Welcome! We’re saving you a seat…

Thornhill Baptist Church is a community of ordinary people based in the heart of the Thornhill and Harefield areas of Southampton. Everyone is welcome: the old and the young; the got-it-together and the battered and bruised by life; the convinced Christian and the unsure explorer. Together we are getting to know God better and learning to love Him and our neighbours better too.

We’d love you to join us, we’re saving you a seat…

Penny’s story

God has been there all the time… keeping me going when I didn’t want to

I became a Christian in my teens and was baptised (at Dagnall Street Baptist Church, St Albans) in May 1965 aged 16.

Following my marriage to David W in the 1970’s, my regular attendance at church lapsed and my faith took a back seat.

On the birth of our daughter Elizabeth in 1979 I felt the need to return to church, so that Elizabeth could receive a Christian upbringing supported by the church family.  In view of what followed, I have always believed that God prompted me to go back to church at that time.

In 1984 when Elizabeth was 4, we as a family went on holiday to Cornwall.  On the second weekend of our holiday, while swimming from Porth Towan beach, David was caught in a strong rip current and drowned, while Elizabeth and I were playing on the beach.  A local surfer and his family supported us, and called the coastguard…
