As you will see from the media, July 19th is being described as Freedom Day. Whilst we are very excited about getting back to normal, this is to recognise a slightly different perspective.
From Sunday 25th July you can come to church without the need to make a reservation. Singing is also allowed from that date, so we will be singing (we have some great hymns planned!).
We recognise that masks, registration, social spacing and sanitising are not a requirement in law after July 19th, but I would ask you to consider not just how you feel but how others may feel too. Masks are about protecting the other as well as yourself, so I would ask you to consider still being willing to wear a mask as an act of Christian love particularly when you are in a crowded space when entering and leaving the building. Paul writing to the Corinthian church in 1 Corinthians 10:23 says ?“You say, “I am allowed to do anything”[a]—but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is beneficial.”
There will be additional chairs back in the church from the 25th July. If you feel you would rather sit away from other people, that is absolutely fine, and we will try to enable this to happen. For many of us we cannot wait to be back together but please also be aware that for some people sitting apart from others is their choice so please give them space. There will also still be hand sanitizers around the church, and we would encourage you to still sanitize your hands as you enter and leave the church. Let us remember, although the guidance has changed, the virus is still present in the community. Let’s be willing to sacrifice where needed.
Finally, a huge thank you to all who have continued to give financially to the church during this Pandemic. As a church our deficit has been kept low because of the faithfulness of people in the church who have continued to give sacrificially. My prayer is that the church will continue in its mission to enable people who do not know Jesus to know the real “Freedom Day, ” “For Christ sets us free!” (Galatians 5:1)
The church meets every Sunday at 10:30am for our Morning Service, and at 6:00pm for our Evening Service.
The physical address is:
There is some parking available on the site, behind the church. On Sundays mornings their is free parking at ASDA, next to/behind the church and on municipal parking ground diagonally opposite the church.
You can expect a warm welcome, great worship, a thought provoking message and a friendly bunch of people gathering to learn more about God.
We have a fantastic programme for the kids for ages 0–12, and a fully engaging youth program. Children and youth stay with their grown-up at the start of the morning service as we worship (sing songs!) together for the first part of the service. The speaker will make it clear when and where children need to go for their programmes. You will need to go with your children and register them. The kids will have great fun playing games, and learning about God in a way tailored to their age group.
If your child has an additional need or finds the regular groups difficult to engage in, then we have Kingdom Kids Amaze which runs on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. The groups are visual, fun, engaging and have a high ratio of support
At Romford Baptist Church we welcome every child and want for them to be a part of all aspects of our church life. We take the well-being of every child as of primary importance. We therefore ask that parents and carers to advise us of any particular needs their child may have, including behavioural issues, allergies and medical conditions.
After the main meeting finishes there may be opportunity for prayer otherwise free tea, coffee and biscuits will be served in the foyer.
Please come and join us!
