Baxter United Reformed Church

 

Awarded a grant to carry out urgent repairs to roofs, gutters and rainwater goods. If the work is not carried out a building of significant importance to the community of Kidderminster will be lost.

Baxter Church is at the heart of Kidderminster town centre in the Bull Ring and is situated within a conservation area. It is named after the influential Puritan preacher Richard Baxter. The church possesses Baxter's communion table. The current building was erected in 1884/85 and is the fourth building on the site. The building is in the early decorated Gothic style of concrete faced with red sandstone and Boxgrove Bath stone dressing, with a spire 140 feet tall. There are several stained glass windows showing Charity ministering to children and extracts from Baxter's book “Saints Everlasting Rest".

The church runs a wide range of community activities including a Trussell Trust Foodbank a job club, an older persons group and silver surfers internet café and provides advocacy and counselling for vulnerable people. The church hosts a community choir for all ages
