About Us


The SSJBC Family!

We are a small friendly Baptist Church with a BIG heart where everyone is welcome!

Our Church family ranges from our youngest twin boys born in December 2019 to our oldest who is 98 and many of our family are very new to church life!

Our aim is to open the doors and love people and our guiding verse for 2019 is shown to the left


Sundays @ SSJBC

Our weekly Sunday service starts at 10.45am and everybody is welcome.  

The children go out of the service after the first 15 minutes for their own special time of Godly Play.

Refreshments are served after the service and there is plenty of time to get to know people.


Godly Play

The majority of our Sunday services include a  Godly Play session for the children where they will have a story, time of wondering, feast, prayer and craft time.  

“In most religious education children are told who God is.  In Godly Play children discover who God is.”

About Us


Collecting @ SSJBC

At SSJBC we collect items all year round which many of us throw away  - these help us to support two very good causes Air Ambulance and BMS World Mission.  

We will also be collecting again for the Food Bank during Lent.

Please do support us if you are able  🙂
