Welcome to Buckhurst Hill Baptist Church!
We are a lively, growing church in the heart of Buckhurst Hill.
BHBC seeks to impact our world by building a Christ-centred church, connecting, transforming and empowering lives.
We meet every Sunday morning at 10.30am, as well as at 6.30pm on the 3rd Sunday of the month and 9am on the 1st Sunday of the month.
As of Easter Sunday (4th April) we are live in our Sanctuary once again! We are running our regular 10.30am service each week. We have a booking system in place for all wishing to attend our services at the Church together. Social distancing and other procedures are in place for these services, in accordance with government and Baptist Union guidelines. Click here if you’d like to apply to book with us. For those unable to join us in person, we are continuing to meet online for our 10.30am Sunday Morning Worship, streamed live from the Sanctuary. Go to YouTube and type in Buckhurst Hill Baptist Church. Prepare for Sunday by viewing and subscribing to our channel here.
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 ministries 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. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are continuing to meet online only for our 10.30 Sunday Morning Worship. Go to YouTube and type in Buckhurst Hill Baptist Church.

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. 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!
