Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life - we hope the website helps you find out what you want to know about Woodford Baptist.

Key info about the church...

When & where does the church meet?
The church meets every Sunday at 10.30am for our Sunday Service. It helps to get there 10 minutes early to get a parking spot and seat in time for the service to start.

We meet at the church building in South Woodford. The address is:

Woodford Baptist Church, George Lane, South Woodford, London E18 1LW.

You can see a map on our contact us page

There is some parking available on the site.



What to expect when I visit the church

You can expect a warm welcome, great worship, an impacting preach and a friendly bunch of people gathering to learn more about God.

Also tea, coffee and biscuits after the service!



What happens to the kids at church?

Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the service. The speaker will make it clear where and when children need to go to their programme.

We have a fantastic programme for the kids at church for ages 4-12.  All children should be register as you come into the church building and you may need to accompany smaller children to their room until they are settled.  Children can expect to have fun playing games, and learning about God in a relevant way.

For babies and younger children we have a creche where you can either stay with you children or leave them.  The service is transmitted into the creche, so you can see and hear what is happening in the main service.  However, this depends on what is actually happening in the creche on the day.



Is there a dress code?
No! Just wear something comfortable! 



Will I be made to feel uncomfortable?

Not at all! We will be welcoming, and you will not be forced to do anything you are not comfortable doing. We want you to feel right at home and enjoy the service. Do join us for a drink after the service to get to know some people from the church.



Is there a collection (offering)?

We do not pass around an offering bag/collection plate, nor do we invite people to come up to the front to give donations.  We have two small boxes on the wall in the church building (one at the front and the other at the back) which are for people who are members and choose not to give via regular Standing Order.  You are welcome as visitors to give too -if you choose to, and there are Gift Aid Envelopes by the boxes you can use, along with information about ways to give and where they money goes.

We are an independently financed church, receiving no denominational money. We are supported by the regular giving of our members and regular attenders.
