About Us


Shirley Baptist Church is a vibrant church made up of Christians of all ages and backgrounds. Our aim is to bring glory to God as we apply His Word (the Bible), in the power of the Holy Spirit, to every aspect of our lives, words and actions.  Our strapline of ‘Passion for God, Compassion for People’ is worked out practically in four main areas:

  • Welcome – shown to everyone who comes through our doors

  • Love – reflecting the unconditional love that Jesus lavishes on us

  • Challenge – aligning our lives under the spotlight of His Word

  • Grow – recognising that we are all on a life-long journey of being transformed into the likeness of Jesus


The church is affiliated to the Baptist Union of Great Britain and is a member of the Evangelical Alliance. We also enjoy fellowship and partner with other local churches in various events
