Welcome to Greenford Baptist Church

2017 GBC Motto

THE LORD IS A WARRIOR (Exodus 15:3)

This is a bold statement of fact about our loving God that we in 21st century church appear to “ignore.” Our God loves His world with a warrior passion. Wanting to reclaim the ground from evil and restore hope in the lives of everyone who has none. Our warrior God does this through His people. The church should do this with a bold and confident authority using all the spiritual gifts that He has imparted to us.

Pastor Warren McNeil

Micah Thomas Baptism

Please pray for Micah Thomas as he is getting baptised this Sunday (19th November) at the church in Mostar. This is an exciting time for the family and for us as church family.

Creche Helpers

We have have a staffed creche on Sunday mornings so that parents of smaller children are able to hear God’s word without being distracted. This is a great ministry both for the care of parents and for the children to be around stories of the Bible in a fun and interactive way. But this cannot happen with people willing to help staff the creche. Please see Margaret Hall if you are willing to explore this area of ministry.

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.

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.
