A church that delights in God’s Word and celebrates God’s grace
Welcome To Upton Baptist Church
Building a community for Christ
We’re a friendly and welcoming Bible-believing evangelical church made up of people from all walks of life, united by our love of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Please do have a look around the website and get in touch if you have any questions.
Our Sunday morning family service is at 11.00. It is recorded and live-streamed – see the Resources page. Some weeks this will be followed by a church lunch to which all are welcome.
The evening service is at 5.00, and we meet at 4.30 for tea, coffee and snacks. This will be either communion, a prayer time, an informal discussion, or something else! Please see the calendar in the What’s On page.
Our family friendly and accessible services last a little over an hour. We’re an active and outward-looking church where you’ll receive a warm welcome.
A crèche with a video link is available during the morning service and there are 3 Sunday School classes for younger children.
What’s the best gift God could give you? Life Explored – an informal and relaxed 4 week course. This world is full of experiences and possessions which promise happiness, yet deliver so little. As it explores the Bible story (creation, fall, redemption, new creation), Life Explored shows how our deepest desires for happiness can only be satisfied in one person, Jesus Christ. The best gift God can give us is himself Get in touch to find out more.
OK we’re not located near the campus area, but over the years we’ve provided many students with a spiritual home during their studies. If you’d like a lift please get in touch. And if you’d like Sunday lunch, just let us know!
The Bible study / Prayer meeting is in church some Wednesdays, and we have a variety of house groups, ladies Bible study meetings, coffee mornings and other informal meetings.
From crèche, right through to older teens and young adults, we have a range of clubs and activities, all working to develop and strengthen a living faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
A lively program of games, crafts and engaging Bible stories. School years 3-6, 6.15-7.30pm – currently every other Tuesday.
For high school age+, meetings alternate between games and activities in the church hall or away ‘activities’, and Bible studies. 7.30-9.00 Fridays.
