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.

Building the kingdonm of God
Our plans for next year’s services and activities are under the overall heading of ‘Building the Kingdom’.
The theme, launched at our first morning service in January and will shape what we do during the year.
Our first sermon series of the year will introduce us to some of the Old Testament characters whose lives were instrumental in shaping God’s chosen people, Israel. They still have much to teach us today.
We will also continue our prayer emphasis from 2017 with various prayer events and initiatives through the year. Look out for information on a creative prayer day and a 24/7 prayer event.
We also hope to run another ‘Change’ project so if you missed out on it in 2017, you will have another opportunity to be a part!
There will be plenty of fellowship events too!
Croydon Churches provide a shelter for the homeless through the winter months.
Selsdon Baptistoperates the shelter on Thursdays from 15th February to 22nd March
:We will need volunteers for jobs such as shopping, cleaning, cooking.
If you would like to be involved, more details on the notices page.
Do you know what Baptism is?
We had a baptism service on Sunday 18th March.. Read about it on our blog page
Are you interested in being baptised?
Would you like to explore the subject, before making a decision?
We are hoping to have a few very informal sessions talking about Baptism and sharing the teaching of Jesus on this subject.
If you would like to join us please speak to, phone or email our church secretary Theresa Nicholls and we will do all we can to arrange a suitable time - or contact the church office
Please Note: Attending these sessions does not commit you to being baptised.

As a church, we have created our own house group study guide.
This will be an eight week/session booklet which will encourage you and your house group. Together we want to consider what ‘Building the Kingdom’ could mean with
differing views on sharing the gospel, our call to the poor and needy and our
responsibilities in this fallen world.
The contributors are from different parts of our church body, all with passion and
gifts in the areas they will be leading us through in the study guide.
The hope is that from this study the house groups will be stirred to step further
into God’s mission for this world, and we will be offering an opportunity to do this!
On 9 June we will again be running a day of mission called ‘CHANGE’. This day will
have the same focuses as the study guide, and will be an opportunity to act
practically from the learning we have gained. We hope that all the church, the house groups and yourself can commit to taking part in the day and come and see where God is at work.
