Westminster Baptist Church: Missions Files

Archive Collection

Scope and Content

This collection includes information regarding the various missionary organisations supported by the church in the 1970s and 1980s. The pinnacle of its collection is a swathe of stamps, which were torn off of letters sent by missionaries and kept.

Administrative / Biographical History

The archival finding aid for this collection was first begun by Miss Platt in 2012. Miss Platt, who married Jonathan Arnold, continued as the Hon. Archivist from 2012. Jonathan Arnold became pastor at Westminster Baptist Church in April 2016

Conditions Governing Access

The archive is available without restriction to current members at Westminster Baptist Church. For external researchers, the archives are readily available - with supervised access - on any period for which no person involved in the content is still in living memory (i.e., records which are 100+ years of age). Any exceptions to this may be provided on a case-by-case basis.
