Norma Buckpitt

Norma Buckpitt has been a resident of Farifield since 1955. She has been involved in many aspects of the Baptist ministry in the Fairfield area including Christian Endeavour and youth work.

Mr Coleman was our first Pastor and he stayed with - he worked very hard at getting people interested and advertising the church and just gathering people together. Visiting people all the time. He worked very hard to get the church established. We had Sunday School - we were involved in the Sunday School - and we also established Christian Endeavour - well we had established that before we combined. So the work grew slowly, slowly. In 1985 we had enough people to form a church, so we officially became the Parkside Baptist Church in 1985.
