Faith and Worship

 

As a Christian Church our faith is at the centre of everything we do and is the reason why we are who we are. We welcome everyone, wherever you are on your faith journey to join with us as we explore what it means to serve and follow Jesus. If you would like to find out more about the Christian faith or want someone to talk to or pray with please contact us or find out more here

You can find more details about faith and worship on our worship page

If you would like to speak to the minister or a member of the leadership team please get in touch. We offer a listening ear and we believe prayer makes a difference.

We are so thankful for the organisations that have helped fund our work in the community throughout the pandemic and also for the recovery work we are doing. 

As well as those pictured below, we are also grateful to generous individuals in the local community, Croydon Whitgift Rotary Club, Arnold Clark and the New Addington Salvation Army Vine Foodbank. We also give thanks to our Baptist Family, The Ros Harding Trust and the Baptist Building Fund who funded some necessary building repairs and improvements and enabled us to keep on working throughout the pandemic and the Particular Baptist Fund who have helped us purchase necessary equipment.
