Helping people follow Jesus

We welcome people at all stages of their journey of faith.  Maybe you have been a Christian believer for many years, or you are just beginning to explore the Christian faith for yourself.  You might simply want to be involved with this community to enjoy friendship and support.

Baptist Church

We at Wakefield Baptist Church are a church first, and a “baptist church” second. As a church (a community of followers of Jesus) our passion is to know and follow God, who we meet in the person of Jesus.

We are a baptist church – which means that we see baptism as important. This is something that we practice as a demonstration and celebration of our following Jesus.

Community

We are a community of communities, meeting together and sharing life in many different ways.  Each Sunday there are opportunities to worship at Wakefield Baptist Church (WBC), Belle Isle Christian Centre, Belle Isle Avenue, Wakefield, WF1 5JY – in the morning at 10.30am and in the evening at 6.30pm.

But that’s only a small part of the complexity that is WBC.  Because God is interested in the whole of life, we are as well; and we encourage each other to balance times of worship with serving others and with learning and growing. Please explore the site to find out all the things we are up to.  More importantly, get in touch by email or phone or just come along to one of the events and introduce yourself.  We’d love to meet you.

Vision

Our motto is: ‘Helping people follow Jesus’.  We welcome people at all stages of the journey of faith.  If you have been a Christian believer for many years, you are just beginning to explore the Christian faith for yourself, or you simply want to be involved with this community to enjoy friendship and support, you are welcome!

We aim to put Jesus at the centre of all we are and all we do.
