Coleford Baptist Church is a place to…
- Be yourself.
- Have fun.
- Build relationships.
- Discover your purpose.
- Make a difference.
Our Purpose is Simple:
To Know Jesus, and to Make Him Known. Another way of putting this is that we want people to fall more in love with Jesus. Regardless of your background or present situation, we believe God has something great for your future. Therefore, we want to provide a safe place to encounter God. You can discover more about this on our Strategy and Vision page.
PLAN A VISIT
We would love to have you visit us here at Coleford Baptist Church.
We meet every Sunday at 10:30 am and we are used to visitors- if you let us know you are coming then we can make sure you have everything you need to make your visit to our Church a great one. Otherwise, just turn up, and let the Welcome team on the door know you are new here – they’ll do the rest. We are a friendly community church who believe that as Christians our faith not only relates to our Sunday experience, it shapes every part of our lives. We strive to create a church atmosphere of love and acceptance, with a strong sense of welcome and belonging.
WHO WE ARE
Rob Saunders is our Minister. Following completion of his training, Rob and his wife Donna moved to this area in 2014 to be part of Coleford Baptist Church along with their two children, Gabriella and Elliot. Rob previously worked in Local Government IT in Worcestershire and Herefordshire. They love being here in the Forest, and love being at a place where, regardless of where you are in your journey with God, you can take steps to grow spiritually and to get to know others on the same journey.
The Church is led by Rob and a team of Deacons (Church leaders), who are elected by the Membership of the church. We believe that everyone should play a part in the life of our church; lots of people help out in different ways.
We are a Baptist Church, which means we operate in a certain way. You can find out more about Baptists at the Baptists Together website.
Our morning services are relaxed and contemporary in style, with worship being led by our talented and enthusiastic music team. Our children’s ministry Quest meets for most services, with creche facilities also available.
We enjoy each others’ company at various events throughout the year. These events are a chance to get to know each other, and our community and form new friendships. Many members are active in a range of social and community activities, including The Forest Foodbank, The Fairtrade Foundation, Christians Against Poverty, Coleford Community Choir and a range of charities.
