NEW TO CHURCH?
Welcome to Buckhurst Hill Baptist Church!
We are a lively, growing church in the heart of Buckhurst Hill.
BHBC seeks to encounter God, make disciples and transform the world.
We meet every Sunday morning at 10.30am and also at 6.30pm on the 3rd Sunday of the month.
We are a church for everyone, all the family and community. We would say, “Come as you are!”

When & where does the church meet?
The church meets every Sunday at 10.30am for our Sunday Morning Worship, which includes corporate worship, preaching of The Word and groups for children and youth. It helps to get there 10 minutes early to get a parking spot and seat in time for the service to start.
On the 3rd Sunday of the month, we also have evening worship called Inspire, where we seek to draw closer to God through extended worship.
We meet at the church building in Buckhurst Hill. The address is:
Buckhurst Hill Baptist
Church 28 Palmerston Road
Essex IG9 5LW
You can see a map on our contact page.
There is some parking available on the site and more on the roadside.
What to expect when I visit the church?
You can expect a warm welcome, great worship, impacting preach and a friendly bunch of people gathering to learn more about God.
Also tea, coffee and biscuits are available after the service!
What happens to the kids at church?
Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the service. The speaker will make it clear where and when children need to go to their programme.
We have a fantastic programme for the kids at church for ages 4-12. All children should be registered as you come into the church building and you may need to accompany smaller children to their room until they are settled. Children can expect to have fun playing games, and learn about God in a relevant way.
For babies and younger children, we have a creche where you can either stay with you children or leave them. The service is transmitted into the creche, so you can see and hear what is happening in the main service. However, this depends on what is actually happening in the creche on the day.
Is there a dress code?
No! Just wear something comfortable!
Will I be made to feel uncomfortable?
Not at all! We will be welcoming, and you will not be forced to do anything you are not comfortable doing. We want you to feel right at home and enjoy the service. Do join us for a drink after the service to get to know some people from the church.
I have more questions, how can I get in touch and ask them?
