About Us

Information about our church.

Church Overview

We are located on the Addington Road in Selsdon.


We have weekly worship services on Sundays at 10:30 am and 6:30 pm. 


Sunday morning worship starts with the children and young people present and the first part of the service usually involves a talk or presentation aimed at the youngsters, although normally of interest to everyone. For the second part of the worship, the children go to Sunday club and the adults remain for in depth teaching and worship. The "Visitors Guide" page gives more information on what to expect at our services.


Sunday evening worship is more varied in format.

  • "The Four O'Clock Service" is a traditional service with an elder congregation in mind, followed by sandwiches and tea open to all. We also have a communion service with prayers for healing.
  • Some evening services are held in the smaller hall which allows a more relaxed and informal setting for smaller numbers.
  • We have had Labrynth services, where a there are a number of stations around the building with material for meditation on a theme.

Accessibility

Disabled people are welcome

Access

We are situated on a steep hill, and so our building has two levels. Both levels however have ramp access. The lower level includes the main worship area and the coffee lounge. The upper area includes halls and the church office. The two areas are connected by stairs internally, but by a sloping paved driveway externally. There are no stairs within each level, apart from the stage in the worship area. We have chairs rather than pews, which enables wheelchairs to be accommodated in the body of the church
Almost all doorways are wide allowing easy access.
Access is available from the road by a paved driveway and footpath. The slope is fairly steep up from Addington Road, and gentler down from Foxearth Road. Wheelchair users may need assistance from Addington Road. Roadside parking is usually available, although there are parking restrictions on Addington Road.
Public transport is in the form of bus 64 and 359, which both stop close by, and buses 412, 433, and 409 which all stop within a quarter mile. London Buses are wheelchair accessible - please check the Transport for London site
There is very limited parking and turning space on the driveway - please contact the Church Office (Tel: 020 8651 4308) for advice.

Our Ministry Team

Beth, Martin, Libby, Trevor

Rev Trevor Neill - Lead pastor

Trevor moved to Selsdon in August 2018, having previously served as Minister of Yardley Wood BC in South Birmingham and Associate Minister-in-Training at Catshill BC in Bromsgrove. Before training for ministry, at Bristol Baptist College, he worked for almost ten years in a variety of roles for the financial information provider Reuters.

Trevor believes that the local church is called by God to put the values of his kingdom on display: understanding the struggles and problems of our neighbours, offering them good news of how Jesus provides freedom and forgiveness, and creating a warm, welcoming and diverse community which gives a glimpse of God’s new creation in the here and now.

Trevor is married to Emma, with two teenage children, James and Hannah, 

Martin Wright - Youth Pastor

Martin Wright is our Youth Pastor, focusing on our work with teenagers.

Martin has had various youth ministry roles over the last seven years in and around the area of Leicestershire. He has recently finished his studies in youth, schools, community and practical theology with CYM, which has helped developed his understand and calling in youth ministry.

Martin wants to see and be part of God’s mission for the young people. He has a passion to help them develop to their full potential in all areas of life and become effective, empowered, Christ filled adults in the future.

She will also be doing a year’s study with CYM focusing on Children’s Ministry. It's an exciting (and a bit scary) time for her, but she hopes to test God’s calling on her life and grow more confident in her faith and herself.

She was baptised at her home church in July 2016 in front of her church and family.

Whilst she is at Selsdon Baptist, Beth will be studying a BA in Theology and Youth Ministry at St Mellitus College in London. She hopes this course will enable her to be prepared practically, theologically and spiritually for any challenges that may appear within her ministry. when working with young people .
