An update from us
In light of the current health crisis, and in accordance with guidance from the government and the Baptist Union, all services, church activities and room hire
are affected. We have taken time to explore creative ways of being church, with the addition of online services, uploaded to Vimeo every Sunday. We now would like to invite you to join us in our building to watch these on Sundays at 10am.
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 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 and events, supporting workers in developing countries and helping bridge the connection between trade and poverty.
As well as the Sunday service, we host a weekly wellbeing cafe and run family activities including our annual holiday club and a monthly Messy event. We also hire our building out to community groups and local residents. See the Events and Activities pages for more details of what is happening.
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.
We have now started meeting again in our building on Sunday mornings at the earlier time of 10:00am. At present we are not able to sing and need to wear masks and observe social distancing. Our prerecorded service is shown on the big screen, but also available at home through Vimeo.
How to take part on Sundays
1. Join us in the building at 10am to watch our pre-recorded service. We have put a number of measures in place to make the church Covid secure. Please remember to bring a face covering with you.
