Wolston Baptist Church

A warm hello from Neil and everyone at Wolston Baptist Church

Wolston Baptist Chapel -
A short history

We begin the story of Wolston Baptist Church in about 1792, when the dominant issue in Europe at that time was the French Revolution. It wasn't a good time to be speaking out against the establishment, so when two ministers, Revs. George Burder and Jonathan Evans, and a baronet, Sir Egerton Leigh, came preaching the gospel in Wolston, they were viewed with some suspicion.


 

A guide to our activities

Whether you’ve just moved in to the village or been here for years, we’d like to invite you to join in the activities here at Wolston Baptist Church. Whoever you are, and whatever your background, we’ll make you most welcome.

 

We have a range of activities throughout the week that will suit different ages and interests, and we also have social events throughout the year: concerts, meals, skittles evenings and so on. This booklet gives details of the regular meetings but you will also find information in the monthly village magazine, the ‘Avon Grapevine’.

The church is easy to find, very conveniently located right in the village centre, opposite the shops. There are steps at the front, but the entrance at the side gives easy access to those with mobility problems or who use walking frames or wheelchairs.

Hopefully you will find everything you need inside, but if you need further information call us on the numbers below.
