Baptist Church

Learning to Love God and Serve the Community

Our Vision

Selsdon Baptist Church is committed to:

Helping each other strive to know Jesus better and become more like Him

Encouraging, equipping and enabling all who come to the church to know Jesus better through prayer, Bible Study, worship, teaching and service.

Showing and sharing the love of Jesus Christ with the wider community, both locally and globally.

Growing a sense of community by meeting together and supporting each other.

In this way Selsdon Baptist Church aims to build a sacrificial and transformational community of disciples of Jesus Christ in Selsdon.

Youth Activities

We have a variety of activities for young people

We have dedicated Youth room, a great space to hang out and chat that is available for all young people.

Rock Solid is a high energy, fast moving club for 11-14 year olds, which explores, from a Christian perspective, life issues relevant to young people.

Gravity is a dynamic and upfront program for young people aged 14+, which includes challenging lifestyle teaching, chill-out space, creative expression in worship, and cell groups. We also believe in partnership with other churches in our mission to push out the gospel message.

Hot Chocolate on the High Street led by the Youth Minister - meeting young people on the street

Saturday 22nd April

A group from Selsdon Baptist Church have felt a call from God to do something, anything, to be a change. A change for the community, a change for ourselves, a change for the church. We are not sure if this day is the place we are supposed to be, but are sure we are moving and doing something. We would love you to get involved, to join us in trying something new.
Below are four areas we would like to try.

Random Act of Kindness
