Fantastic, we love to welcome new people at Upper Eden Baptist Church. We aim to be a caring church, looking out for your needs. Our general aim is to try and help you get through life because we know how tough it can be. We don’t hide the fact we love Jesus and we want you to get to know Him for yourself.
We are a bible believing church in the Upper Eden Valley. To see our core values and the basis of our faith click here.
We have several different types of events you could come along to:
The Sunday Service is our regular time to get together as a church. We meet in the Baptist Church, Victoria Square, Kirkby Stephen at 10:30 am on a Sunday. If you come along you can expect to hear a 30min talk about the Bible, a short children’s talk, sing a few songs, prayers led from the front and to read the bible. The Sunday Service usually lasts about an hour. On the first Sunday of the month we have a time called “Communion” this is when Christians celebrate what Jesus has done for them. You will not be expected to take part and the person leading the service will explain what it means and what happens. If you have youngsters, don’t worry if they make some noise, that’s to be expected. However, if you feel uncomfortable there is space out the back from them to roll around or they could go out to Junior Church with our dedicated team of volunteers. At the end of the service, we will invite you to stay for refreshments (tea or coffee and a biscuit) so that we can get to know you better.
We run 2 Small Groups at UEBC Kirkby Stephen. The first is every Wednesday Evening at 7.30pm which takes place in someones home. So if you’re interested in coming along feel free to drop us an email and check. Our Small Group usually lasts an hour. You can expect 40mins of digging deeper into the bible and discussing with others about how it is relevant to our lives and 20mins of praying. During this time you can share something you may want prayer for, you can help support other people by praying or you can sit quietly, letting the evening’s session sink in. On the third Wednesday of the month, we have a Communion Service. This is a time for Christians to remember what Jesus has done for them. You will not be expected to take part but the session will run slightly differently, with less bible discussion and more prayer. We may also sing a few songs to help our understanding. Our second Small Group takes place every other Monday Afternoon in the church building at 1.30pm. This is a more relaxed, informal discussion based look at the previous Sunday’s Bible reading. We hope this group is a blessing to those who don’t like coming out on dark evenings or can’t make Wednesday’s or just prefer more informal bible conversations rather than a heavier bible study.
