Previous Ministers

Much of this research was carried out by Kevin Brown (now Revd K Brown) in anticipation of the church's centenary celebrations in 2001. It links our first hundred years to the biographies of the ministers who led us and to statisical information from the annual Baptist Union Handbooks of the period.

For a more social view, consult the RH Diamond Jubilee Handbook (1961).
