  • De Bethel Strict Baptist Chapel is een monumentale Strict Baptist-kapel tussen The Bars en de Martyr Road in de stad Guildford in Surrey. De kapel is gebouwd in 1910, wat zichtbaar is op een ingemetselde gedenksteen. De kerk is gebouwd op dezelfde plaats als haar voorganger in 1879. In 1878 verliet een groep mensen de Old Baptist Chapel in de Castle Street. Op 14 april 1879 werd een kerk geopend op de huidige locatie. De diensten in de kapel zijn niet veranderd sinds de opening.De kleine kapel kreeg in Guildford al snel de bijnaam de Tin Chapel. De gemeente groeide en in 1910 werd een nieuw gebouw geopend, dat in 1930 werd uitgebreid met een klaslokaal. Sindsdien is het gebouw niet meer veranderd. De eerste predikant van de gemeente was Jabez Wiltshire. Hij begon als predikant in de Zion Chapel te Trowbridge in april 1914 en nam in 1935 een beroep aan naar Guildford. Tot zijn dood in 1953 diende hij de gemeente. In de kerk is een gedenksteen aanwezig voor deze predikant. Van 1981 tot 1985 diende ds. P. Buss als tweede predikant de gemeente, sindsdien is ze vacant. Sinds de oprichting van de gemeente in 1878 heeft de familie Risbridger altijd een belangrijke rol gespeeld in het kerkelijk leven. In 2006 is een orgel geplaatst in de kerk.
  • Bethel Chapel, The Bars, Guildford, is a Strict Baptist Chapel affiliated to the Gospel Standard group of Strict & Particular Baptist churches. The Church was established in 1879 and the present building opened in 1910. Bethel still adheres to its original Articles of Faith and worship is conducted much as it was a century ago. The congregation started in 1878 when a few people left the Old Baptist Chapel in Castle Street, dissatisfied with the liturgy there. They hired the basement hall in the Ward Street Halls to hold services in, and on 14 April 1879, a Church was formed on the basis of the Gospel Standard Articles of Faith. A few months later the Church obtained a piece of land in nearby Martyr Road where they erected a temporary chapel built of corrugated iron and known as 'the Tin Chapel'. The name 'Bethel' was given to the building. Although several men who preached at the Tin Chapel were asked to become pastor, none of them accepted the call and the ministry was carried on by visiting preachers. By the early years of the 20th century the church felt the need for a more permanent building. Land was purchased in The Bars, the next road north, where a new chapel was built in red brick with round-headed windows outlined in grey brick. The new Bethel was opened in June 1910, Mr. J.K. Popham of Brighton and Mr. Calcott of Coventry preached at the opening services. The old building was taken over by the Railway Mission. Due to the enclosed nature of the site most light enters the chapel through a large dormer window above the front door. The whole building has a pleasing arts-and-crafts feeling about it. This building, with schoolroom, hall, vestry and toilets in a sympathetic extension added in 1930, is still in use. The original furnishings, pulpit, pews and so on are all still in place. Recently the dormer window in the front of the chapel has been repaired. The first pastor of the Bethel was Jabez Wiltshire. Born into a Christian home at Studley in Wiltshire, he was brought into concern for his soul early in life. After conversion he was baptised at Zion Chapel in Trowbridge in April 1914 and began to preach in 1917. In 1925 Mr. Wiltshire accepted a call to the pastorate at Bethel, expressing a desire to remain in his post until death. At last he died on June 12, 1953, at the age of sixty-one. He left four children. There is a small memorial to Mr. Wiltshire in the chapel. The second pastor at Bethel, Mr. P. Buss, served from 1981 to 1985. The Risbridger family have for a long time been associated with the Church at Bethel Chapel. The first Risbridger associated with Bethel was Solomon Risbridger, who began to attend Bethel in 1889. He was received into the Church in 1897. For many years he served as a deacon at Bethel, until his death on 12 January 1957. The Risbridger family are still associated with Bethel and Mr. Mark Risbridger is one of the deacons of the Church today. Although presently without a pastor, services are carried on at Bethel by means of visiting preachers. Until recently singing was unaccompanied and led by a deacon who used a pitch-pipe to set the pitch. Recently an organ has been introduced.
