So, there we are – 100 years of faithful work and witness. A firm foundation laid down on which to build over the subsequent years. As we look back we have much to be thankful to God about, especially as we consider the lives of men and women who so faithfully gave of their time and talents to serve God in and through Red Hill. People like Miss James, Edward French, Frank Wheeler, Henry and Alice Dolloway, George Collins, Stan Giles, Phyllis Hill. They and many others kept the work going in the good years and the more difficult times. Their faithfulness, dedication and perseverance are an example and inspiration to those of us who follow on. They are surely now rejoicing with us as they see the way the church has grown and developed since their day – more especially as we enter into this exciting and challenging new phase of our life together as Red Hill becomes St Peter’s Baptist Church.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.”
Hebrews 12 vs1/2
