Chelmsley Wood Baptist Church
Here's what we're doing while things are tricky!
Due to the virus we have to close our Sunday morning and meetings for the time being. This is a bit distressing but we will survive. Click on the button above to find out what we are doing.
We are all spiritual and all of us are on a spiritual journey. How we do this varies from one person to the next, but being human we can't avoid it. Love, fear, loss, joy, courage, hope are all part of what makes us human. If you want a place to explore faith, where there is space for questions, doubt and mystery, then journey with us.
You may have been to a church in the past or not.
You may have had a negative experience with the church or Christianity.
You may not be sure where to begin your journey.
Begin here, for the first time or if you want to start again, explore faith with us and journey into your soul and the heart of God.
We are about Faith and Action
In terms of Faith this means:
We are a Christian church. This means we are followers of Jesus and hold a trinitarian understanding of God.
This can get complicated (if you want) but we can try and explain/discuss this with you!
In terms of Action this means:
We try to live out our understanding of what God is like and how we are to act as followers of Jesus. We believe this is about Love, Grace and Hope.
We are also a work in progress so don't expect saints here!
You show what you believe by what you do. The link below will show you what's going on and some of the things we are involved with.
More about us...
The Spiritual Journey
We are all on a spiritual journey. At CWBC we try to find ways that are interesting, challenging and practical, because a faith that is just escapism or theory is of little use. This page will tell you about our Sunday mornings and other things we do to help us on our way.
Faith & Life
Faith connects with life and we are involved in a number of community initiatives and run different events to help us grow in our spiritual lives, have fun and also make the world a better place. Take a look.
What are we like?
Churches can be funny, and not always in a hilarious way. This link tells you a bit about who we are and how we go about things.
and you'll find out what's coming up, our contact details and some links.
Neil (AKA Rev Neil Roberts) has a twitter feed, for those who like that kind of thing.
Here's what we're thinking about at the moment.....
Well, we are still in the Wilderness and things don't look like they will change soon. We've been working on journeying together (see the stuff on'5' elsewhere on the site), and on Sundays are picking up the theme of Wilderness and the in-between spaces.
We kick off with Adam & Eve being kicked out of their luxury garden into the harsh wilderness outside, and then walk with a crowd of God's people off into the unknown landscape. Expect to meet Abram, Sarai, Hagar and Isaac before we side step and look at the liminal places Jesus entered into during his ministry as we start the season of Lent.
What's this, the church connecting our faith with the reality of life?! I like the sound of that!
You can catch up on our Sunday talks and other random stuff, including some of the songs we like and random things of interest, on our YouTube channel
So why not join the spiritual journey and explore what/who/where is God in all this! You can join us online for prayer, reflection, bread, wine, or In Real Life at different points. Our most up to date information can befound on our facebook page, take a look and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Our next InRealLife Sundays will be
By then we'll know what is happening regarding the lockdown and whether it is OK to return. We are being cautious and taking it easy, we've got this far, let's not mess it up now!
As well as the Sunday Morning Online we also hold prayers three times a week at midday and a communion service on most Thursday evenings at 7.00 (this is changing a bit, check the FB page).
We are also doing our best to check on everyone in real life, please get in touch if you need any help!
