Celebrating 300 Years!
The year 2021 will be remembered for many things. For the Rock Baptist Church, this year marked 300 years since the congregation first started meeting at its current location back in 1721. For our own congregation, we celebrated 40 years since we were first formed in 1981. Our two congregations have been meeting together at the Rock since August 2020. We are grateful that today, we are continuing to proclaim the same timeless Gospel message which was heard on these hills over 300 years ago!
All of this gave us plenty of reasons to celebrate and thank God for his continued work within Radnorshire.
“Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.” – Matthew 7:24
A weekend to remember!
Review from our weekend of celebration - 11/12th September 2021
Celebration Event - Saturday 11th September
We were delighted to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Rock Chapel and its place in the story of the Christian faith in Radnorshire on Saturday, 11th September. Our guest speaker Dr Gwyn Davies (Aberystwyth) gave a thoroughly interesting address showing how the ROCK demonstrates the continued Reign Of Christ the King here in Radnorshire.
Following the meeting, many enjoyed outdoor a cuppa tea and some cake while taking in the tremendous views of the surrounding countryside.
Gospel Service - Sunday 12th September
The following Sunday (12th September) we held a special family Gospel Service. Rory Johnson, one of our deacons, led the meeting and showed how important it was to build our lives upon the Rock which Jesus described in His Sermon on the Mount.
Following the service, many enjoyed a picnic on the grounds with remarkably calm weather and enjoyable fellowship.
All above meetings were carried out in line with appropriate Covid risk assessment measures.
