Princes Risborough Baptist Church began life in 1707.
For over 300 years a group of the Lord's people, based at the site on Bell Street, have served God as disciples of Christ in this community.
Until his retirement on the 17th September 2017 the church was led by our Minister, Rev Richard Allwood and seven Deacons. We are until we choose our next minister supported by our moderator, Rev David Nash.
This Leadership Team is supported by a number of key committees who oversee different aspects of our work. These include Worship, Pastoral Care, Mission, Children and Youth, and Premises Management.
As we follow in the footsteps of those who have gone before us we express our commitment to Jesus Christ through our present Mission Statement and Core Values.
As we do so our trust and confidence is in the faithfulness of God who has kept and guided the fellowship through all these years.
