Now 'virtually' - The Place to Be

Keyworth Baptist Church

One hundred years ago on 12 October 1918 a young, 18 year old Private from the Manchester Regiment died on a French battlefield. Unfortunately, like many others, he has no known grave, but his name is etched for ever into the honeyed stone of panel 9 at the Vis en Artois military cemetery 6 km south east of Arras. He was Fred Heeley, my father’s older brother. I visited the cemetery about twenty years ago. I think I was probably the first member of the family to do so.


In September 2010 KBC welcomed in a new member - Elaine Blundell, our Minister in Training. For the next three years Elaine's time was divided between days in college, studying at home and ministering at KBC. We've watched and seen her grow in confidence in her new role. In 2013 we invited Elaine to become our full-time minister. She's been a familiar smiling face around the village and in our three junior schools.

This Sunday, 10 June, Elaine will be taking her final service at KBC, and it goes without saying that we will miss her and are thankful for the way in which she's brought God's presence into our lives and community.


With immediate effect, all face to face acivity at Keyworth Baptist Church is suspended in compliance with the Government announcement to cut out all non-essential activity to slow the spread of Covid 19.

However, we'll be increasing our online activity to encourage, spread cheer and comfort to those who are shut away in our community.

You are in our prayers.
