Welcome to Costessey Baptist Church Costessey Baptist Church on The Street at Old Costessey has been in existence since 1798. The red brick Chapel you see above was opened for worship in 1822. The Church is a member of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and supports the Baptist Missionary Society and Home Mission. Behind the Chapel is a cemetery and alongside is the hall which was opened in May 1969. There is additional parking on grass behind the Church hall. The hall is not available for external bookings while the COVID-19 restrictions are in place.
Our vision is to see God's Kingdom grow through a healthy Church living as a wholesome community engaged in relevant mission.
We witness to the love of God in sending his only Son Jesus to be the Saviour of the world.
We encourage people to live a life reflecting that love; in word, thought and action.
We proclaim the love of God that brings salvation through Jesus and a call to Christ-like living.
