“The Baptist Hall has a wooden floor and lots of chairs. It feel's worm and welcoming. I like my joyfull place because we do jumpy fun tings. We do lots of songs and play lots of fun games. It is not very peaceful. My favoite bit is messy Art and there is lots of brownies. We have diffrent groups and I am in the bouncy rabbit's.” Rachel - My Favourite Place: part of a geography project at Eynsham Primary School in summer 2007.

This image of Mr RR Alden is in a smaller room linking the church hall to to the church. Mr Alden and his family worked hard to ensure the future of the church. Apart from regularly preaching here, he would send any leftover meat from his shop in Oxford to the poor folk in Eynsham.
The hard work paid off and the church had a large Sunday School. The two halls were built and opened in 1910 to accommodate the large number of children.
The inscription reads: “In recognition of the long and generous service of Mr RR Alden as superintendent this portrait was presented by his fellow workers at the Eynsham Baptist Chapel January 23rd 1908”.
