Ms Edith Kempson

Edith Kempson House (EKH) is named after the church’s longest serving member, who died in 1994 after living to the great age of 104. Miss Kempson (below) kindly left a legacy which the church used to purchase additional land alongside the former Chapel. The church decided to demolish its run-down chapel and use the land, as well as the newly purchased plot from Miss Kempson’s legacy, for the construction of social housing. Subsequently, an attractive complex containing eight flats and a community hall was constructed. The building work was undertaken by Riverside Housing Association, who owns the buildings, whilst the church owns the land. The flats and their tenants are managed by Homeless Oxfordshire. The community hall provides the location for Sunday services and regular weekly activities of Littlemore Baptist Church.
