CHARLESTOWN: Charlestown Baptist Church History up to 1912.

Charlestown Baptist Church History up to 1912.


Although Charlestown was not formed into a separate Church till 1890, the Baptist work has been carried on there since 1855. In that year the premises were erected for Sunday school work, under the fostering care of the Bethel Church, Shipley. When the Church was formed in 1890, the roll of sixteen members was made up by transfers both from Bethel and Rosse Street Churches. The pulpit is now supplied in the main by Rawdon students under the over-sight of the Yorkshire Baptist Association. At Charlestown, as at several other places, the efflux of residents from Bradford gives promise of a flourishing cause in titre to come. It would seem, that before any great advance can be made, new and more convenient premises, in a better situation, must be erected. It can, however, be said that the outlook at Charlestown is more encouraging than it has been for years.
