Now 'virtually' - The Place to Be

Keyworth Baptist Church

We mark 'new beginnings' in a rich variety of ways, from simple acts to elaborate ceremonies - from sending a card or planting a tree to a wedding banquet. The key aspects of however we mark our new beginnings are joy and celebration.

A fundamental part of following Jesus and building a relationship with him in the here and now, is marking the commencement of this new relationship, this new life, with the act of baptism.

I'd like to invite you to our service at 10.15 on 8th March when we'll be holding a baptism service for adults. This is a celebration where someone makes a public declaration of their relationship with Jesus. It is rich with the symbolism of dying to oneself and rising to new life in Jesus, as the person allows themself to be covered in water. We'll have a special pool of water for the service.

For anyone wishing to take part in the service we're running a series of baptism preparation sessions through January and February.

Jesus said, "I've come so that people might have life, abundant life!"

However you started this New Year, I want to assure you that Christians across the village are praying for your personal well-being and the health and strength of all parts of our community. For we believe and know that our loving heavenly Father is deeply interested in transforming the lives of each person here.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his nameshall be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

The expectations on Jesus were staggering. But he really did bring peace - peace with God. The Prince of Peace would give his life in place of ours and because of his death, we have a life that will never end.

Peace may feel like a faraway concept for you this Christmas. Maybe you feel despair at the political landscape, perhaps your family are at loggerheads, or maybe you are just overwhelmed by the demands of life.

This Christmas, join us at church, spend time with the Christ-child and experience the peace he offers.

Here's a run down of where we'll be this Christmas: on Sunday 8th we'll be thinking about the Shepherds and considering how God sees (notices) us; on the 15th we'll be with Christins from across the village at the URC church at 10.30am for a joint nativity service; on the 22nd we'll be holding our fun, all aged Carol Service at 10.15am at Keyworth Primary School; you'll catch us on Christmas Eve carol singing in the village and on Christmas Day we'll be leading a joint service at the Methodist church.

We look forward to meeting you at any of these gatherings. 



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.
