Looking back to 2016, with thanks:
First: an excellent weekend of celebrations for the churches 60th anniversary in October, with Dr Steve Brady.
Second: The four Baptist Churches in Hartlepool had a really good Christmas Meal and Family Outreach, with John Archer, at the beginning of December.
Praise God with us for what has been.
Looking forward prayerfully to 2017:
First, we need to do an unexpected major repair to the church roof.
Second: The leaders of the four Baptist Churches in the town have a meeting at the end of January, with John Claydon, to discuss how we might continue to work together in the town to support each church in ministry and mission.
