
Hope, a new season, a cautious reopening. We are pleased to welcome you to book a seat for Easter Sunday via StoneBaptist.com/book-onlineContinue reading
