Lay Preacher in Baptist Church
1827 joined the Baptist Chucrch at Rayleigh, under the pastorship of James Pilkington. His cababilities as a preacher were observed and became authorised to preach. He did this frequently in local villages. Much of this was in Horndon and in 1841, when a small church was formed, he became Pastor. In March 1849 he was called to preach at Aldringham in Suffolk and continued until April 1851 when he was ordained their pastor. He remained until 1861 when he removed to Bungay. There he remained until his death in 1884, resigning his pastorate only three days before his death at the age of 82
1851 ? extract from:-
The Gospel herald; or, Poor Christian's magazine p 142 1851?
"On Tuesday, April 22nd, Mr Joseph Brand, (late of Hundon (sic) on the Hill, Essex) was publicly recognized as pastor of the Baptist church meeting at Aldringham, Suffolk.
The service was commneced in the morning with Mr C. Hill, of Stoke Ashh, who read the Scriptures and prayed. Mr G. Wright then preached from Galatians vi. 10: 'The household of Faith'. Mr Collins asked the questions; the leadings of Providence were read by Mr Studd; and a clear and very satisfactory statement given by Mr Brand, of the Lord's gracious dealings with him, his call to the ministry, and articles of his faith. Mr Runnicles commended Mr Brand to God in prayer, and earnestly pleaded fro his future success. In the afternoon, Mr Wright prayed, and Mr Totman addressed Mr Brand from the 1 Timothy iv, 16. After which, Mr Collins delivered an address to the church from 2 Corinthians xiii,11: 'Live in peace and the God of love and peace shall be with you'. Brother Sewell, the deacon, and other brethren read the hymns. Aldringham, bless the Lord, again resembles a field the Lord have blessed. We are reminded of former times. The friends all looked happy; the Lord's presence crowned the day; and all exclaimed 'It is good to be here'. Brother Brand has a fine field of labour; may he long occupy it with great pleasure and success!"
The joint meetings that had been going on since 1965 between Faith and the church at Aldringham, resulted in negotiations between them and the Association Executive about closer ties. On 6th July 1972 it was agreed that both churches would unite for worship for six months. The end result of this was that on 1st January 1973 the membership of both Churches was disbanded, and a new Church was formed as Leiston Baptist Church under the pastorate of Pastor Percy Marjoram.
