About Us

When Jesus was asked what was the most important commandment his answer was "Love God and Love Others'.


That remains our commitment as Jesus followers today, that in all we do we strive to love God, others in our work life, home life and Church life.

Ernest Street Baptist Chapel is an active member of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and we hold to the beliefs and the values of the Baptist union. Scroll down to meet our leaders

Love...God and Others

As Jesus followers we have a great message to share with people. We show what God is like when we do so through both our words and actions.


As we share life with others, whether over a meal, in a conference, or out doing sports we are a physical testimony to God.


Share...Faith and Life

Jesus tells us to "go and make disciples". These words encourage us all as Jesus followers to help people grow in faith, to live out their faith and to be people who are actively growing with others in our love and understanding of God.


Growth. Our lives being changed and renewed is something that God wants for us, and expects from us Faith Together
