I’m new here…

Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little more about Leominster Baptist Church! We have spent a lot of time dreaming about the kind of church we would want to be a part of. We have settled on the idea of being the kind of church where “Everyone’s welcome because nobody’s perfect, but we believe that anything’s possible.”

LBC is a church that is more than just a weekly worship gathering. We are a community that centres on the person and mission of Jesus. You may not be a church goer or consider yourself a religious person. Perhaps you have encountered too many overzealous Christians or been put off by what you have seen and heard about Christianity. In the light of this, we promise we won’t try to convert, manipulate or brainwash you (to be honest we wouldn’t know how!). However, what we would like to do is invite you to come and see what we are about for yourself. Feel free to look around our site and find out more about us. Details of our services are on this page and information about other activities and groups that we run can be found here.

What we are all about?

We often say that our job is to keep the main thing the main thing. But what is the main thing? We think it can be summed up with the word “Gospel.” However even this can be confusing so here is a video that explains what this means to us and why it makes all the difference in the world.

What happens on a Sunday?

Sundays are not all that there is to church but they do play a big part. Each Sunday we have our weekly gatherings at 11 a.m. and 6.30 p.m.  This is a chance to meet with each other, worship together and reflect on what it means to know God. Below is some information on what you can expect in these gatherings.
You can expect a warm welcome, some music designed to provide an atmosphere of worship and a message to help you think and address real life and help you find your potential in a relationship with God.

Will I understand what’s going on?

We aim to make our services accessible to as many as possible. If you choose to come along you will find plenty of help and explanation of what is happening. We do take up a monetary collection but it is for our members and regular attendees. If you are a visitor or guest, please do not feel like you have to give.


What should I wear?

We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you’re joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you’re wearing. There is no dress code – you will see people in jeans, khakis, t-shirts, shirts, jumpers, dresses or anything that you might wear out in everyday life. We think you’ll fit in no matter how you dress.

Where should I park?

The church has a courtyard in front of it in which you may park but it tends to fill up fast. Parking is also available along Etnam Street and there is parking behind the Chequers pub opposite which is pay and display (2 Hours for £0.50 and 4 Hours for £1.00)

Where will my children go?

We see children as part of the family so they normally stay with parents for the first part of the morning meeting and then go out when the children’s programmes start. However we do have times when the young people stay in (normally the first Sunday of each month). You will be informed when this is the case.

In the mornings there is a creche available for parents with babies and toddlers. There are also groups for children up to age 18. Please look here to learn more about our children’s ministry.

I’m unsure about this church thing…

You may have questions or doubts. If so, you are in good company… this is how a lot of us started out. Our aim is to make this a place where you can be yourself and explore faith. So if you have any questions feel free to ask them. If you have any concerns we are happy to hear them and if you want to just check us out and not make any commitment that’s okay too. Whenever you’re ready, we will be happy to talk.

One last thing.

Maybe you have questions, maybe you have doubts, maybe you’re opposed to religion. If so you are in good company. This is how all followers of Jesus start out.

Jesus has been changing lives for thousands of years. We believe he is more than a myth, fairy tale or a result of wishful thinking. The problem is that just explaining him won’t get across what he is like… he has to be experienced.

So whenever you feel ready and whenever you have the time, we invite you to come and see for yourself.

If you are in need of help, support, advice, a listening ear or just a friend then please feel free to contact us and we will do all we can to help.
