Welcome to New Addington Baptist Church
We are a diverse community of people who want to explore and grow in faith in Jesus Christ together. We are called to follow Jesus in loving God, loving our neighbours and in sharing His Good News within the wider community.
We meet every Sunday at 11am for worship. All are welcome. We also meet online for services most weeks - you can find our services here and they are released at 10am on online Sundays - you can find more info here about our different kinds of services. All of our services have something for adults and children and we love to express our faith in lots of different ways. We are very excited about our new intergenerational all age service which is launching as we come out of lockdown.
We love our church and look to make it a place of security and trust as we seek to love like God loves us, offering a welcome that says that it is OK not to be OK.
Come as you are.
Our Community has a dedicated support line for anyone who needs help at this time that is here along with other info about support available in the community.

When Jesus was asked what the most important commandment was he said it was to love God and love others. This is what we commit to doing as we actively seek to share and care together in the community of New Addington. As followers of Jesus we have a great message to share and we show what God is like through our words and actions. As we share life with others, we endeavour to share something of the transformation that knowing Jesus has brought into our lives.
