Who is Knaphill Baptist Church?

The Family of the Church

Church FamilyKnaphill Baptist Church can be described as a small, but growing church and our membership comes from all walks of life, and all ages. We share one common bond, the fact that together we make our church.

We know how hard that first visit to a new place can be, for the seasoned Christian looking for somewhere new to worship it’s not easy, but for the first time visitor taking those early steps it can seem monumental. Our prayer is that you will find us open and accepting, no matter who you are or where you have come from.

As a Baptist church we are part of the local association of Baptist Churches, the South Eastern Baptist Association, a member of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and we work closely with the Anglican, Methodist and Catholic churches in the village.

Our Minister

who nextKBC is currently without a minster.

Our previous Minister Julia Binney left us in October 2018 to take up a role at Abbey Baptist Church in Reading. The church doesn’t stop without a minister, and we are really thankful for a number of local friends who have already agreed to lead our worship, whilst the Deacons continue the important role of leading a guiding the church.

In due time we will appoint a moderator to help mentor the Deacons as they start to seek Julia replacement.

As in all things, we await Gods guidance!

Deacons

Along with the minister, deacons take the primary responsibility for day to day management of the church, spiritually, financially and practically. In Knaphill, they’re closer to the role introduced in Acts 6 where “Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit; also Philip, Procorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas from Antioch” were selected to look after the practical matters of the fledgling church. They are elected from the members of the church to serve for three years, two are further elected to serve in the key roles of Secretary / administrator and of Treasurer.
