Click the link Samuel Rutherford (1600-1661) to read a new article by Chris Clarke, a Deacon at Crich Baptist Church. Samuel Rutherford, was a Scottish Presbyterian pastor at his beloved Anwoth, a parish in Kirkudbrightshire, Scotland. Although more well-known because of his series of letters, there is much more to this Godly man’s life, and Chris Clarke tells us of his contributions to the cause of Christ, and the battles he faced for the things he held dear.

Congregational Hymn Singing
Some time ago I came across a Youtube Channel authored by Martijn De Groot, a Dutch Calvinist. Martijn’s site contains congregational singing of hymns from The Metropolitan Tabernacle (London), Grace Community Church (Sun Valley, California) and Westminster Chapel (London) during the pastorate of Martyn Lloyd-Jones. As we do not record the hymn singing of our hymns at Crich Baptist Church, we offer this video, partly as an introduction to what Martijn has available, but also to show the type of hymns that we also sing.

John Foxe (1517-1587) was born in Boston, Lincolnshire in 1517. He never rose to occupy high office within the Church of England, but the incomparable literary work for which he is most well-known, and for which he will forever be remembered was as the chronicler of the Christian martyrs from the earliest times. Originally titled by him as “Actes and Monuments of these Latter and Perillous Days, Touching Matters of the Church”, it is more usually referred to today as “Foxe’s Book of Martyrs”.
The expansive original comprised a large number of volumes, detailing as it did the martyrdom of many early Christians, as well as giving an account of important figures such as John Wycliffe, the morning star of the Reformation, the life and story of the ‘True Servant and Martyr of God, William Tyndale, the trial, condemnation, and martyrdoms of Ridley and Latimer, Thomas Cranmer, plus accounts of many, many more less well-known Christian folk who suffered at the hands of the Catholic Queen, often referred to as Bloody Mary. She, it was who condemned hundreds of people to death, principally going to their early end by being burnt at the stake, simply for being Protestant and refusing to recant their firmly held beliefs.
Dr Needham, in this address, gives us a brief sketch of John Foxe’s life and also provides a few examples of those who gave up their lives, becoming martyrs, for Christ’s sake.
