Costessey Baptist Church

During the COVID-19 pandemic, no public worship services are being held.

 Costessey Baptist Church remains closed for public worship. The government guidelines and guidance from the Baptist Union of Great Britain are being used to help plan for the future. 


 Church is happening in other ways. Pastor Peter Lillystone is recording Bible messages on YouTube so you can see and listen to this in your home. We continue to encourage one another by phone, email or letter.

At this time of national and international crisis, our faith is in Jesus Christ, who experienced suffering and triumphed over it. We can pray for all those who have been bereaved and those who are ill in hospital or recovering at home from the effects of the COVID-19.

Pray for all who are working hard to provide essential services.

Pray for all who are making plans to reopen schools and colleges to new and current pupils/students in the autumn term.

Pray for the well-being of children and young people who have missed social contact with friends at this time.

Pray for wisdom for those with responsibility in making decisions about easing lockdown.

For many in the retail and hospitality sectors, COVID-19 closure has had a massive impact. Pray for those facing uncertainty about jobs and what happens next.

The Bible says: "Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you." 1 Peter 5 verse 7

Church of England freephone message


 There is a freephone service called "Daily Hope" which is provided by       the Church of England. The call is free so anyone can make use of this,   particularly useful to people who may not have access to the internet.

 This could be a way to bless elderly relatives and friends who can listen   on speaker phone so it feels there is someone else in the room.     Please try it yourself so you can explain how it works.
