350th Anniversary Celebrations - More correspondence

Just a little reminder of the wonderful eight days of celebration we enjoyed on our 350th Church Anniversary, and a few appreciative letters from some of our many guests


It was great to be present for your anniversary celebrations yesterday, both the service and the lunch. We enjoyed both, including meeting folk from Tilehouse Street and further afield. Please pass on our thanks to all and every blessing as the celebrations continue.
Liz and Stephen Heap.

Dear Peter,
Thank-you for the information regarding the anniversary celebrations - sounds like a full week of activities. We will be thinking of you all. We especially are looking forward to the updated Come Wind, come weather.

Every blessing and regards to Joyce.
Margaret and Roy Deller.

Dear Peter,
It was a great pleasure for us to return to THS for the weekend and to meet so many 'old' friends. We greatly enjoyed the concert and were pleased that your work in relation to it was acknowledged. We found the service inspiring and the lunch up to the usual THS standard.

Please convey our thanks to all who made such a great weekend possible. Please find enclosed £5 for a copy of the booklet which we look forward to receiving - and reading! Warmest best wishes to you, Joyce, and all at THS.
John and Gill Matthews.

Dear Jane,
Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to everyone involved in organising the Celebration Quiz on Saturday. We all had a lot of fun and were grateful to the quiz masters for being quite kind!

We hope all the other birthday events go as smoothly and that such a big birthday is suitably celebrated!

Thank-you again,
from everyone at Tilehouse Street Preschool and Nursery.

On behalf of myself, my husband and my aunt I would like to thank you for the invitation to join Tilehouse Street Baptist Church during their 350th Anniversary Celebrations. Unfortunately we will be unable to attend any of the planned events but we wish you all a most enjoyable Celebratory Week and our thoughts will be with you as our family ties with Tilehouse Street cover a great many years.

Yours sincerely,
Janet Masters-Boorman.

Dear Peter,
Thank-you for sending me the details of the 350th Anniversary Celebrations of Tilehouse Street Baptist Church. I would dearly loved to attend, but unfortunately I have family commitments that prevent me from coming. I well remember the 300th celebrations when we had an Evening Dinner in the Town Hall. I was asked to write the report for the Baptist Times! My family had long connections with Tilehouse Street and I have many happy memories. Please convey my best wishes and love to all over the celebrations.

God's Blessings with you all,
Margaret McKay (King's Lynn)

Dear Peter,
Unfortunately did not manage to meet up with you during our visit - many people and lots going on!! But we do thank you for the invite and it was an opportunity for us to see how Tilehouse Street BC has flourished over the years. Please thank all those whose efforts in organising and preparing made the day we spent seem effortless!

Janette Westell seems to have recovered from her unfortunate accident, but had to miss out on the excellent celebratory meal after the Sunday Service. It made our stay with them quite an eventful one, but we are so glad that all seems to be well now. We know that Ralph will be well relieved about it.

We were able take a number of telephone calls during the Sunday evening and relay to a number of anxious friends the messages we had from Ralph during their hospital visit. Thank you again, and our best wishes to everyone at Tilehouse Street.
Ros and Peter Haigh.

Dear Tilehouse Street Baptist Church,In this year of special anniversaries of churches in Hitchin, congratulations on this extra-special celebration of 350 years. I'm sorry not to be able to join you for any of your events but do send my very best wishes, along with my continued prayers for the next chapters of church life. 'For all that has been - thanks! For all that is to come - yes!"

With love from

Geoff Colmer.
