Welcome to Greenford Baptist Church

2018 GBC Motto

Don’t be afraid! Speak Out! Don’t be silent! For I am with you… (Acts 18:9-10)

Though a vision given directly to the apostle Paul, it is also a word for the people of GBC for this season. We are to be a people who speak out for the Lord. The speaking out about the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ should be the core of our daily lives. There are more people for the Kingdom of God than we know. We should not be afraid and most certainly not silent! Silence is what helps Satan advance. So let's thank God that He is with us and live our lives in that truth.

Meeting Together and House Groups

Andy RobertsonAndy RobertsonWe really encourage everybody at Greenford Baptist Church to think about joining a Meeting Together or mid-week House Group.

So, when writing a will, please consider leaving a legacy to a Christian Charity as part of your stewardship giving. It's easy.
