We are a close knit
friendly fellowship located in Dagenham which is in
East London. We are
passionate about sharing the gospel with our local
community. If you are looking for a friendly, welcoming place to
worship God or simply want to find out more about Christianity, who God is
and what He thinks about you then you've come to the right place.
None of us are perfect... but we know a perfect God who is
interested in each individual human being He created!
Our Church came into
in 1929 when the
Becontree Estate (once the largest council housing estate in the world) was
for the families of soldiers who had served in World War 1. In the 1960's
was launched (click

all four of Dagenham's
Baptist Churches join together under
the guidance of the
Reverend J.J. Brown. The scheme came to a
end in the 1970's when the four Baptist Churches
whilst continuing to support and encourage each other as
each church seeks to
serve God in Dagenham.
a new church building
in 1964 and
church building became
our Church Hall.
The hall is now in regular use by our church organisations which help bridge
between the Church and our local community. The hall is also used
in a very limited way by
as a community resource (e.g. local councilor surgeries).
As already said, we are a
small, caring and friendly fellowship devoted to serving God.
Sunday morning services
has a fellowship age range of about 3
90 years). Worship is
fairly traditional in style with a mixture both old and modern songs taken
from “Songs & Hymns of Fellowship”.
Songs and readings are projected onto a screen with hymn books and
NIV Bibles also available if required.
With family life at the heart of our outreach, we hold family services
on alternate Sunday mornings with Childrens'
Church providing separate time and space for our young ones
on the other Sunday mornings. The morning services
are usually recorded and available to download (see below).

OUR FUTURE~ is
unknown to us but known by God.
By faith, we believe that He reveals His plans and mission for us in
His way and in His time. Our focus is always to
seek to follow God's leading and serve the people of Dagenham by bringing
the Good News of salvation to our community.

Our hall is NOT available for hire to the general

Baptist Union of Great Britain
Eastern Area Baptist Association
What we believe:
We believe that God is
"three in one"...
God the father
who made us,
loves us, has good plans for us and longs for us to know Him as our loving
God the Son
is Jesus Christ, God's eternal Son
who perfectly shows us God's nature and character.
God the Holy Spirit
is given to his followers by God the Father and Son to reveal the truths of
God, Jesus and the Bible.
About the Bible:
We believe the Bible is God's inspired word and the key to understanding
God's perfect plan for us... His special creation "Your word is a lamp to
my feet and a light to my path" (Psalm 119.105). We place a strong
emphasis on discovering the practical relevance of the word of God in our
spiritual, personal, family and social life.
The Bible explains that believer baptism by full immersion is the public
demonstration of an individuals personal response to an individuals
acknowledgement of being imperfect (a sinner) and having repented of those
sins, and accepted by faith that Jesus took upon himself the punishment for
those sins committed and accept Jesus as their personal Saviour "Repent
and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the
forgiveness of your sins" (Acts 2.v.38).
Our Mission Statement:
“We exist for God, taking the good news of Jesus to those in our community,
sustained by worship, Bible teaching and the loving support of each other”.
We believe that everyone (young, old or vulnerable) who is connected to the
life of this Church has the right to both feel and be safe. We have
therefore adopted the Baptist Unions Safeguarding policy
to help us ensure the safety and well-being of everyone for
whom we feel a responsibility both in our worship and weekday activities.
