First time at Chudleigh Baptist? First time at church?
We are a Baptist church made up of people of all ages who live in Chudleigh and the surrounding area. Some have lived in Chudleigh all their lives, others have moved to the town more recently. The church is led by a team of local Christians.
We enjoy working with other churches in the town as part of 'Christians in Chudleigh'. We are part of the South West Baptist Association and the Baptist Union of Great Britain.
At Chudleigh Baptist Church our vision is to be a family of all ages, abilities and backgrounds who love and follow Jesus. We seek to worship God to the best of our ability and with all of our lives, putting him first in all things throughout our week. We want to grow in our faith through reading the bible, prayer, and learning from others. We recognise that we are called to serve and bless the community of Chudleigh, demonstrating God’s love in creative ways and working for his kingdom of peace and justice, bringing hope and offering a welcome to all.
You can keep up to date with news and events on our Facebook page, and please do not hesitate to email us with any questions.
Welcome on board the adventure!
With lots of love,
What should I wear?
Most of our regulars choose to dress casually, but please wear whatever you feel comfortable in!
Who should I find if I have any questions?
Our church family are all very friendly and can point you in the right direction, however our leadership team will be introduced at the beginning of the service and will be happy to help you at any time.
What about my kids?
On Sunday mornings we run a full kids programme for ages 0-18. Our kids join us for the first few songs at the start of the service, then they go out to their groups - we’ll make it really clear when this time has come. All of our children's workers are Enhanced DBS checked. You are welcome to come out with them and see what they are up to! For more information please click on 'kids and youth' on the Homepage.
How about prams and wheelchairs?
Chudleigh Primary School (where our church is held) is fully wheelchair accessible and pram friendly.
Where are the loos?
They are through the double doors at the front left of the hall. They are signposted. There is a disabled access toilet and baby-changing facilities.
What can I expect during the service itself?
The service will start with a few songs and the words will be on the big screen for you. If you don’t know the songs, just relax and listen. Feel free to sing, clap, tap your feet – whatever you are comfortable with. Most people will stand during any music, but equally, feel free to sit if you wish.
Following the first few songs, there will be announcements and then the children will head to their groups while the adults spend some more time in worship. This is followed by the day’s talk after which there will be a short time of prayer and an opportunity to respond to what have you have heard. The service lasts just over an hour and there is tea, coffee and biscuits served afterwards for some social time!
This is the general format but occasionally we have services where we explore and express our faith in different ways. Once a month we share communion (bread and wine), and we also regularly have all-age services when the children stay in for the duration and we worship together as a family.
How do I get more involved?
Getting more involved helps you to feel part of our church community and get to know people better. Please speak to Eleanor or any member of the leadership team to find out more. If you are interested in becoming a member of our church please click here.
