We moved to Horsham almost three years ago into a bungalow we had fallen in love with, in which our daughter, son-in-law and our three grandsons had previously lived in.
As Christians, our move into Horsham and the bungalow, would not have been complete without us also having a new ‘spiritual home’ in which we could worship and feel completely at ease in. We believe, that just as God had led us to the bungalow, he also answered our prayers by leading us to Brighton Road Baptist Church.
It was on a lovely sunny September Sunday morning that we first walked into Brighton Road. What a loving and caring welcome we received from all those we met! The message was one of belonging – how appropriate was that for us. Two of our most favourite hymns ‘Great is Thy Faithfulness’ and ‘O Lord my God’ were both sung at this service. By the end of the service, we just knew we had found our new spiritual home.
We have been there ever since and know that God has truly provided us with a place where great fellowship, learning, love, peace and care are available to all.
As part of our involvement at Brighton Road, we are part of the church’s welcome team which we thoroughly enjoy doing and have been truly blessed in so many ways in being able to welcome new folk into their first walk into Brighton Road as well as the regulars. We are also part of a regular bible study group and in addition we are regular contributors to the in house monthly Prayer Diary. These ‘involvements’ as well as our regular church attendance have given us a true completeness in our move to Horsham.
