Great Missenden Baptist Church is a small and growing church in the centre of the village of Great Missenden. We strive to provide ministry which helps every person to grow in their relationship with God, wherever we have come from and whatever our experiences have been. Our emphasis is equally on mission as we serve our local community as well as supporting groups nationally and internationally.

We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds, recognising that we are all different and yet equally valuable to one another and to God.

Our worship style is a mixture of some traditional hymns and more contemporary worship and we have are really pleased to developed a small worship group which enhances our ability to worship God together.

We have a large and flexible building which is well used by many groups in the area. It is our desire to be a hub of the community, giving use of the building to as many people and groups as possible. Please email or call us for details of our halls and rooms.

Our members live in Great Missenden, and also in several of the surrounding villages and hamlets.

We are a member of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and are within the Central Baptist Association.

Our Mission

lightstock_262778_full_helenWe take seriously the greatest commandment: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Along with the equally important commandment; Love your neighbour as yourself.

With this in mind we aim to be lights in the community, in praising God for his love to us and growing our relationship with Him, and in showing the love of God through word and deed to everyone we meet. We offer all that we have and do – including our Sunday services, our study-groups, our prayer groups and our buildings – to bless those who come to our church, and to bless our community in showing them God’s love.

Our Vision

visionTo know God and make Him known.

In all our fellowship together, our aim is to be in relationship with God through the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We do this through bible centred preaching and teaching; through prayer in various different ways; through bible study groups and in our relationships with one another, with our local community and groups around the world.

I took on the role of Treasurer in 2006 and play piano in our music group. I have 3 grown up children and my interests are classical music, choral singing and my allotment from which I supply most of the members with courgettes, strawberries and beans throughout the summer.
