Cullompton baptist Church

We are local people from all walks of life who love Jesus and have found a real joy and purpose in life. 

We are not only Christians on Sunday but we encourage each other to live out our faith through the week, whether this is at work, in the home or enjoying leisure activities with others.


The church seeks to serve the community and we are pleased that a number of organisations in the town meet in our church premises.


This verse has always been special to me as an individual. We must remember that this verse was written in the first instance to a Church.

As I begin my 11th year, I feel it offers some encouragement for us all right now. The last 10 years have seen their fair share of joys and sorrows. We have lost a number of good saints and are gaining new ones just when we need them most.

It was always my desire to build a healthy Church, fit for mission in the heart of Cullompton. My strapline has become: "Cullompton Baptist Church, the small Church with a big heart in the heart of Cullompton. I absolutely believe this to be true and that is down to you. 

I also wanted to encourage other smaller Baptist Churches in our area. Moderating at Bradnich and helping out at Uffculme has helped in that endeavour. 

But what next for us? I believe year 11 is about three words: re-set, re-group and restore. 

Sunday 9th June is what I have called "Re-set Sunday”. Apart from an encouraging sermon, three other things will happen. First, an invitation to pre-service prayer. I will be in the vestry each Sunday from 10am to pray for the service and the life of the Church. Everyone is welcome to join me for as long or as short as you like. 

Second, prayer and Bible study on the go. We all lead busy lives. Meeting together is difficult. Each fortnight from the week commencing 9th June, I will send out a link to a 10-minute video from me containing a Bible reflection, two response questions, a prayer point and a link to a piece of music. Please either use this material alone or with friends.

Finally, multi-voiced planning. As Baptists we believe in the priesthood of all believers not Ministerial rule. I may be the Captain trying to plot the course and make sense of the map, but you are my crew. Speaking up at meetings is not always easy. To this end a permanent suggestion box will be placed at the back of the Church. You can put into it things you would like to see in the life of the Church, Bible verses the Lord lays on your heart and prayer requests. These will be looked at by the Deacons at each of our meetings. Also, a number of folk since Good Friday have expressed without prompting from me to be part of a way forward group. If anyone would like to be part of such a group, please let me know.

There is so much to take in. Please read this piece several times to take it all in. Only the Lord knows where this will lead.

As we step out into deep waters, may we know the Holy Spirit being the wind in our sails.

Yours in Christ.
