New Deacons for 2021 - Kathryn Kane 

Kathryn writes:
It was during a service at Southwark Cathedral when I was fifteen years old, that I had a life-changing experience of my own sinfulness and God's forgiveness and amazing love for me. From that time on I knew that I wanted to be a follower of Jesus.

I met my husband, Rob, while we were studying at Elim Bible College. We began married life pastoring churches, firstly in Pontarddulais, where our eldest daughter, Lauren, was born, then in Great Yarmouth where Stephanie was born; we were briefly in Romford and finally in Smethwick.

During our time in Smethwick I did a degree in Religious Studies and gained my teaching qualification. We then felt led back to Croydon, where I became Head of RE at Archbishop Tenison's and then went on to work for the Diocese of London as a Secondary school RE, collective worship and chaplaincy adviser and with churches that want to be involved in school mission.

At the time of the move to Croydon we did not realise that Rob had MS but with hindsight we can see how God was looking after us and guiding our steps. We decided to try out SBC just after Christmas almost two years ago. I had really liked the church website and we were made to feel very welcome.

It has been good to get to know the church family and I have enjoyed cooking for Alpha, working with the group to think about how our building could be used and sharing from God's Word.

I am excited seeing how God is at work in SBC and want to serve him, his church and the community here.

Planning your Visit


We’re glad you've chosen to have a look at our website, and hope you’re interested to find out more about Selsdon Baptist Church.

A church is primarily about people, and we are a friendly group of people who love God and live in Selsdon and nearby.

We have a church building on Addington Road, Selsdon, but at the moment we have only very limited use of the building because of the Covid pandemic. But that doesn’t stop us worshipping God – only we have to do it over Zoom and YouTube!

Most of us watch together at the same time (10 30am) on Sunday, and then join to chat and discuss on Zoom just afterwards.
We’d be delighted for you to join our YouTube worship, listen to the midweek reflections on YouTube, listen to the Ask the Ministers Podcast, or join the Zoom meeting.

Depending on the current restrictions level, there is the opportunity to join us to watch the YouTube service in the church building itself – check the service details for each Sunday for instructions.

If you’d like to find out more about us and about our Christian faith, please browse the website. The Blog page will give you a feel for our recent ideas and activities. If you would like to talk to someone, please fill out the contact form below for a chat.

Hopefully when the pandemic eases, you’ll be able to come and see what we’re like on a Sunday and at other events – watch the website to see what becomes possible and when.
