News: John Fawcett Bi-centenary….

Posted on Monday, July 24, 2017

This year sees the 200th anniversary of  the death of Revd John Fawcett, Baptist theologian, pastor and hymn writer. Initially, he was minister at Wainsgate Chapel in Hebden Bridge Old Town, and later, when the congregation became too big for that chapel, they moved, first to Ebenezer Chapel in the centre of the town, and then to Hope Baptist Chapel.

A series of events is being organised to celebrate the life and legacy of this great man.

Wainsgate Chapel, Wainsgate Lane, Hebden Bridge HX7 8SU
Hope Chapel, New Road, Hebden Bridge, HX7 8EW
To get involved: secretary@hebdenbridgehistory.org.uk
