Welcome to the website of Paignton Baptist Church, a warm and friendly fellowship meeting in Winner Street in the centre of Paignton. We hope that we will soon have the opportunity to meet you.
We aim to be a church for people of all ages, abilities, and circumstances. We are called to share the good news about the Lord Jesus Christ with everyone in our local community. We are convinced that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, and that no-one comes to the Father except through Him and it is this conviction that inspires us to reach out to people with the love of God alongside other churches in Paignton.
Please let us know if we can help you in any way. You can call our Pastor Stephen or our Church Secretary Mark on the telephone numbers above. Alternatively you can email us at:- firstname.lastname@example.org
Coronavirus Latest Our intention is to continue to provide a welcoming and safe environment for both our existing congregation and visitors to meet with God and His church when we gather together for services and other events. The threat of the omicron variant has resulted in the government requiring that masks must be worn at all times and especially while entering or leaving, and attendees are requested not to move around once they have arrived. However, HMG have also said that "there is a reasonable excuse exemption which allows people to remove a face covering during singing."
Please see the Announcements (welcome>announcements) page for details of Sunday morning services, and of Friday Coffee Mornings. After-service refreshments on Sunday mornings which had resumed will not be available on 12th December. Other meetings continue at present, but watch this space and the Calendar for updates.
We are aware that some of our congregation would benefit from a greater sense of protection and so on the balcony we maintain a two seats gap between households and face coverings are to be worn at all times.
We will be reviewing all these arrangements regularly and if you have any suggestions, questions or concerns do please let one of us know.
Keeping in Touch Please ask Mark Ryan for our weekly prayer and newsheet either via email or post.
We record our services. Find these by going to "Services" (in the bar at the top of this page). Click on the "play" arrow at the left end of the black strip. The text of our services is available by email or in the post.
