About Us


New Addington Baptist Church is a member of Baptists Together and the Evangelical Alliance and we believe that the best decision we can make in life is to follow Jesus. 

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.
