Welcome

We are worshipping onsite and online.

Onsite services are on Sunday mornings 

at 10:30am in the church building,

and recordings are uploaded on Sunday afternoons,

so see below or subscribe to our blog and social media

to see what we are sharing.

Hello!

A lot has changed in the past two years, but some things have remained the same, and Stoneygate Baptist Church continues to be a community that makes time each week for worship and fellowship, with services now both onsite and online. Our church building is a well-known landmark on London Road, about two miles from Leicester city centre. Some of those who join us live very locally, while others live further away.

 

We are a friendly and welcoming church, with a broad and inclusive ethos, welcoming everyone regardless of background, beliefs, sexuality, gender identity, ethnicity, health or ability. 

 

Sunday services are at 10:30am in the building and shared online, and are led by our minister and members of the congregation. They include hymns and prayers, as well as a reading and a thought-provoking sermon. Communion is celebrated on the the first Sunday of the month. We also hold monthly church meetings, usually after the service on the third Sunday of the month, when we talk about and make plans for the life of the church. You can find out more about SBC by heading here.

 

We also host a weekly wellbeing cafe and run family activities including a monthly Messy event, and we regularly hire our building out to community groups and local residents. See the events and activities pages for more details.

If you have found us online and you haven't yet introduced yourself, we would love for you to get in touch and say hello.

An inclusive church for all

We are seeking to be a people and a place of welcome. Whoever you are, we believe in a church that loves and serves all people.

 
 

We are a Fairtrade church

Fairtrade is making a real difference to the lives of more than 1.65 million farmers and workers in 74 developing countries.

 

Faith groups are key supporters of Fairtrade and more and more churches are making the connection between trade and poverty and committing to using Fairtrade products including tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits.

 

We are proud to be one of them.

You can learn more about Fairtrade here,

and shop Fairtrade locally by visiting Just Fair Trade.
