Silver Linings 

There is no doubt that the time we are living through is the strangest of times with many dark clouds. It’s often said that it’s “unique”, we’ve “never known a time like it”, it’s “unprecedented”.

The images on the news in the early days have become actual experience for some, and many of us have known pain, illness and loss. And we all know the isolation of lockdown and are sharply aware of the things we miss.

But I want to ask you this…..are there things that have happened that have lifted your spirits?

  • Have you become aware of something you hadn’t noticed before?  
  • Have you had an unexpected experience that has made you smile?
  • Something that wouldn’t have happened in more normal times.
  • Have you made a connection with someone that you only knew to nod to previously? Where have you seen a ray of light in the darkness?
  • Where is your Silver Lining!

If this resonates with you, why not share with the rest of us? It would be so lovely to hear about your experience. Just a couple of lines to describe the little things that have lifted you. Or a photo with a line or two of explanation.

Eleanor is poised to receive your Silver Linings which will be a new feature in INSight Magazine.

Please send your contribution to or, if you don’t have access to the internet, give Eleanor a call. Her number is in the Directory under Axcell. I can’t wait to see what you send in!

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.
