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.

Pastor Warren McNeil

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.

The Need

Being part of a Meeting Together or house group is as vital to your Christian experience and growth as going to church on Sunday.

Leave a Legacy to a Christian Charity

Do you want to leave a legacy of Christian love in action for the work of Greenford Baptist Church or another Christian charity?

You can play your part in putting God's transforming love into action by leaving a legacy gift to Christian charities when you write your will.

This type of Christian giving is vital to the future of Christian charities, particularly in these challenging times.

When you leave a legacy gift in your will, you can ensure that today's Christian work continues in the future. So, when writing a will, please consider leaving a legacy to a Christian Charity as part of your stewardship giving. It's easy. Browse the Christian Legacy website to find out more, then contact your solicitor. Your gift whatever the size – can make a real difference.
