Nelson Baptist Church – Where you’re very welcome.

We gather for the purpose of knowing God and each other. We worship God by displaying his likeness through community and service.

Each Sunday:

We meet each Sunday at 10am as a community of diverse people who are seeking to know God and each other. In this service we take time to read scripture, pray, sing, celebrate important milestones in each others lives, hear how things are going for one another, and to share fresh baking and a hot drink together! We celebrate communion together on the first Sunday of each month.

This gathering consists of a mix of ages and different stages of faith. Our services are often characterized as reflective in style. We value the encouragement and learning we gain from scripture and so we spend around 20 – 25 minutes of the 1hr15 service focused on the scripture reading of the day.

Children are very welcome in our service and are a part of it for the first fifteen minutes or so, after which there is a children’s programme running (during term time) for 3 – 12 year olds. A supervised creche is also available for younger children.

Our Children’s programme runs during church time, and is a fun mix of games, challenges, and Bible learning aimed at helping children to develop their own faith in God that works in their world.


A senior service is held every second Sunday afternoon of the even months. This is preceded by a 30 minute organ recital (yes we have a genuine pipe organ!). The service itself is roughly an hour in length and is filled with hymns and humour. Start time 2pm organ recital, 2:30 service. A wonderful afternoon tea follows the service.
