Our vision as Crofton Park Baptist Church is to “Build Bridges, Build Community and Build Disciples”
We build community
…through our Sunday services, small groups, and social gatherings. Our members are active in various community organisations, including Lewisham Foodbank, Lewisham Street Pastors and LEWCAS. We also build community by supporting global charities such as Chance for Childhood, Tearfund and Compassion UK.
We build bridges
…with our immediate community through Welcome Inn, Rainbow Drop In Baby & Toddler Group and our Youth Club. Another way we build bridges is through partnering with other Christian groups. We do this by being actively involved in Brockley Churches Together, Joint services and initiatives, and Global Day of Prayer Lewisham.
We build disciples
…through our teachings on Sundays and our various groups throughout the week. These include a theological group, Bible study group and spiritual formation group. In addition, we have a Sunday School and youth groups for the younger church. Evening prayer gatherings, intercessory group and prayer ministry are all enhancing the spiritual growth of the Church.
Our church is led by our Assitant Pastor, Rev Fran Bellingham and our board of Trustees.
The board of Trustees are Helen Bogle – Church Secretary, Earl Legister, Mark Bostridge, Robin Collett and Clement Oke – Church Treasurer.
Helen Bogle is also our Church Administrator and can be contacted on 020 8314 1813 (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (9-11am) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
