Privacy Policy

At Hinckley Baptist Church we collect different types of information about our users for the following main reasons:

  1. To provide a useful resource in the form of an online directory of users.
  2. To provide an interactive website where email is used to communicate with the users.
  3. To provide a security mechanism whereby we can restrict content to certain groups of users.
  4. To help us to improve the service we offer.

Our principles

We are absolutely committed to protecting your privacy. Our policy can be summarised in one sentence: we will not share your information with others without your consent.

We have established the following two principles:

  1. We will respect your email privacy. You will only receive email from Hinckley Baptist Church in relation to areas you have expressly signed up for.
  2. We will not share any individual user details (including your email address) to any third party without your consent.

What information do we collect?

We collect information on our users through registration.

The minimum information we need to register a user is your first and last name and a password. We also ask for some further, voluntary information so we can provide a richer, more useful address book.

Who will have access to your information?

You have control over who is able to access specific items of information. By default your personal information will be visible to other authenticated users of the site. You can change these settings from your personal profile page. Your information will be used to build the online address book and show your birthday in the Hinckley Baptist Church calendar.

What else you should know about privacy

Remember to close your browser when you have finished your user session. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or internet cafe. You as an individual are responsible for the security of, and access to, your own computer.

Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information over the internet that this information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information in publicly accessible online forums, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your usernames and passwords and any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are using the internet.

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.

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.

During the summer months the church is set out cafe style, as below, and 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. Then follows a time of sung worship, often led by our band. We typically have 2 or 3 songs lasting approximately 15 minutes. 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 then give a sermon/talk that is bible based, explaining how we can apply that message and teaching to our everyday lives. We then 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?

Children

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.
  
Please contact families@hinckleybaptist.com if you would like more details or information on our Families groups.

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 gatherings 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.
