Woolwich Central Baptist Church: Serving Our People

Sierra Leon: Kent Village Community

Woolwich Central Baptist Church and Kent Village Community, Sierra Leone have built an educational resource centre to encourage and support learning opportunities within this small African coastal village. This commitment follows the support we had given to the Kent community dating from 2005 by providing elementary school text books, exercise books, clothing, shoes and the like. The Church also provided a generator (there is no electricity supply in the village) together with multi-media equipment for teaching and entertainment. There are on average 150 pupils who attend the local nursery and elementary school; these children are among the poorest in Sierra Leone. The occupation of their parents is generally fishing or petty-trading with earnings that hardly meet the requirements of subsistence living. Supporting Kent village is part of the vision of Woolwich Central Baptist Church, to see God's Kingdom grow in Woolwich and across the world.

Mid Week Worship

Tuesday: Bible study groups, 10am to 11am

Bible study groups are a great way to not only learn more about God through the bible, but also a fantastic way to meet other people in the church. The groups cover a wide range of topics about living as a Christian.


Meeting People

Streetpastors: Friday evening

Woolwich Central and many other local churches in Greenwich are working hard together to start a Streetpastors scheme. Streetpastors offers churches and volunteers the opportunity to share a practical Christian faith on the streets of Greenwich.

A Streetpastor is a local Christian who is willing to care, listen and help. Streetpastors offer a friendly presence by listening to those out on the streets, young or old, seek to engage with people where they are and hope to build relationships with the local community in order to find out their needs and what can be done to help. Streetpastors are advocates of peace. Streetpastors also aim to connect with other local services, and offer a grassroots signposting service for those unsure of what local and voluntary services are available to them. If you'd like to be a Streetpastor in Greenwich, please get in touch

Children Ministry: Solid and Fun Introduction to Christ

Children Ministry

The chief aims of our Children ministry is to provide children with a solid but fun introduction to Christ. That means creating a safe but really enjoyable environment. Children are taught all about God and how to build a relationship with Him through the use of traditional Bible stories, arts and crafts, games, and drama.

As we are working with children, safety is a big deal. All safety guidelines set by the Baptist Union are met and we are always working on going above and beyond minimal requirements.

We are sensitive to children from all backgrounds whether that be Christian or Non-Christian. You will find us friendly and fun. Why not come along to one of your meetings to see how we can support you. Meeting times and details of the activities are below.


Come Visit Us: Sunday School

We have two Sunday School classes for children aged 3 to 11 (please see the Youth section if your child is over 11): a class for 3 to 6 years old and another for 7 to 11 years old. Each class is tailored to the age of the children. Each of the Sunday School teachers have worked with children for years and continue to undergo training on working with children. This training includes safety training like first aid but it also includes how to engage the children and tailor the learning to them.

Sunday School runs at the same time as the main Sunday service. If you would like to visit us, please come to Church at 10:30am on a Sunday morning and all the children will leave to go to Sunday School together.
