Founded in 1955 by local Baptist Churches, who wished to serve the people of Bennetts End, we are a growing church
with a lively Evangelical congregation. Average attendance is 50 - but you can count up to 80 people at the all-age service
normally held once a term on a 2nd Sunday of the month. We currently have 40 people who have been welcomed into membership.
Belmont Road caters well for children and young people- and so we should with well over 80 connected with the church.
Currently you'll find activities from Toddlers to Teens where spiritual and social development are key.
Adults, too, are well served - we have 3 house groups, plus Alpha and a basic enquirers' course known as 'Just Looking'- which
run upon request. Seniors enjoy food and fellowship at our weekly Luncheon Club and holidays away twice each year, often
supplemented by a 'Holiday At Home' event.
As a church, we believe there should be no barriers for people who have special needs. Wheelchair users can access through the
side door and use suitable toilet facilities. We also operate a hearing loop system.
Our main meeting day is, of course, Sunday and we are led in a mix of contemporary and traditional worship, featuring guitar
Preaching is carried out mainly by our Minister - Rev Garry Jenkins, a northerner with a down-to-earth and relaxed style which
is Biblically based.
We have a vision to show 'Passion for Jesus and Compassion for Others' and we seek to meet this through: Devotion to God;
Declaring God's Purposes; Discipling God's People and Demonstrating God's love. This is worked out in our regular church life
and our daily lives as Christians. We want to grow in each of these areas and have put in place a strategy and structure to help
us do just that.
The church has several trained Counsellors and a Prayer Ministry Team and Pastor Garry is always available to talk.
