New to Church?

00 Welcome Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our Church.

Some key information about the church...


Where & when does the church meet?

Our Church meets in four venues across the north-west of Leeds every Sunday. 

We meet at:

10.30 ABC Coffee Shop, Holt Park Shopping Centre or Adel Primary School, Tile Lane, Adel
10.30 Cragg Hill Baptist Church, Horsforth
11.00 Hollybush Primary School, Bramley
10.30 and 18.30 South Parade Baptist Church, Headingley

You can see a map on our contact us page and more information about what you can expect at the different venues is in the Mission Communities section of this site.

There is ample parking at the Holt Park Shopping Centre, limited on site parking available at the Horsforth and Bramley sites and on road parking at Headingley, though this can become congested when there is a major Sunday sporting event at the nearby Rugby and Cricket ground.

What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. There will be approximately 45 mins of singing with opportunity for church members to pray or read a passage from the bible. After the notices there will be a preach with a chance to respond at the end of the service.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.

What happens to the children at church?

We have a full programme for children at the Headingley, Bramley and Horsforth morning services for ages 0–16. Children generally stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the morning. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their activities..

For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you in the church life section of this website.

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.

Will I have to join in?

Not at all!
You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
