SHEFFIELD: Sheffield General Baptist Church History up to 1912.

SHEFFIELD, GENERAL BAPTIST CHURCH

It is to be regretted that more is not known of the General Baptist Church at Sheffield, which, in 1703, chose Edward Howard for its pastor. After many enquiries, I have been unable to trace the Lincolnshire Association Book which gives the account of the formation of this Church. Adam Taylor, in his "History of the General Baptists" (1818), says, "The first meeting in the Association Book, now before us, assembled July 16th, 1695." The loss of a book containing such early records is exceedingly unfortunate.
