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.
  • A coffee morning is also held every Friday from 10am to 11:30am. 
  • Humfrey Lodge.is a service is held at Humfrey Lodge old people's homeom the first Monday of each momth from 10:30 to 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 07889 758285 or email Jim Ford on jford15@aol.com
