SHEFFIELD: Sheffield New Whittington Baptist Church History up to 1912.


The cause at New Whittington is another evidence of the vitality of the Sheffield Church at Townhead. Rev. Chas. Larom's diary records that he gave an address on the laying of the foundation stone of the chapel at Whittington, in 1862. The new enterprise remained for fifteen years under the oversight of the mother Church at Townhead, but, in 1877, became a separate cause with Mr. Lewis as pastor. Memories of his life and service are still cherished with much affection. Since 1890, the pulpit has been regularly supplied by the Baptist lay preachers of the Sheffield District. Notwithstanding the growth of the village, the cause has made little progress during recent years, the present membership being thirty-two.
