We are meeting in person and online for Sunday Worship.


We are collecting for Chelwood Foodbank regularly on a Saturday morning between 10 and noon. 

The Foodbank would like to say a huge thank you to everybody who is donating.

Grove Lane is a unique community of individuals, a liberal church run on the true baptist principle that every member has an equal say. We have the community, justice, the world and the love of God at our heart.


Many of our membership believe that being a Christian isn't just about Sunday worship but is about being active in our community so at the core are the groups we run during the week: our Day Centre catering for the elderly; our Toddler group for Parents/Carers and their children; and our Youth Groups for Children and young people aged 5 – 18. Our groups and organisations are run with a wide variety of volunteers who are an essential part of our community.


We are a church which doesn't offer a fixed view of religion or spirituality but “meets people where they are”; discussion, debate (sometimes friendly disagreement) aren't just welcomed – they are an essential part of who we are and what we do.

We are a campaigning church on issues such as justice, fairness, liberty and equality. We are committed to including all, and resisting discrimination on the basis of colour, age, disability, gender or orientation.


We are proud to be registered to perform marriages of all kinds (including same-sex since 2014), we are firmly committed to marriage equality.


Our minister, Ruth, works three weeks a month. You can learn more about her by reading her blog: Ruth's Ramblings.
