The Baptists in Perry have over the years had links with other Churches in the villages around.
In January 1983 Perry along with the Baptist Churches in Buckden, Gt Staughton and Offord Darcy, joined together to form Trinity Village Baptist Church. There was also a link with and help from Trinity Free Church in Huntingdon.
Sadly by 1984 the Church building having become unsafe had to be demolished. For several years the Church met in various places a cowshed, the prison officers’ social club and the manse.
Then in 1990 the present building, built at a cost of £110,000, was opened. This was not without some controversy as graves had to be relocated.
The opening service on Saturday 1st September 1990 included thanksgiving, dedication, with Rev D Harper – Area Superintendant and Rev Tony Matthews from Bristol (formerly of Huntingdon) preaching.
At the time, the Church had two Lay Pastors one of whom is now a Church of England Vicar and I have included with permission a link to his blog.
Sadly, with the closing of the Church in Offord Darcy in March 2015 Perry is the only remaining Trinity Village Baptist Church. We do, however, try to keep a presence in the other villages.
