What we believe and why

Revd Fiona Gill

Fiona was ordained into the Baptist ministry following a career teaching dancing and running her own dance school in Bexhill.

She is married  to Ian and they have married twins, Samantha and Christopher, and one grandson,

Isaac .

We base our beliefs on the Bible and we accept it as the final authority on matters of life and faith.

The Bible teaches, and we believe:

We think that this is the best news any person could ever receive, and we are committed to sharing it with our local community in whatever relevant ways we can.

More history...

The church moved into its present building in 1910. Rye Baptists originally met for the first time on 8th November 1750 in premises in Mermaid Street which they eventually bought for £60 in 1753 from  the Quakers (who had owned the building since 1701). The first Minister was Rev Charles Rodgers. You can read the text of a talk on the church’s fascinating early history by Rev Hedley Brown, the Minister in 1904, by downloading a pdf file here.
