Welcome to

Stoneygate Baptist Church


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, embracing a diversity of all backgrounds and theological outlooks. 


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.


As well as the Sunday service we offer much more, including Busy Bees, Messy Church and room hire. See the Events and Activities pages for more details of what is happening.

What we're talking about

We are starting the year by working through the Gospel of John, a chapter a week until the beginnning of April, and then the story of the passion - from final supper to empty tomb - during the week leading up to Easter.

SPECIAL SERVICE: On 26 January, we will be joined by Luke Dowding, co-director of Affirm and executive director of OneBodyOneFaith, who will be preaching on inclusion and the kingdom of God.

Our Wednesday afternoon small group meets for discussion inspired by Sunday morning teaching, and our Thursday evening small group is currently working through the Bible Society's Bible Course. See the Activities page for more details.

To catch up with recent reflections - including an overview of the Big Story from creation to resurrection, some reflections on God in popular culture, and an exploration of the Lord's Prayer - head over to our blog.

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.
