Here at West Lane Baptist Church, Haworth, our Sunday services are the heart of our life together. We are drawn together to find hope and encouragement, spiritual resources for the real task which begins at the conclusion of our service – that is of bringing life in all its fulness to our community.
We are a progressive church with a strong desire to serve our community as an expression of God’s love for all people. We welcome all people regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or any other pigeon-hole label! In 2016 we registered our building for Same Sex Marriages and this is now just an ordinary part of our life.
We gather to celebrate our faith, and life on Sundays at 10.30 am. We are a community of Christians, trying to understand just what it means to follow Jesus in our context. We are a member of the Yorkshire Baptist Association, the Baptist Union of GB and the local Churches Together group.
Our Sunday services are designed to make you think, smile and be challenged. We hope to “comfort the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable”. We meet Sunday mornings at 10:30am, and people will be just inside the front door to welcome you just after 10am. Our Sunday morning service has a mixture of sung worship, prayers, bible readings, a sermon and more. Part way through the children will head out to their own groups, apart from the 3rd Sunday of the month when we have our family service, where everybody stays in together.
Our building is old, but we have tried to make it as accessible as possible. There is level access into the building, we have a stairlift, disabled toilets and a wheelchair to borrow.
