Reformed Particular Baptist Fellowship Set to Close


I have just been notified to major changes on the Grou.ps platform which hosts our Reformed Particular Baptist Fellowship at:

http://grou.ps/particularbaptist/

Due to these changes which include a move to a subscription basis for our group to continue to exist as is, it looks likely that the fellowship will close. There will be a free option, however, that option includes an open membership (anyone can join, post anything – spam, etc, and all content will be open for anyone to see). It is looking likely that there will be no more community associated with particularbaptist.com.

We do however have a page on Facebook at:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/particularbaptistcom/248174206192

The problem with this page is that it also an open type of page, with anyone that ‘likes’ the page becoming a member of it – there is little way of moderating activity, etc. I think that particularbaptist.com will have to go back to an older way of doing things, with a forum, chat, etc – all on different platforms.

It seems that there are shake ups right across the World Wide Web on community type sites – even Google Groups are changing, making Google an impossible alternative also.

Latest Updates – 18 October 2010


With various hardware upgrades over the last few months (due to ‘dying’ hardware) I am now able to get back to work on updating, maintaining and growing the website. I am very thankful for being able to do so once again. There should be regular work on the site now – Lord willing.

Tonight I have been able to add some further updates to the Thomas Crosby book on the English Baptists. This includes adding a further 6 pages to the text now available online at:

I have also been able to add a further 2 Bible Studies on the Book of Genesis, which can be accessed via the website at:

As can be seen on the page, these studies are now hosted at Scribd and can be downloaded via the particularbaptist.com website or at Scribd.
