International Women’s Day event at DBC

We are delighted to be hosting an event for International Women’s Day at Didsbury Baptist Church again this year. International Women’s Day is, of course, 8 March but the event being held at DBC will take place this Saturday (7 March) between 2 and 4 p.m. Details below:



An evening on the Communion of Saints

Saints evening 500x

This is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (18-25 January). To celebrate this, we are to host an evening on the Communion of Saints on Tuesday 20 Jan at 7.30pm. All are welcome to attend what we hope will be an open and ecumenical conversation. Brian Haymes and Richard Kidd, co-authors, with Paul Fiddes, of Baptists and the Communion of Saints will help us to think about a neglected doctrine not usually associated with Baptists. Please join us if you can and bring your questions!

We will eat at 6.30pm and meet (promptly) at 8.00pm. If you are planning to eat with us, it would help if you let us know ahead of time. If you are turning up for the worship, please arrive a little early (say, by 7.45) so that we can start the worship on time – there will be a cup of tea or coffee going if you would like one before we start. The worship themes will be as follows:

Wednesday 3 December:
Watching and Waiting

Wednesday 10 December:

Wednesday 17 December:
Darkness and Light

On Wednesday 24 December we will hold our Carols by Candlelight service at 6.30pm; we would love to see you there.

Ernie Whalley to visit DBC

On Sunday 19 January, Ernie Whalley, President of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, will be our guest preacher. He will participate in our service of worship for all ages at 10.30 a.m. He will then speak and lead some discussion in our second session at 11.45. He will speak on Like stars in the universe (Philippians 2) and help us to think about living as Christians in contemporary society. At 12.30 there will be a bring-and-share lunch. If you are a member of our congregation, we invite you to bring some lunch; if you are visiting, just come along and enjoy! Please join us for part or all the programme on Sunday 19th. If you are arriving for the second session, please be aware that we serve tea and coffee from about 11.15; you would be welcome to arrive at any time during our coffee break – and enjoy a cup of coffee with us.

Advent at Didsbury Baptist Church


We are now in the season of Advent. We mark this at DBC by lighting Advent candles during worship every Sunday of Advent and on Christmas Day.

On the Wednesdays of Advent (4,11 and 18 December) we will gather for a meal at 6.30pm followed by study and prayer at 7.30pm. Our topic will be The Christmas story as told by Matthew. We will be reading Matthew chapters 1 and 2 over the course of the three weeks. Please feel free to join us on any of the Wednesdays  for the meal, the study session, or both. We look forward to seeing you.
