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 offer online content most weeks - you can find previous services here - sermons are recorded live and released afterwards on our YouTube channel - you can find more info here . All of our services have something for adults and children and we love to express our faith in lots of different ways. The first Sunday of the month we have an interactive all age service and normally have a meal afterwards.
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.
Although rules have relaxed, whilst COVID is still active in the community we would encourage you to isolate and ask you to not attend church activities if you have tested positive and/or show symptoms of COVID-19

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.
