CONISBROUGH: Conisbrough Baptist Church History up to 1912.


The Conisbro' cause originated in an offer of £100 to the "Sheffield District", by the late F. F. Smith, of Sheffield, towards the under-taking of work in the town. A first effort was made in the Board School, services being conducted by Sheffield ministers and laymen. From thence a removal was made to the Co-operative Hall, and a colporteur engaged. The present iron buildings were erected in 1903, largely through the generosity of Mr. R. H. Sharp. Its first minister was Rev. R. Martin (1898-1900), who was followed by Rev. W. S. Maxey (1901-06). Since then the services have been chiefly sustained by lay preachers, and for the last two years pastoral oversight has been given by the minister of the Doncaster Church.
