Fakenham Baptists plan to move and expand
The Baptist church in Fakenham has become so popular that the current premises are too small, and plans are being submitted to move the church north of the town.
Their existing building on Mill Court,
which was built in 1801 and expanded with a new building some 20 years ago, is within a conservation area and one of the oldest areas in the centre of Fakenham
. Plans are being made to sell this for housing and build a brand new worship centre off Clipbush Lane
, near The Running Horse pub.
A plot has been purchased, and a planning application is to be submitted to North Norfolk District Council for the new premises (pictured above
, senior pastor at Fakenham Community Baptist Church
, said the church needs to move to a bigger premises due to its increasing popularity. “We get more than 150 people at the church on Sundays, coming in from 29 villages, and this building is just far too small for us. We hold many popular community activities here and this move will enable us to do more of this.”
