Attercliffe Baptist Church History up to 1912.


The Attercliffe Church next invites our attention. Its first meeting place was an auction room, which was rented by a few Baptists not directly connected with any one particular Church. In 1874, they built a schoolroom, and two years later were formed into a Church numbering thirty-six, with Rev. R. Ensoll as pastor. In 1883, a lecture hall was erected, and the fact that the youthful Church established mission stations at Woodhouse Hill, Swallownest, and Treeton, sufficiently testifies to the ardour of its workers.

Mr. Ensoll was followed by Rev. J. G. Williams (1887-1902), under whose ministry the present chapel was built and the entire cost quickly secured. Mr. Williams' ministry was terminated by his election to the important Secretaryship of the County Association. He was succeeded by Rev. W. Walker (1903-09), who removed to Lincoln. The church is at the present time busy with extensive alterations to its school premises, and is under the pastoral care of Rev. L. E. Smith.
