Welcome to

Stoneygate Baptist Church

An inclusive church for all

An update from us

In light of the current health crisis, we are following guidance from the government, public health sources and the Baptist Union, for all services, church activities and room hire.

,

We have taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend services in the building, but we will continue to make them available online. You can read more about why we have taken this decision here, and find our online services here.

Hello!

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

We are starting 2021 with a series based on Barbara Brown Taylor's book An Altar in the World. We will be working through the twelve practices she suggests will help us find the sacred beneath our feet.

You can catch up with the most recent services on our blog.

An inclusive church for all

We are seeking to be a people and a place of welcome. Regardless of who 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 one of them.
