Verse Of The Day

“He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted.” (Isaiah 53:3-4)  listen to chapter

Welcome to Old Roan Baptist Church

Old Roan Baptist Church is a community of around 150 people of all ages including children and young people and from a wide variety of backgrounds. Together we are discovering how to follow the example and teaching of Jesus in our 21st century world. This means being connected to God through faith in Jesus, connected to one another with real love and connected to our community in the real world.

We know it's next to impossible to live this kind of life without the encouragement and support of others so we meet together to celebrate God’s goodness, to discover more from the Bible about real and genuine Christian living and to pray about things that really matter in life.

On Sundays we hold our largest gathering at 10.30am the Hope Centre in Aintree Lane. This when the whole Church family meets together and is a time of celebration and hearing God's Word. It is for people of all ages with lively activities for children and young people.

During the week we meet in a wide range of small groups around the area. It's in these smaller groups that we really get to know one another and discover the strength of journeying through life with friends who pray for us, support us and challenge us to live out our faith every day. We also have groups where you can enquire about the Christian faith and social groups.

We believe the Church is meant to be part of the wider community and be good news for society as a whole. So, at the Hope Centre we run many community activities and work in partnership with charities and missions locally, nationally and overseas. That is why we run Parents & Tots groups, Cafe Hope (our own coffee shop), relevant courses to help people through life eg Divorce & Recovery Course. The Alzheimers Association, Stroke Association and MS all have groups meeting at the Centre alongside numerous other groups from the community.
