‘We are reviewing the l;atest guidance on the limited opening allowed for Churches.
SBC is regularly monitoring government and NHS advice regarding Coronavirus.
Most offline activities are suspended until further notice.. However we are planning to re-open SBC on a Sunday morning for viewings of our online services. We’re pleased to say that these Sunday gatherings will begin at 10:30am on Sunday 27 September. Those who wish to attend on that date will need to book a place in advance, by leaving a message on the Church Office answerphone on 020 8651 4308 by 12 noon on the preceding Thursday. Please state clearly your name and how many places you are booking. Priority will be given to those who cannot listen on the internet.
You can continue to keep in touch with SBC through this website, including audio recordings of our sermons which are found here, through the church’s YouTube channel, and social media including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Check the Services section further down this page.
We will be maintaining telephone contact with our older members, and will be using social media to maintain our spiritual togetherness - please watch this page and the Facebook page for details.
See the Services section further down the page.
If you go into isolation and need shopping or prescriptions collected or letters posted and don't have family or friends close by to do it, let Hilary Howard or Ruth Manson know as we have plans in place for volunteers to shop for our church family, either the weekly shop or odd forgotten or missing items.
In addition, if you are over 70 there is information on Facebook Operation Selsdon Support or call the Contact office (020 8651 4944) if you are a client or want to be, as they will be ringing round people who may need shopping to tide them over. They have a long list of people who they are prioritising who they will deliver a bag of essentials to.
If you are a family, couple or single and under 70 years and your situation has changed due to the Coronavirus and you are worried about getting enough food, please also let Hilary or Ruth know as we have information about what's available for you in the area.

SBC youth have an instagram account named ‘selsdon_baptist_youth’. As a way to connect with the young people we have started doing a short reflection on a parable each day. This we hope will encourage them, draw them to God and help them feel connected to the whole church.
We are now running a Sunday Youth Meet Up at the church from 6:00pm until 7:30pm. Click for booking

Under Covid Lockdown we have Zoom meetings for youth on Sunday and Midweek.
When things get back to normal, we have dedicated Youth room, a great space to hang out and chat that is available for all young people. We also hope to restart the following groups:
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.
Festival trips in the summer.

The Alpha Course is a wonderful opportunity to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed and informal setting.
Have you had questions lately about what life is all about? Have you wondered what, if any difference faith might make?
Join us for eight evenings, exploring the big questions of life and faith in a friendly and judgement-free environment. And all from the comfort of your sofa!
Usually, Alpha includes food, a talk and good conversation. During this time of social distancing, we can’t offer food – but the talk and good conversation still work well over video chat!
The course started recently and runs on zoom weekly.
