This year marks the 50th anniversary of Brackley Baptist Church, so as a celebration we are making a pledge! We plan to host or gift 50 different events or actions within the community of Brackley during this year. These events will be an opportunity to join us in our celebrations as we give a little back to the town that has been home to us all these years.
The Church was created in 1970 by the families of several American service personnel from Croughton Airbase. Originally worshipping in Lower Heyford and then moving to Bicester, in 1984 the church finally settled in its current home (the old British Legion hall) here in Brackley . The Church has been here ever since, placed in the heart of the community and surrounded by an ever expanding town.
As part of our pledge we intend to offer 12 key events, one a month, throughout 2020; each will be an opportunity to join us in having fun. There will also be additional events open to the town; activities within and for the benefit of the town; and other smaller and more personal projects.
We will be raising funds at various events with all money being given back into the town through the Mayor's chosen charity - the new Cottage Hospital.
Wherever possible our events will be free of charge with an open invitation to join us. We will, throughout the year, be giving details of forthcoming events through social media and in the local press, or please visit our website and click on the link from the home page to learn more about our pledge and our plans for the year!
We hope you will join us throughout this year, in celebrating the town and the people within it.
