WATTISHAM STRICT BAPTIST CHAPEL

One of the glories of my Calvinistic Baptist heritage are the various causes tucked away here and there in the UK countryside that speak of a love for the Scriptures, a love of our heritage of Baptist piety, and above a love for the Lord Jesus. The Highland Host at Free St. George’s pointed me to one such in his post, I am Preaching this Lord’s Day.

He is preaching at Wattisham Strict Baptist Chapel this coming Sunday—may the Lord powerfully bless His Word to both preacher and congregation—and highlights this report about the church (as he points out, remember the writer is a Roman Catholic):  http://www.suffolkchurches.co.uk/wattishambapt.htm. The church has its roots in the stirring days of the late eighteenth century.

Seeing the pictures and reading the report gave me a longing to be in the UK and visiting such a Bethel! I was actually supposed to fly over this weekend for about ten days, but the month of October exhausted me, and I regrettably had to cancel a couple of important engagements.

May the Lord richly own this congregation in Suffolk and exalt Christ, the only Saviour, through its verbal witness and lived-out testimony.

Thank you. We try to be a helpful resource.

Thanks, Dr. Haykin, for posting the information on Wattisham Chapel. The former minister there, Rev. Gordon Hawkins, was a dear, godly man. Wattisham Chapel is a wonderful place to be on a Lord's Day or for the prayer meeting. It has been my privilege to attend various meetings there and to preach there on occasions. A blessed place indeed.

There are those in England who are sorry you couldn't make it too. I (like others) had hoped to hear you at the John Owen Centre on the fathers. Nick Needham did well in your absence. See tradition and the fathers at my blog
