Geocache Description:

 

Yes, THE Abbey Road,
right opposite the studios where The Beatles recorded)


Abbey Road Baptist Abbey Road Baptist

1863
Abbey Road Baptist Church was founded in 1863 when Mr Stott, a preacher from Hyde Park, had a vision to build the Church and to create an environment for worship for the local community. The Church was the site where the Abbey National Building Society was formed.

1874
A Building Society was founded in 1874 which later became the Abbey National, which is now a national bank.

1962
In 1962 the Church was linked with The Abbey Christian School for the English Language formed by Pastor Barnard. The school was set up to teach English to missionaries and other church workers. It began with just a handful of students and grew steadily until it had up to 60-70 students each term from all around the world. On June 14th 2002 the school closed after serving the world for 40 years. After the closure of the school a youth group was started and is now a thriving fellowship of students from all over the globe.

1994
In 1994 our Pastor, Iain Batty and his wife Lucy joined the Church. Iain's remit was to continue evangelising the faith of the church, to galvanise the congregation and prepare Abbey Road Baptist Church for redevelopment and the challenges of the ministry in the new millennium.

2003
 Abbey Road Baptist Church took a visionary move to re-brand the Church. Both the Reverend Batty and Joe Lima were inspired to develop a new identity for the Church to ensure that a collective vision was shared throughout our congregation. Not only was a new logo developed – one that represents our famous location – but also a set of values and personality for the Church that could be communicated by everyone.

2004-2010
In 2004, Westminster City Planning Office gave permission for the long awaited redevelopment of the Church building. This restoration programme is designed to bring the Church back to its former glory and provide enhanced facilities to our local community.

From 2005 to 2010 extensive restoration, rebuilding and refurbishment work was carried out on our Church building
