Our Sunday morning service begins at 10:30am, and on the first Sunday of each month we hold a special all-age family service suitable for all ages. On the other weeks, we invite children & youth to join our Creche (0-3)Causeway Kids (4-11) and Hype (11-18) groups.

What is Baptism?

What we believe

We believe in baptising those who make a commitment to following Christ. The church is affiliated to the Baptist Union of Great Britain, and a member of the Eastern Baptist Association, which enable us to learn from and contribute to God’s mission for our area, our country, and internationally.

Children & youth

We host a variety of different groups throughout the week for children and young people of all ages. There is a Toddler group for those yet to start school on Wednesdays, and on a Thursday evening we have two groups for young people – Rock Solid (school years 5 & 6) and Boulder (school years 7 – 11).

Various groups also meet on a Sunday, including Causeway Kids, Hype and Phenomenon. We also have a Creche for babies and toddlers during the Sunday morning service.

Site development

We have recently decided to investigate the option of redeveloping our church site and buildings to better serve the community in future, inspired by the work of other churches and the future of our mission. One of our buildings needs continual repair and the site altogether is unable to meet all of our growing needs.
