About

Bridgwater Baptist Church has a long history, having been founded early in the 17th Century.

We base our faith and practice on the Bible and the teaching of Jesus Christ. We practise believer’s baptism by immersion and communion is open to all.

We are linked to the South Western Baptist Association and the Baptist Union. We also have links with mission workers in Nepal through BMS World Mission.

The Building’s History

The first chapel on this site was built in 1692 behind a row of cottages.

That chapel was demolished in 1837 to allow the building of a larger and more imposing structure.

The cottages were demolished in the 1850s.

Over the years there have been some additions, alterations and improvements, but the building is still very much used by various community groups as well as the church.

The large hall and the toilets have recently been refurbished and modernised, and there is also a good sized kitchen.
