Stoneygate Baptist Church
Coronavirus (covid 19) update
In light of the current health crisis, and in accordance with guidance from the government and the Baptist Union, all services and church activities are temporarily suspended. We will be taking this time to explore creative ways of being church away from the building. Please see the latest update on our blog for more.
While we are unable to gather, we will be worshipping in dispersed fashion, sharing in prayers and songs and reflections in our own homes. Service material will be posted to our blog every Sunday morning, so click below for the latest post, or subscribe at the bottom of this page to get an email reminder.
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 one of them.
Stoneygate Baptist Church is a community that meets each week for worship and fellowship. 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 held at 10:30 am and are led by our minister and members of the congregation. The service includes hymns and songs, and readings and prayers, as well as a thought-provoking sermon and space to reflect. Communion is celebrated once a month, usually on the first Sunday. You can find out more about what to expect from a visit to SBC by heading here.
We proudly use Fairtrade products at our services, supporting workers in developing countries, helping bridge the connection between trade and poverty.
What we're talking about
Our minister will be on maternity leave from 25 May to 1 December, during which time services will be led by members of the congregation and guest preachers, so we can expect a wonderful and fascinating variety of styles and topics.
***WHILE SERVICES ARE SUSPENDED, THE BLOG WILL BE UPDATED EVERY SUNDAY MORNING***
