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.
Key information about the church...
Where & when does the church meet?
Our Sunday Gatherings are informal and you can be assured of a warm welcome!
On the 2nd Sunday of the month we begin our service with whole church communion
On the 3rd Sunday of the month is our brand new Cafe Church, which is interactive: A short talk, drama and activities to prompt discussion and of course lots of coffee and cake!
We meet at: Clayton Baptist Church, School Street, Clayton, Bradford BD14 6AL
You can see a map on our contact us page.
What should I expect when I visit the church?
Apart from the warm welcome, finding a seat is easy in our simple layout and there are plenty people to have a conversation with. We don't really have a set format, but the service will normally include singing, prayer, and a message based on the Bible with some time after the message to reflect by yourself or with those seated nearby as we learn and journey with each other.
'Explore' which is our kids ministry starts around 15 mins after the service starts and the kids will be led to their groups.
Refreshments are served after some services, and all the way through others. 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. The service leader 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…
