about us

About usJust a little bit about who we are...

The church is vibrant and creative and has a large proportion of young families, and young people. We also have a lively group of older people who provide care and encouragement.

We seek to follow basic Christian Bible teaching, believing firmly in Jesus Christ as the only way to know God for salvation. We also believe in the work of the Holy Spirit and encourage the exercise of the gifts of the Spirit as experienced in the New Testament. We are part of the local Baptist Association and we are members of the Evangelical Alliance- a national body with a membership of several hundred churches.

Our Jubilee Celebrations in the townThis is our Statement of Belief.

God established Welton Baptist Church over 125 years ago to serve Him in the local community. The vision He gave us then is just as relevant today and at its centre is a particular call to worship God, to earnest prayer, to build Christian fellowship amongst us and to evangelise and care for God’s world. Because of the growing numbers in the church we now meet each Sunday at Somervale School whilst our Chapel in West Road is used during the week for some smaller meetings.


You may find our services a little noisier or much quieter than you expect or are used to in church but we hope that, whether we are noisy or quiet, you will discover the life-transforming reality of Jesus among us.
