Welcome to the Seaton Baptist Church web-site. For us Church is not about buildings, but is about being a group of ordinary, friendly people - family - part of God's family, commited to seek and to serve God and one another in Seaton and beyond.
As we are a 'Church without walls' when we meet each Sunday morning at 10:30am we borrow our walls from Seaton Primary School. We would love to meet you and welcome you to our times together.
To find out more either contact us or explore our web-site a little more.
Seaton Baptist Church was established in 2005 and grew from a small home-based group of people to the thriving fellowship it is today. In the early days the fellowship became known as a church without walls - a term that was originally used as it does not own a building. However it came to reflect the outward-looking nature of the church and its drive to be active in the community, aiming to reach those who may not otherwise attend church or hear the good news of Jesus Christ.
We gather each Sunday at Seaton Primary School to thank and praise God for his love for us through singing, we share stories of what God is doing in our lives, we ask help from God and our friends when things are tough. We pray for our town, our country and the world. We explore the Bible together as we yearn to discover more about God and his Kingdom plans. We share what God have given us as we give of our time, talents and money for his kingdom purposes. We gather together around a table like his disciples did to break bread and drink wine to remember our Lord Jesus. We do all these things together ensuring that all ages are looked after, sometimes together, sometimes in age appropriate groups. We share this time with anyone who desires to join us regardless of their beliefs or faith.
We believe passionately in partnership in the gospel and as such:
Seaton Baptist Church meets every Sunday at 10:30am @ Seaton Primary School.
We would love to welcome you to our informal times of worship, teaching, prayer and praise. We always finish with a coffee & cake or biscuits at about 12:00pm.
Details of any Special Events are usualy displayed on our Facebook page which is shown above.
As a Baptist Church we have a leadership team that is accountable to the Church Meeting. Our current leaders are:
Ben is our Minister.
Frank, (Church Secretary) who is semi-retired.
Chaz, who runs a local care home.
Tim, who works in IT.
Craig, (Treasurer) who runs a local Christian guest house.
Neville, who is a retired maths teacher.
Like the Pebbles on Seaton Beach that feature in our logo, we are:
Seaton Baptist Church is not a Church, we are the Church, a family to belong to not a members only club or a building to attend, and so we are mobile. We are a gathered group of people of all ages who are together discovering what it means to centre their lives on Jesus Christ. We have discovered that we are not here by accident but we are precious to God.
Each of us was created unique and designed by our heavenly Father to have a relationship with him. Each one of us has a story to tell of how we have been shaped by the world and by the love of God in our lives. Many of us are weathered and bear the scars of the storms of life, yet we have found a safe and protective place to allow God to minister his healing love through the hands and hearts of others. As we unite around the purposes and plans of God we can together have a powerful influence for good in the lives of our families, friends, the community in which God has placed us and in the wider world. We are not complete, we continue together on the eternal adventure of faith and by God’s Spirit continue to be transformed.
The food bank is a local store of non-perishable food and other essential items overseen by Christians together in Seaton and District and operated by volunteers from in and around the community of Seaton. It is made available to those who are in ‘food crisis;’ that is, people who have no food and no means with which to obtain food. Need is assessed by professionals from local partner agencies and local church leaders. We do not supply food on direct request to the food bank.
Entirely by donations from local people to collection points in Tesco, The large Coop, Seaton and District Churches and Seaton Town Hall. The Foodbank relies upon the support of local people to keep running. Without your support we have no money, no food, and no food bank!
If you would like to contribute then you can put food contributions into the collection boxes. Financial contributions are welcomed please contact us via the email form on this contact us page and select Foodbank or at:
