They have a long list of people who they are prioritising who they will deliver a bag of essentials to.

Instagram parables

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.

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.

Living as Citizens of God's Community

Autumn 2020

New sermon series for the Autumn

t’s a scenario which many of us will have experienced at one point or another, a church with two opposing groups lining up against each other, each with a presumed, if unspoken, sense of superiority over the other. However, the congregation in question isn’t one located in Croydon in 2020, but Rome in the mid-50s AD.

Our series on Romans will begin on Sunday 6 September, when we’ll take time to reflect on the letter’s final chapter. This might seem like a strange place to start, but there’s a logic to the approach which we’re taking. If we begin by exploring the divisions between the strong and the weak which Paul speaks of in chapters 14 to 15, we will then be better placed to properly understand the deeper theology found at the beginning of the book.
