Welcome to Wealdstone Baptist Church!

Wealdstone Baptist is a dynamic church right in the heart of Wealdstone and it’s great that you’ve taken the time to visit the website, we hope that you find all the information you are after. If there is anything else you need or cannot find please don’t hesitate to contact us, we would love to help you.

What Can I Expect?

Wealdstone Baptist Church is a Multi-Cultural Church with people from all walks of life! Upon arrival, you can expect to be greeted and receive a warm welcome in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, if you would like to pick up a ‘Welcome Pack’, that will provide you with a little bit of information about what we do and why they are available at the back of the church.

At WBC we like to go out of our way to make you feel at home. So please feel free to ask about any of the services we provide including some brilliant facilities for Children and Youth.

The service starts at 10:30am and during the service we will; sing songs of worship lead by our fantastic worship band, have times of prayer, and a talk. For examples of some of the teaching we receive please head over to the Sermons section of our website. Services last approximately 90 minutes and we are sure that you and your family will absolutely love it!

After the service there is time to enjoy free tea and coffee in our café area and meet some great people! If you’d like to have someone contact you with more information, or just to answer some of your questions, please do not hesitate to fill out one of our contact forms also found at the back of the church in the Welcome leaflet.

There is another service at 6:30pm which runs on a more relaxed style, but still with some great teaching and music.

Are there facilities for my children?

Yes – No matter what the age of your Child, on a Sunday there are different groups. If you have a child of pre-school age we have a Crèche area set out where you can watch the service on a television whilst your child is free to make as much noise as they like. If your child is at school or sixth form then there are also led groups with fantastic Children’s and Youth workers, these groups meet partway through the service.

Can I come along to see what it’s all about?

Absolutely yes! We recognise that many people are wanting to explore the Christian faith but don’t always feel comfortable about checking out church – if that’s you then Wealdstone Baptist Church is for you! We would love to see you!

Is there parking?

Parking is currently available on the streets around the church but try to make sure that you arrive in plenty time to guarantee yourself a good spot!

Fellowship Groups:

There are several Fellowship Groups in the church, so if you are new to the church and would like to connect during the week, then please contact the church office for more information.

Covid-19 Notice

Last Updated on 27/06/20

Following the Government’s statement on Tuesday this week that churches can begin to have services again, I am sure you are wondering what that means for Wealdstone Baptist Church!

The reality at the moment is that we do not yet know.

As I write this (Thursday evening), The Government have not yet published the details. Usually, these appear on the Government website a few days after a briefing is given. So, what do we know? It seems that churches will be able to hold services from 4th July, but with restricted numbers and no singing. The view is that singing puts more virus particles into the atmosphere than just talking. The Leadership met and discussed this on Zoom earlier in the week.

We will wait for the published document before making a firm plan but if we are not allowed to sing, there seems to be little advantage to rush to change from what we are doing at present on a Sunday morning with the online service. However, we are looking at restarting some other meetings in the church building such as the War Room on the week starting 6th July. We are also looking at options for streaming services live from the church building and may be testing these soon, possibly on a Sunday evening or mid-week. At the same time we have begun a risk assessment to look at all the implications of opening the building for meetings under social distancing guidelines.

The Government document should be published soon, along with advice from the Baptist Union. We will then hopefully be able to give more information about how we will be moving forwards with re-opening the building next week.

We are still running various Zoom Meetings with most of the church activities. Please read news and notes for more information.

We are also continuing to post the services at our dedicated youtube channel and on the website home page – More details below:
