Hawkshead Hill Baptist Church
The chapel is open at most times so that visitors can call in to make themselves a Fairtrade drink as well as enjoy its peace and quiet. The grounds behind the chapel consist of a graveyard, garden, prayer room and outdoor baptistry. Seats are placed around the grounds.
Services are held at 10.30 each Sun. These are carefully planned but are informal by nature and participation in prayer or comment is welcomed. We aim to provide a service which is suitable for all ages. The chapel buildings include a guest room with self-catering accommodation, which is suitable for any who want a short stay in a Christian environment.
Open all the time
Occasional private use.
