An Evangelical Grace Baptist Church Affiliated To The Association Of Grace Baptist Churches (South East)

What do we do during the Week?

Christianity Explored

This is a popular and effective introduction to the Christian faith, used by churches and Christian groups all over the world.  We recommend the course for anyone new to our church, whether a believer or not.  We aim to run the course three times a year.

For more details of the course contact Tom Forryan the Pastor of the church on

Children’s Groups

We currently run the Friday Club for age 5 to 11, on term-time Fridays from 5pm to 6pm.  Activities include crafts, games and a Bible talk.

From time to time, we also run a “Holiday Bible Club”, usually for Primary school children.  For more details contact Ashkan Sarmadi on

Teenage group

We also run a group called “Portal” on Friday evenings for ages 11-14, on term-time Fridays from 7pm to 8:30pm. For more information contact Ashkan Sarmadi on

Parents & Toddlers

This popular local group runs on Monday mornings from 10am to 11.30am.  Places are limited and there is often a waiting list, so please contact us before coming.


Many of us find it helpful to meet during the week with a small group of other Christians.  Activities vary but will generally include discussion, sharing of news and concerns, Bible study and prayer.

Housegroups meet three times a month, at various times and locations.  Please contact us if you would like to join a group.

English Classes

We run a weekly English Class on Saturday mornings from 10am to 11:30. This generally includes a bit of grammar, speaking, listening, writing, and also looking at simple stories from the Bible. For more information contact Ashkan Sarmadi on

Prayer Meetings

On the fourth Tuesday of the month we generally meet at church to pray together.  We start at 7.30pm and finish at 9pm.

Other prayer meetings, weeks of prayer etc may be organised from time to time.  Please see the “News” page for more information.
