We next meet together at the Potternewton Centre on Sunday 21st January 2018 at 10.30am, when we also welcome David Robinson from St Matthew's, Chapel Allerton.
It's the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, so we're doing a "pulpit swap" (ok, we don't even use a pulpit, but... !).
Originally a congregation planted from Moortown Baptist Church, we met at Chapel Allerton Primary School from 1994 until Summer 2017. Having outgrown the space available at the school, we have now moved our Sunday venue to the Potternewton Centre (Potternewton View, LS7 2DW).
Back in 2002, we became an independent church. In 2008 Hannah Dey joined the church as our cross-church youth worker, and as of 2013, Chapel A has two ministers: Simon Hall & Robin Thomson.
Sundays at 10.30am in the Potternewton Centre are a mix of band-led worship, teaching and ministry with a coffee break part-way through. There is a range of excellent Sunday Club groups for children and young people, and a relaxed style which seeks to take account of modern living and expresses the truth and challenge of the Christian message.
Occasionally we change the format of our Sunday meeting - especially in the summer holidays - and have brunch or go out for part of the day together, instead of having a central meeting.
We work with the other churches in the area to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to this community. Jesus came to demonstrate and share God's love: we are here to continue to discover, live out, and participate in that work.
We welcome everyone to our church.
Chapel A is a member church of the Yorkshire Baptist Association and the Baptist Union of Great Britain.
