SBC is a small but well established Baptist church in a popular middle class market town, with good facilities. We are known for being welcoming and hospitable and have a history of reaching out in youth and children’s ministry, although our outreach in recent months has been more effective with our older community contacts.

We believe we are called to be a new expression of the traditional Baptist church, combining familiarity and challenge as we seek to reach out to the local community and beyond.

We have a well-supported leadership of Elders and Deacons, and encourage everyone to be actively involved in some aspect of church ministry.

We believe that Bible-based teaching coupled with encouragement to step out into ministry is essential for the fellowship at SBC to strengthen and grow.

Our worship style spans a broad range of eras and we make the most of current limited musical resources.

Missionary focus continues to be a priority. We support named overseas missionaries and desire to be actively involved in local outreach, which to date has been addressed by seeking to establish relationships through shared social interests.
