OSSETT: Ossett Central Baptist Church History up to 1912.

Ossett Central Baptist Church History up to 1912.


The Central Church at Ossett is an outgrowth from the Church at Ossett South. On January 25th, 1894, a meeting was held at the house of Mr. Jonas Glover to consider the advisability of commencing a new cause in this part of the town, and in the following June, services were begun in the Co-operative Hall. The Church was constituted on January 14th, 1895, with nineteen members. In 1898, it reported the completion of a new school-chapel with nine classrooms and a lecture hall, since which time a caretaker's house has been added, and additional land purchased. The Central Church united with the mother Church in the pastorate of Rev. T. R. Lewis (1906-8), and still continues in this unity under the ministry of Rev. T. Cotes. It is anticipating the building of a new chapel, in the near future.
