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 full statement on our blog for more.
While we are unable to gather, we will be worshipping in dispersed fashion, sharing prayers and reflection in our own homes each Sunday morning. These will be posted to our blog just before our usual service time of 10:30am. Just head over to our blog for the latest post, or subscribe at the bottom of this page to get an
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
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.
***WHILE SERVICES ARE SUSPENDED, THE BLOG WILL BE UPDATED EVERY SUNDAY MORNING WITH PRAYERS, SONGS, READINGS AND A REFLECTION.***
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.
The cafe is not currently running due to the ongoing health crisis, but see our social media for wellbeing thoughts each Monday morning, and pause for a moment of reflection each Monday at noon.
