Who Are We?

Buckhurst Hill Baptist Church is a church for everyone; a place where people from all walks of life come together to discover what life with Jesus is all about. We gather to worship, pray and learn from the Bible and to serve with open hearts and hands.

What Do We Do?

If you are looking for a church, never been to church before or are just curious about God …. you are always welcome. Our Sunday service at 10:30 am caters for everyone with a mix of contemporary and more traditional worship music, inspirational Bible preaching and teaching with space to receive prayer. During the Sunday morning service, there are also activities for children and young people. You will find a warm and friendly welcome and refreshments after the service.

During the week we have a number of small groups, interest groups and age-related groups; everything from an art group to a senior citizens group, from a parents and tots group to youth groups, from social groups to house groups offering Bible study and prayer. A cafe, called The Lighthouse, is open for tea, coffee and lovely cakes during the week. Why not pop in and see what we are all about!?

Our Background

Buckhurst Hill Baptist Church is affiliated with the Baptist Union of Great Britain which represents 150,000 members throughout the UK. Baptist churches are found in almost every country in the world. As part of the worldwide Christian church, Baptists form one of the largest families of faith, alongside other trinitarian Christian traditions such as Anglicans, Methodists, Reformed.

Baptists are grass-roots people, with a particular emphasis on the local church. Baptists also play their part ecumenically through membership with Churches Together in England, Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI), Cytun (Churches Together in Wales), the Conference of European Churches and the World Council of Churches (WCC).

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. Ephesians chapter 3 verses 20-21
