Hello, and welcome.
Come and be a part of our church family
We meet in Chew Magna Baptist church in Chew Magna but we live all over the Chew Valley and in the surrounding villages.
What unites us is our relationship with Jesus Christ. We have discovered that He is real – not just a real historical figure in the past but a living personal God, and He is the answer to our deepest needs and the fulfillment of our strongest longings.
We are a church family of all ages and stages within our christian learning. We come together on Sundays to worship God, to enjoy friendship with one another and to be inspired and challenged by preaching which releases the energy of the text of the Bible so it can transform our lives.
We want to give a warm welcome to everyone, especially to those who are new to either Christianity or Chew Valley.
Why not come and visit us this Sunday?
Our standard time to start our Sunday Service is 10:00.a.m. at Chew Magna Baptist Church, but this can change. For time and/or venue change due to alternative services, please see below:
Sunday Services are sadly suspended due to covid 19
The Baptist Union and our local Association (WebNet) have issued guidelines for all churches in light of the most recent developments nationally regarding Coronavirus.
We will be complying with their advice and are stopping all our meetings, including Sunday worship, home groups and all other activities (e.g. Acorns, Sparklers, Messy Play, Breakfast@9, Renew Cafe at Bishop Sutton).
Whilst we will not be able to meet together there are other ways of maintaining contact with each other, and it is important that we use these to keep in touch during this difficult period. We will all be aware that amongst us are those who fall within the ‘at risk’ groups and we need to ensure these members of our church family are protected and cared for as much as possible.
Unfortunately, visiting people in their homes is not advisable except in exceptional circumstances. We are planning to set up a pastoral care programme where we maintain regular contact via phone calls, email or other electronic means. As this pandemic is expected to continue for some time it may mean weekly calls to all those associated with our community.
We are also working out how we might share a weekly ‘message’ (a short sermon).
These are challenging times for us all and we are mindful many people will be anxious and fearful. As the church we are concerned for everyone, but especially those considered most vulnerable in our communities.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
