Help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words

Matthew 28:19 (AMP)


to West Grange Church


We have taken the decision NOT to reopen on Sunday 5th July, but are working on it, so for the forseeable future we will continue to have "Church Online", Prayer Meetings via Zoom and weekly updates via the Welcome Sheet (Connected), 

  • We are seeking to source hand sanitiser and signage.
  • We need to rearrange chairs and hence find out audience capacity.
  • We are writing procedures for safest entry and exit of building.

We know it will not be possible to.

  • Hug and shake hands as we meet together for the first time in months.
  • Have any singing.
  • Have any food or drink
  • Offer transportation to and from church.
  • Have no classes for children.

When we do eventually open the procedure will be.

  • On arrival you may have to queue to apply hand sanitiser before entering church. We are only using main hall.
  • A one way system will be in place. Entry by front door into church, and exit by fire exits at front, repeating hand sanitiser before you leave building.
  • If you are single person find a single seat at the front, if all taken move back a row to the next available single seat.
  • If you are a household pair same procedure but finding twin seats. For a larger family group chairs must only be adjusted by designated helper.
  • To reduce risk, take your seat, socialising is more safely done outside after the service.
  • We are shortening the service to ¾ of an hour.
  • Please keep exits clear and chat safely in carpark or grass, social distancing guidelines still apply.
  • The toilets will be cleaned before the service and will be monitored throughout opening. If you can avoid using them that would be helpful, but needs must.
  • A person will be designated cleaner for the day. 

If you have symptoms of new continuous cough, high temperature, loss of taste/smell.

Stay at home. Seek advice from NHS 111. Who may ask you to get a test.


We are a small local church situated in the Belle Isle/Hunslet area of South Leeds and run mostly by volunteers. We are an independent evangelical Church, with no affiliations, however we are made up of people from all walk of life, predominantly from ‘evangelical’ denominations. We meet in our own building and have been ministering to the area from our current site since 1968. We added an extension to the building in 2012.


In the 1940’s the minister of Hunslet Baptist church lived on East Grange Drive.  A new council estate was built opposite and members of Hunslet Baptist invited children to form a Sunday School.  The work grew rapidly and the Rev. C Wooster asked for a smaller house and the manse became a mission of Hunslet Baptist which led eventually, May 1953, into East Grange Baptist Church.

Due to being inundated with Baptist Union material we became an independent fellowship.  Yorkshire Baptist Association were gracious to us in allowing continued use of the former manse.

Across the main Road on West Grange Garth, land became available to us.  Through the guidance of God, sending a qualified building manager to lodge with a church member, West Grange Church was built and opened in October 1968.


The Bible says that "God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that however believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16)

  • We exist to tell people in our surounding area about the love that God has for them which is so perfectly displayed in Jesus.
  • We believe God has a plan through West Grange to accomplish this.
  • We believe God is looking for a people who are willing to take on this challenge.
  • We believe Jesus is the answer for the problems in South Leeds.
  • We believe that God is going to move and we are going to see the fruit of many years of labour.


  • In the complete inspiration of the Bible.
  • The unity of the Godhead - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • The sovereignty of God in creation, providence, and redemption.
  • The fall of man making the new birth necessary.
  • That the Lord Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man. His virgin birth. His real and perfect manhood. His work of atonement for sin by His vicarious  suffering and death. His bodily resurrection and ascension. His great priestly intercession.
  • In the justification of a sinner solely by grace through faith, by the atoning merits of our Lord Jesus Christ
  • The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit in regeneration, conversion and sanctification.
  • The priesthood of all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • The personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ in glory.
  • The resurrection of the body; the judgment of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ, with the eternal blessedness of the righteous.
  • The eternal punishment of the wicked.
