Supporting as a Church

Very early on, the Church registered with the Foundation Sanctuary to provide support.  We are also in close contact with the Salisbury Hub to see how we can support on the ground in Wiltshire. 

In the past we have:
Sold sunflowers made by the livelyhood programme in the Philippines to raise money for Ukraine. 
We have planted sunflowers and asked for donations to raise money for Ukraine Bright KidsUkraine Charity.
We continue to ask for specific items needed by our local families.

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello to Downton Baptist Church

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When?

We meet at our Church in South Lane, Downton, for our Sunday Service starting at 10.30 am. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team and Duty Stewards.

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits following our service.. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. 

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is a disabled toilets.

Our Service

The Sunday Morning Worship service begins at 10.30 am with a warm welcome.
During the service there will be a time of sung worship, led by our band.  There will then follow readings from the bible and a talk about what we have heard.  There will be times of prayer.
Please ask if this is new for you and would like some support.

We are pleased to say we have a programme for our young people and everyone is welcome.

Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At an appropriate moment,  the young people will be asked to go their various groups.  You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy. 

Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.

Lots more going on

As you explore the website you'll find an active community involved in the ministry of the church all week.  Take a look around and please get in touch if you would like to know more.
