We are a small, independent but warm-hearted and friendly group of people who enjoy meeting together to worship God. You too, are warmly invited to join us for any of our meetings. Christianity has been around for a long time and has stood the test of time: although in England church attendance has dropped; the church worldwide is growing.
There has been a Baptist presence in Ryarsh for nearly 200 years, and, like most churches, we have had our ups and downs. There have been times in the past when the building was full, and as is often the case today with less than 10.
Because of the age of the building and its height and the present church members so few we currently meet in a member's home.
Grace Baptist Partnership (GBP) are currently using the building and are hoping to revive the Baptist work in Ryarsh. The Partnership have exactly the same principles and beliefs as the present church.
The Eldership has a very high view of the Scriptures and therefore the Bible has a prominent place in all our various meetings. We aim to explain the Bible in a way that is both faithful to its message and also shows its relevance to all of today's needs for all people.
If you wish to speak to someone about the Cristian faith or have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact GBP as above.
Our current Elder of the present church, John Field (01622 718164) is also pleased to meet with and chat with you. Whilst we do not have answers to every problem, we will always try to point you in the right direction.
