SRBC Begins

It was already established that the town’s Council had designated a corner plot on the estate for the building of a Non-Conformist Chapel, and their Minister, Rev. Wragg, felt it was God’s will for him to stake a claim on it. He purchased a wooden hut from the nearby RAF Camp (which was being closed down and dismantled) and had it erected on the Seymour Road site. A handful of adults from the main Church agreed to come and support this new work and the life of 'Seymour Road Baptist Church' began in earnest with around 200 children turning up every week!
