We are a group of ordinary people from many different backgrounds, who have had many different experiences in life, both good and bad, and yet we have one thing that brings us together and unites us – our love for our Father God and our relationship with him through his son, Jesus Christ.
Whetstone Baptist Church is a vibrant and active church, hosting three services on a Sunday - two in the morning and one in the evening - and running midweek small groups which offer a more personal setting to explore and deepen faith. We have dedicated prayer and pastoral groups and a wide range of adult, young person, and child ministry groups. We also have our own playgroup.
Whoever you are, whatever your background, whatever your current situation, you will be warmly welcomed at WBC. If you are someone who at the moment does not follow Jesus or believe in God, then you will be provided with a safe and trustworthy environment with which to explore Christianity and learn what it is to have a living and dynamic relationship with God through faith in Jesus [see Exploring Faith and Get Connected].
If you are someone who has a relationship with God, or once did and want to return to him, then you are equally welcome and will be given everything we have to offer to help you develop and deepen that relationship so that you will grow in faith and be spiritually empowered to serve our Father fruitfully [see Get Connected and Get Involved].
At the heart of everything is our belief that the Bible is God’s sacred letter to us; that the 66 different books, written under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit over approximately 1,600 years by kings and fisherman, poets and prophets, reveals to us who he is, who we are, why we are here, and how we can have the most fulfilling, satisfying, and mind-blowing relationship we could ever hope to have – a relationship with God.
At Whetstone Baptist Church we strive to be a people who are characterised by love, grace, and truth; a people who faithfully follow the orthodox teachings of the Bible, and a people who are clear about what we believe. At our Sunday services, Youth Church and Sunday Club, and throughout our midweek Small Groups, the teachings of Jesus and those of the Bible are faithfully taught in a warm, friendly, and welcoming environment.
