Building work begins today

The day has finally arrived! The members of Didsbury Baptist Church have been raising funds and planning to remodel the church’s building for many years. Today the builders are scheduled to arrive on site and start the work that will open up all kinds of new possibilities for our ministry and mission.

Last week we cleared out the sanctuary so that building work can begin. Thank you to all our friends, especially Didsbury United Reformed Church, for storing our furniture and equipment.

An empty sanctuary

Last Sunday, we held our first service at Beaver Road Primary School. We will be meeting there every Sunday until our new sanctuary is completed.

First Sunday at Beaver Road School - almost ready

This Sunday Stephen Ibbotson will be our preacher at the school. If you do not already worship elsewhere or you are visiting Didsbury, you would be very welcome to join us on Sunday at 10.30 a.m.

The way we were

On Sunday 22 May we held a final service in our old sanctuary before closing it for refurbishment. During the service we showed slides of memories associated with the sanctuary over the years. Click on the photo below to view the images (pus a couple of extra ones).

Photos from our church weekend away

The first photos from our weekend away are in. These are by Anna and feature  Saturday evening’s home-made entertainment, earth hour and a few photos of (not quite) the whole group (can you work out who is missing? There is the photographer a certain one who arrived too late to get in the pic and someone who seems to be hiding behind Mavis). Enjoy!
