Old Baptist Chapel

Any Questions?

Visiting for the First Time?

What do you do in a Church service?
Our church services will typically involve singing hymns, prayer, reading the Bible, and preaching.

How long do the services last?
Services usually last for about one hour.

Do I need to bring a Bible?
If you have a Bible and would like to bring it along, then feel free to do so. If you do not own a Bible, or would like to follow the Bible reading more closely in the version used in our services, then there are Bibles available in each pew. The preacher will do his best to remember to read out the page number that is being read from!

Is there a collection during the service?
No, there is not a collection during the meeting. If you would like to contribute towards the work of the church, there are boxes near the entrance, but giving is voluntary.


Can I bring my children?
Yes, children are encouraged to join in with the services, and in the morning they will probably be invited to listen to a talk especially for them. There is also a separate Sunday School class which ends about half an hour before the start of the main morning service.

What if my children are noisy?
They will probably be in good company! However, if at any stage you feel uncomfortable with the level of noise or disruption being created, then there is a separate room with a video link of the service which you are free to use. The steward at the entrance can direct you to this room if necessary.

Are there any facilities for mothers with babies?
There are baby changing facilities, as well as a private lockable room if required. A key can be obtained from the steward at the chapel entrance.

Do you have a Child Protection Policy?
Yes we do. If you would like to view it through the website, please click on the Child Protection Policy link.

Facilities for the Disabled

Is there easy access to the chapel for the disabled?
There are steps leading up to the chapel, and due to a preservation order these cannot be altered. However, the church has recently invested in an Electric Powered Stairclimber and a number of trained users are available should you wish to use it.

Do you have any facilities within the chapel for the disabled?
We have a hearing aid loop system in place to aid those who are hard of hearing, and hymn books in large print are available if requested. There are also disabled toilet facilities.


Do you have any provisions for the homebound?
We would be more than happy to arrange a visit if you would like to talk things over. If you would like to receive regular sermon recordings, then tapes or CDs can be delivered to you. Alternatively, if you have a computer, you can access the Latest Sermons Online.
