The History of West End Baptist Church: The First 180 years

Compiled by Mr Philip Payne, aided by Miss Joan Barber, Miss Janet Mead and Rev Graham Warmington

Joan Barber, Deacon for 47 years, spent many hours researching the contents of numerous minute books of Deacons and Church Meetings and passing these details to Phil Payne to publish. Miss Janet Mead has assisted by providing the details for the more recent years by again researching Deacon and Church Meeting minutes. Additional information has been obtained by visits to the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre (formally Wiltshire Records Office) and various web sites by Rev Graham Warmington. Rev Warmington also collected and cleaned up many of the photographs included in this section.

Thanks are given to all those involved in the research and those who have found old photographs for inclusion into this history of our Church.
