|Church forges links
Baptists from Helmdon have twinned with the congregation of
an Italian Church.
The Helmdon congregation recently joined up with Towcester
Baptists to form the Tove Valley Baptist Fellowship.
The group has now forged links with Barletta Baptist Church
in the wine and oil producing region of Puglia. Two members
of the fellowship visited Barletta a fortnight ago and two
Italians came to Helmdon and Towcester last week.
Young people from the Italian church came to England to perform
music and drama last year. Further visits are expected.
This is believed to be the first twinning involving a church
in South Northamptonshire.
