Bishops Stortford Baptist Church is situated on Twyford Road, just by the River Stort. The Church relocated to this location in 2012, having moved from The Bishop’s Stortford High School in London Road, and prior to that, a building in Newtown Road which served the congregation for 101 years.
The current location features a contemporary, purpose built structure which accommodates the Church’s primary activities, as well as a second structure adjacent to the church, called the ‘Bridge Building’. Whitworth has recently completed the extensive refurbishment of this second structure, which was a former dilapidated industrial building.
The building now offers a welcoming foyer lounge, from which Church members and visitors can access a number of flexible-use spaces. These spaces can now accommodate a range of Church activities, including their very busy Exchange Facility, which offers practical support to those in need in the community.
In addition there are a number of small meeting rooms and a substantial hall to accommodate larger gatherings and youth activities.
These new facilities will complement the existing Church facilities next door, and enable the Church to widen their scope of activities on the site.
This building was formally opened on Saturday 21st January.
