SHEFFIELD: Sheffield Darnall Road Baptist Church History up to 1912.


Darnall Road Church, situated in a needy, industrial district, was commenced by several members who left the Attercliffe Church in 1894. At first these assembled in a mission room on Attercliffe Common. The present freehold site was secured in 1898, and a school-chapel, to accommodate 350 worshipers, was built. The work being attended with promise of success, Mr. E. Cawdron, of Rotherham, a devoted and enthusiastic layman, was invited to undertake the pastorate. For the last eleven years he has freely given his unstinted services to the cause. In 1904, new vestries were added; the site still awaits the building of school premises, to enable the present chapel to be used entirely for the public worship of the Church.
