COVID-19 Period Updates

Sunday 20th December 2020

Regrettably, due to the recent changes in local restrictions, it has been decided that the church buildings will be sadly closed with immediate effect until further notice.  It was felt it was the wisest decision in these new Tier 4 circumstances. Thank you. 

The YouTube broadcasts of services and the Zoom Foyer discussion times continue as usual - see the Sunday Services page for links.

SBC is regularly monitoring government and NHS advice regarding Coronavirus. 

All offline activities are suspended until further notice.

You can continue to keep in touch with SBC through this website, including audio recordings of our sermons which are found here, through the church’s YouTube channel, and social media including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. 

We will be maintaining telephone contact with our older members, and will be using social media  to maintain our spiritual togetherness - please watch this page and the Facebook page for details.
Links to our Social Media pages are at the foot of this page.

Isolated or need support?

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.


Unfortunately, all groups are suspended until further notice. Join us on our instagram page for updates.

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.
