About us

Welcome to the Swanwick Baptist Church website.

Baptist Christians have been meeting in our present location 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.

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. (By the way, our premises  - hall and kitchen and main chapel space - are available for hire at modest rates).

Coming events:

Every Tuesday at 10.30am we meet in our Schoolroom off Chapel Street for In Touch which includes prayer followed by a chance to chat together and drink coffee/tea. Anybody is welcome to join in. If you have any prayer requests but can't come yourself, you can email these to Brian at bnichwm@aol.com.

Coming soon:
