Newbold Baptist Church

Located in Rochdale about 15 miles north East of Manchester, Newbold Baptist Church is a lively charismatic Baptist Church. With an 80 strong congregation, our church has a membership of people of all ages, from tiny babies to ‘Great’ Grandparents in their 80s. Creche, Explorers, Discovery and Young People’s Fellowship cram 20 – 30 kids in each week who are very much encouraged to be part of the church today. We enjoy a family atmosphere with people from many different backgrounds and walks of life including travellers, those from Asian, African and European countries and those who travel from neighbouring Oldham! We all have Jesus in common.

Our church is on the edge of the Newbold estate, which is in the top 10% of most deprived areas in the UK, so we have a number of social outreach activities to interact with the local community including a long running playgroup, a 1.30 Club for the Over 60’s and a Kidz Klub for those with bundles of Saturday morning energy. Litter picking, town centre evangelism and connections with the local businesses gives us chance to chat to people about what goes on in the building with the funny shaped roof!

Our mission field doesn’t stop on our doorstep, with missionaries in Romania and China and many other connections all over the world.

Coronavirus Statement

As elders, we are in full agreement that meetings, if held, would contradict government guidance and this is a step we are reluctant to take. Therefore, until further notice, all gatherings are to cease with immediate effect. Our responsibility is to try to best look after those under our care and we want you to be safe. The government has highlighted some vulnerable groups which need special care at this time and we are keen to provide exactly this in every way possible.
Alternative arrangements are being worked on and we will issue fuller information for the church on our Quiet Times page in the next few days to advise of these provisions. Thank-you.

YPF - Fishers of Men - The Movies

What if Jesus had this response when he first asked his disciples?

As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him. more >>
