sowing seeds of hope in the community

Welcome

church

We are a group of local Christians in Stoneleigh, Epsom, Surrey, seeking to share the positive difference that Jesus makes to our lives, and to discover, together, more of the forgiveness, peace, love security and hope that He promises to His followers.

We're learning together how to trust Jesus in putting this into effect in our everyday lives, as we journey together.

We’d like to welcome you amongst us, and encourage you to walk with us for a while: we'd value your company and friendship.

Food Parcels for Zimbabwe

Much of Eastern and Southern Africa is in the grip of the worst drought for 50 years. We are supporting charities ZOE and Children Alone (with whom we have links) in donating money to pay for food parcels for orphaned families at risk in Zimbabwe. The parcels containing a month's food cost £35 each. If you would like to make a donation, envelopes are available for you to use and put in the offering. Cheques payable to 'Stoneleigh Baptist Church'. Sunday 1st May 2016 is the closing date for gifts. Thank you.
