Coronavirus (Covid-19)

See the Services section further down the page

Our ministry team are working from home, so the office telephone numbers no longer apply. Use the email addresses on the Contact Page. Please also feel free to comment or message us on our Facebook 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.

Instagram parables

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.

Zoom Sunday Group

This Sunday for young people in school age 7 to 14 we are going to gather on Zoom video conference App. We will aim to meet at 11:30 (just after live stream of service) for around 40 mins. This is a new experience for everyone but we hope through bringing them together we can encourage one another, enjoy some truths of who Jesus is and have some fun of course. If you would like your child to take part people message me on instagram or email me on

Zoom can be downloaded to any device via App Store or their website (meetings, scroll down to bottom). We are using the free version which enables 100 connections for 40 mins.

Baptist Church

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.
