Ecclesiastes 3.3b

“a time to tear down and a time to build.” (NIV)

The Baptist chapel in Hugglescote, Leics, was built in 1875, the fourth building to be constructed by a congregation dating back to c. 1749 and which became an independent church (from Barton in the Beans) in 1798. The premises were closed in 2005 as they were beyond economic repair and the congregation moved to worship in the local primary school. In 2009 the premises were finally sold, demolished and building began to construct new homes for a local housing association.

The final service in the building was on Saturday 18th June 2005, demolition completed on Friday 19th June 2009.
The congregation continues to meet in Hugglescote Primary school and is very active in mission in the local community.
