Remembering Rev Leslie Jell

On 12th November, it was with sadness that we said farewell to one of our faithful members, now promoted to glory, the Rev Leslie Jell, or Les, as he was known to many of us. Les was closely associated with the setting up of Whaddon Way Church in West Bletchley, which was founded by Spurgeon’s…

.. and We’re Back!

Well, we were never really away, but this site has been down for a bit. Unfortunately we had to migrate servers and move WordPress installs at the beginning of November. Let’s just say it wasn’t straight forward and, as you’ll see, there are various bits and pieces that have yet to be correctly reconfigured. Please…

Don’t forget!

The clocks turn back by one hour at 2am on 30th October 2022. If you don’t have a device which changes automatically, set your clock/alarm back one hour before going to bed tonight so you don’t arrive super early to Morning Worship! You can find out more about why the clocks go back on the…
