MARSHFIELD: Marshfield Baptist Church History up to 1912.

MARSHFIELD BAPTIST CHURCH

On March 1st, 1891, thirty-seven members from the Ebenezer Church formed themselves into a new Baptist Community, meeting for worship in a small room in Ripley Street. Two years later the school-chapel at Marshfield was erected. The Rev. George Edmondson, who laboured from 1891 to 1900, was the first pastor. The Church at Marshfield, and Baptists of the district generally, are greatly indebted to Mr. Richard Rudd, who for several years occupied the position of lay pastor and rendered notable service by earnest preaching, and other ministrations. An attempt is being made at the present time to reunite the Churches at Ripley Street and Marshfield with a view to building a more commodious edifice in a better situation than either place occupies at the present time. In the interests of the denomination it is devoutly to be hoped this consummation will be attained.
