Stoneygate Baptist Church
An inclusive church for all
An update from us
We are now worshipping onsite as well as online, with services at 10:30am in the the church building and on our Vimeo page. See below or read here to learn more, including the measures we have in place to help keep us as safe as possible.
A lot has changed in the past year, but some things have remained the same, and Stoneygate Baptist Church continues to be a community that meets each week for worship and fellowship, 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 led by our minister and members of the congregation. They includes hymns and prayers, as well as a reading and a thought-provoking sermon. Communion is celebrated once a month, usually on the first Sunday. You can find out more about SBC by heading here.
Before the pandemic, we hosted a weekly wellbeing cafe and ran family activities including our annual holiday club and a monthly Messy event, and we also hired our building out to community groups and local residents. We look forward to being able to open our doors for these things again when circumstances allow. See the Events and Activities pages for more details.
What we're talking about
As an Inclusive Church, we have declared that we celebrate and affirm all people and will work to challenge all forms of discrimination, and so on 13 June we will have a special service in honour of Pride Month, while on 20 June we will mark Refugee Week.
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.
