About Us

Welcome to Bryn Baptist Church

Thanks for dropping by

Firstly we are pleased that you have found us! We’ve been a part of the community of Bryn since 1877 and although we remain a Bible believing church, we want to share the good news of Jesus Christ in a relevant and uplifting way to all.  If you’d like more information about what we believe then visit the vision and values section of our website.

A place of warmth and welcome

We run services and activities which are suitable for all.  Young or old.  New to church or not, you will find a friendly, modern environment where you can relax and enjoy the friendship and support of others around you alongside our leadership team.

We hold both family friendly and more contemplative services of worship on Sundays alongside Bible study groups, home groups and prayer groups.

New to Church?

We’ve all been there!  Turning up for the first time to somewhere new is never easy.  At Bryn, we offer a warm welcome to everyone who joins us and our meetings are accessible for all.  Here’s a few common questions that we get asked.

‘I don’t know where to sit’ our comfortable seating area carries no reservations.  You are free to sit wherever you like.

‘Is there a cost?  Will I need to bring money?’  Supporting the work of the Church is an important responsibility for our members, not guests or newcomers.  We do have a collection in our services however no one is obliged to make a donation.  There’s no pressure to give money.

‘I don’t know when to stand/sit/kneel’  Our services are very simple to follow.  We do not invite people to stand aside from when singing some of the songs, you may choose not to do so.  We do not ask people to kneel for prayer.

‘I don’t understand something I have heard’  Some of the people attending church have done so for many years and sometimes its easy to forget that not everyone understands the terms that may be used.  We consistently try to improve the way we communicate but if you have any questions, you may ask at any time or contact us with your question via the website or social media.
