About Us

We would like to introduce ourselves to our friends and neighbours in the town.

The Thaxted Baptist Church dates back to 1813 and moved to its present site in 1834. We aim to be a warm and loving church with a strong family atmosphere where everyone is made to be feel welcome. We are dedicated to displaying the love of Christ both to each other and equally importantly to all our neighbours in Thaxted. In addition to our Sunday service we also offer the following:

  • A men’s breakfast on the first Saturday of every month.  As well as enjoying good food and meeting new friends it is also an opportunity to hear speakers from a wide range of backgrounds and interests.
  • “Coffee and Company” . We know that the aftermath of bereavement is a very painful time for people and so on the last Saturday of each month we invite those who are grieving for whatever reason for coffee and cake  just to share friendship with people in a similar situation.
  • The Ladies Choir meets fortnightly on a Monday evening to sing for pleasure and fun. They sing songs from the 1930”s onwards including songs from the Broadway shows.  No previous experience is necessary and the only requirement is a love of singing. The sessions start at 7:30 pm
  • A coffee morning is also held every Friday from 10:30am to 11:30am. This is followed by bible study from 11:30 to 12:30
  • We meet every second Wednesday for Fellowship at 2:30pm for light refreshments and to listen to a speaker.  All are welcome whether Christian or not
  • We also meet for prayer every Wednesday morning at 11am.            

We would love to welcome you to our church or indeed to any of the events listed above. Any questions please call us on 07948495704 or email us via our contact page.
