About us

Welcome to the Swanwick Baptist Church website.

Baptist Christians have been meeting on our present site since the mid 1790s and as the village changes and grows around us it's our desire to keep sharing the life and message of Jesus Christ with our neighbours and friends and to serve the community in the best ways we can.

We  normally gather each Sunday at 10.45am for worship. Visitors and new attendees are always welcome. Covid rules apply, so you'll need a facemask and there are some pews that are out of bounds so that we can maintain social distancing.

The Chapel is situated in its own grounds on the right hand side of Derby Road as you head north, just before you pass the garage on the opposite side of the road. (Postcode DE55 1BG). Parking is available on the main road. 

If you'd like more information or want to be in touch for any other reason, feel free to contact us via the website or our Facebook page. Alternatively, email our Moderator, Brian Nicholls at bnichwm@aol.com.

TIME CHANGE!!! On Tuesday our In Touch prayer gathering is at the revised time of 10.30am, in the Schoolroom. (This normally lasts about 30 minutes, and is based around a simple order of service which includes a chance to explore briefly a Bible passage, and to share prayer requests and news.) This week we will be able to connect up to Zoom, if you can't make it in person. If you need the link, let us know. Tea and coffee will be available afterwards, served in a Covid safe way.

Meetings for the next few weeks include:

Sunday 1st August at 10.45am - Rev Graeme Stockdale is leading worship which includes communion.

Saturday 7th August, 8.30am to 10am - prayer breakfast; 10am onwards - work morning to tackle some of the practical jobs that need doing around the chapel building and grounds.

Sunday 8th August at 10.45am - Brian Kirkland from St Andrew's Parish Church is leading worship and we'll be joined by friends from the Anglican and Methodist churches.
