Join us tonight for our Friday night prayer meeting at 7:45pm!

See our Church online Prayer section for conference call details and prayer points.

We know a number of people experienced difficulties when trying to connect last Friday. This was due to high demand on our service provider.

Information from BUGB website

National Day of Prayer broadcast – 7pm Sunday

Friday 20 March

1.03 am

Dear church family,

Following the new government guidelines and having sought advice from the Baptist Union of Great Britain (BUGB), we have decided to suspend all our usual services and activities for the safety of everyone.

Closing the building does pose challenges and we’ve been discussing and exploring new ways that we can remain connected and support each other at this time. The situation regarding COVID-19 has changed very quickly over the last few days so we ask that you bear with us as we seek to put things in place.

This website will be the place to get the latest information. We know not everyone in our community is online so we ask that you help to pass this information on to others who could miss out.

On the website you can already find most of our talks from past services, including the most recent ones, which you can listen to at any time. You can request a talk to be put on CD for anyone who is unable to listen online.

We are planning to have a weekly reflection area with a Bible reading and prayer points.

The church now has a YouTube channel!

We are hoping to begin to use this to provide a simple service or sermon in the coming weeks. Again, please bear with us and continue to check the website for updates.

We ask growth group leaders to think of ways that their groups can stay connected. Do contact the church leadership if you need help with that.

If you are struggling for any reason at this time, feeling low, isolated or vulnerable, or know of someone who may be, please contact us.

Call 020 8689 4527 (leave a message if necessary) or email the leadership via office@westcroydon.com and someone will get back to you.

Though the church building may be closed for a season, we must remember that the building is not the church – we are! Now more than ever we need to come together as a community to support each other and be the hands and feet of Jesus to those around us.

‘Trust in the Lord always, the Lord God is the eternal rock’. Isaiah 26 v4

 God bless.

Wed 18 March

Following the latest government and Baptist Union of Great Britain (BUGB) advice, all services and groups at the church are suspended until further notice.

Many of our past talks are available for you to listen to at any time.

Please check back here for updates and information.
