In 1688, twenty years before the completion of St. Paul’s Cathedral, Lymington Baptist Church began helping its community to live well. Although a lot has changed over the last 300 years, many things have stayed the same, not least the challenge we all face of using our one and only life well.

We have been in our current building on New Street for well over 150 years and in the last few years have purchased the building next door, which serves as offices and meeting rooms. We have two full time Pastors and a huge team of volunteers to help us deliver that which God is calling us to.

We have a unrelenting desire to be a blessing to the community in which God has placed us, so as well as our regular Sunday services in church and our packed life groups which meet in homes midweek, we have many activities which you can come and be a part of.

Parent and toddler club

On Monday mornings we run Hullabaloo, a parent and toddler club that provides a vibrant, safe and creative environment where everyone on our team is committed to nurturing the whole child: socially, emotionally and spiritually.

Inexpensive two course lunch on Mondays

Also on Mondays, Grace Café provides an opportunity to enjoy an inexpensive, high quality, two-course lunch with a whole variety of people who will be delighted to see you and whose company you will enjoy.

Youth club

Rock Solid is a Friday night, high octane youth club where 11-15’s can enjoy all the stuff they love: games consoles, football, pool, table tennis and a well-stocked sweet shop …as well as discovering the difference Jesus can make in their lives.

And lots more...

Once a month on a Sunday morning we have Messy Church, an opportunity for children of all ages and their parents to gather for breakfast, enjoy loads of fun activities and then hear about Jesus in a fun, relaxed and creative environment.

We also have a Christians Against Poverty centre, which brings hope by offering a solution to those in debt through its unique, in-depth, confidential and free service. Through CAP we are seeing lives turned around and those in seemingly impossible situations finding lasting hope and freedom.

In addition to these we have many other things going on, including practical courses to help you live well and an array of fun social activities where you can really build strong, lasting relationships with others.

So why do we do all of this?

Our vision is to bring glory to God by showing the supremacy and worth of Jesus Christ. We want to show how great God is by demonstrating the absolute sufficiency and value of Jesus.

We believe that the answer to life, the universe and everything is found in the person and work of the historic Jesus who lived in the Middle East during the opening decades of the first millennium. We believe that because of Him we’re able to live well; having meaning, purpose and significance irrespective of our circumstances: no matter how the markets perform or whatever the news from the consultant or however our relationships turn out.

We’re excited to be able to share with you some of the things we’re doing to help people to live well.lbc_interior_180.jpg - 30.25 KB

We have opportunities for men and women, young and old, parents and families; for those in need and for those who have plenty, for those who believe and for those who don’t. All we do is designed to help you to know the reality of Jesus and the practical difference He makes. Our mission is to help you to know and follow him.

I hope this short article gives you a flavour of who we are, what we do and why we do it.
