I feel privileged to serve the Lord on our Pastoral Team, supporting others as and when they need it.   As one half of our Pastoral Team.  I support others and walk along with them when needed, with God's help.  I retired from the NHS in 2021 after 43 years.  I enjoy spending time with my grand children, gardening, holidays and eating chocolate.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit for the first time, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning when you visit us.

20210731 094728

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 10:45am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and then find somewhere you are comfortable to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you will be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team who will be wearing a Welcome lanyard.

There is limited parking available on the site, plus public car parks close by on each side of Stockwell Head (near to the Concordia Theatre) which are free of charge on Sundays.

20210731 094533

We serve tea, coffee and cakes/biscuits from 10.15am, before the service begins. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

Accessibility: We have wheelchair access and disabled toilets in our newly re-furbished foyer.   

Our Service

The main service begins at 10.45am with a warm welcome from one of our Members.   We have a short family time together with a fun song, story or game while the children are with us.  After the children go to their classes, we have a time of sung worship, usually led by our band. We have 2 or 3 songs. On the first Sunday of the month we share Communion together.  Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the bible. Sometimes people share things that they believe God is saying to the whole church family. This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it’s all part of our connecting with God. One of our leaders or a visiting Preacher/Minister will give a sermon/talk that is bible based, explaining how we can apply that message and teaching to our everyday lives. We usually finish with a final worship song and a prayer. There is an opportunity to receive personal prayer at the end of the service, in a quiet place.  Just ask one of the Welcome Team to guide you to the right person and place...........

What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:
  • Creche (under school age children). We don’t currently run a crèche, but children are welcome to play at the back of the church with toys and books we have for them.
S.A.L.T Sharing And Learning Together.
Older school age children go out into our children’s groups which we currently run on the 1st and 4th Sundays of each month (from Sept-June):-
  • 4-10 year olds (Reception to year 6)
  • 11-14 year olds (years 6 to 8)
  • 15-17 year olds (years 9 to 11)18+ stay in church for our service. We offer mentoring outside of service times. 
Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service. We really value worshipping God all together as a family for the first part of our service. When it’s time for the children to go out to their various groups, Leaders take them up to our Pathways centre for their activities and teaching. The kids group activities vary depending on the age. There is a friendly welcome, bible stories, sharing time, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play. Please go along to collect your children once the service finishes, and then re-join us for our coffee and chat time.

On the 2nd Sunday of the month we have our Parade Service where Girls Brigade and Boys Brigade children and parents join us for a family friendly fun service. We serve breakfast for our Brigade families from 10am prior to the service starting at 10.45. 

On the 3rd Sunday of the month, alongside our normal morning service, we run Messy Church in the Pathways Centre. This is "alternative" church, which we run in the afternoon from 3-5pm. This is open to everyone, not just children and parents/carers. See our Messy Church page for what goes on here.

Getting Connected

Life Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, worship God, listen to good Bible teaching and catch up over coffee/tea, it is in smaller groups that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our Life Groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week. Check out Life Groups and see if you would like to join a group? We can put you in touch with a Life Group Leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to try their group.

Serving and Volunteering

If you would like to get involved in the life of the church and help us make Sundays run smoothly, please speak to one of our Welcome Team or if you would like to volunteer at one of our community based groups in Pathways, please contact admin@hinckleybaptist.com and someone will get back to you to chat about opportunities and current vacancies.
