Frank Gosden (1890-1980) was a Strict and Particular Baptist preacher. He was appointed the Pastor of Galeed Chapel, Brighton, England. In the March 1980 Issue of the Gospel Standard Magazine, tribute is given to Gosden upon the occasion of his death:
“With sorrow we record the passing of our two oldest and most highly esteemed ministers, Mr. Jesse Delves and Mr. F. L. Gosden. "They were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided." Mr. Delves died on January 16th, aged 88, and Mr. Gosden on January 19th, aged 89. For many years both had been pillars in the churches connected with the Gospel Standard. Mr. Jesse Delves was a sweet preacher of the Lord Jesus. As one old Lancashire minister put it: "Jesse Delves? There's nobody can preach Christ like him!" His great theme was the atonement. He was not favoured with a strong voice, but quietly he would set forth the glories of the Son of God and the wonders of redemption. In 1935 he was appointed pastor at Clapham, London, laying down his office in 1977 and having the joy of seeing one of his younger members appointed in his place. Mr. Frank Gosden's ministry was outstanding in two things. After hearing him preach, there was invariably a profound sense of the greatness and majesty of God; and also there was always something completely original, something you had never heard before. For many years he preached the evening sermon to a crowded congregation at our Annual Meetings, and on these occasions was specially favoured with gracious liberty. Many of these sermons left a deep impression. Mr. Gosden had been pastor at Galeed, Brighton, since 1958, and before that was pastor at Heathfield. Both Mr. Delves and Mr. Gosden were very kindly and humble men, and also men of much wisdom and grace. What they were, they were by the grace of God. Their counsel was of untold benefit in our denominational con- cerns. Now they are gone. An influence for good is removed and we are the poorer, not least in the loss of their prayers for Zion. "Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men."
