Measham Baptist Church News

Measham Baptist Church is a community minded church on Chapel Street (adjacent to Tesco).

There are many activities and services we run that may be of interest to people reading this.

We recently ran a well attended "Real Lives" event where notable celebrities came to tell their stories.

We are continuing this theme with a cafe church event at 4 pm on the last Sunday of the month. John Gaughan (gutarist and singer from Hermans Hermits) came in November. Maureen Greaves (who's husband was brutally killed on Christmas eve) came in December. On Jan 26th we have David Donegani, who will be talking about life bringing up a family, 2 of whom are severely disabled. On March 29th Alan Barnett is visiting. He was used as a human shield by Saddam Hussein's army during the Iraq conflict. More »
