Any messages left for help and/or prayer, will still be picked up as normal, and the office will be contactable as normal.

We are still very much active during this time. The Church building may be closed, but God isn't. You can find our recent services below (or on YouTube).

We have children's activities happening every 2nd and 3rd Sunday of the month during the service.

We finish our time together after the service with tea and coffee and sometimes all stay for some lunch for some great church family time.

You are welcome to come and join us on a Sunday, we would love to see you there!

Children's and Families

Here at Boscombe Baptist Church we prioritise welcoming and celebrating children and young people! We aim to give families a sense of belonging, providing various opportunities for support and encouragement, specifically through engagement with community focused programmes and activities

Sunday Morning - Here is our current monthly children’s programme:

1st Sunday – All together

2nd Sunday – Sunday Club (side hall, ages 2-11)

3rd Sunday – Sunday Club (side hall, ages 2-11)

4th Sunday – All together

5th Sunday – All together

  • “All together” – For these weeks we invite and encourage all ages to engage in worship together. We try and include creative ways to interact in a way that’s intergenerational.
  • “Sunday Club” – twice a month we have a children’s group. We still begin our services all together for a time of prayer and sung worship, then the children leave before the sermon (approx. 11am). Each week we explore a different part of the Bible together, with activities to help us understand how we can live out what we learn. We also have a time of games and fun challenges. Our current team leaders for this group are Julie Holmes, Rachael Sawers and Julie Richinson.



Our main youth group, Ignite, is on every Friday during term time from 6.30 - 8.30pm.

(Sadly group is not running  for the moment but keep checking here for updates)
