thorpe baptist church about us


The Church

Thorpe Baptist Church was established in 1802 and had a full refurbishment in 2005 making it more suited to today's needs but retaining its charm and character. Set within its own grounds which are lovingly maintained providing a pleasant walkway and entrance to the building.

Once inside, you will receive a warm welcome. Our services are varied and include songs led by guitar and piano. We also have a sound and media system which can be used to show videos.

Our Minister and Vision

We are now searching for a new minister.


We believe that a church’s vision should be:


  • A place where Jesus is central to everything

  • A place where worship is focused on God and not ourselves

  • A place where prayer is focused around the church’s vision

  • A place where fellowship is inclusive and no cliques are recognised

  • A place where concern for those who don’t know Jesus is essential

  • A place where God’s word is taught, heard and obeyed

  • A place where differences can be dealt with in biblical ways

  • A place where gifts and talents are valued and used

  • A place where a commitment to the World Church will recognised


Our purpose is to:


  • Worship God

  • Make and grow disciples for Jesus Christ

  • Meet the needs in our community
