New to Church?
Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our Church.
Following recent government and Yorkshire Baptist Association guidelines regarding the Coronavirus, meetings are rather different from usual. We can still be contacted via our website and will publish any further advice as and when we receive it.

What should I expect when I visit the church?
You will receive a very warm welcome, particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. The meeting opens with prayer, followed by singing songs of praise. After a children's slot, our young people go to their own groups (unless it's our monthly Family Service) and we have times of prayer and Bible reading. After the notices, there will be a message from one of the leaders of the Church or a visiting speaker, with a chance to respond at the end of the service.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
What happens to the kids at church?
Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the morning. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their programme. You will need to go with your children and register them, the first time they attend.
For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under church life.
Is there a dress code?
No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
Will I have to join in?
Not at all! You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
We have more information for you specifically if you…
I have more questions, how can I get in touch and ask them.
