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

Matthew 28:19 (AMP)

welcome

to West Grange Church

We are open!

We invite you to join us every Sunday morning in person from 11am.

There are many reasons for wanting to be back together again, not least, to worship Jesus because of his costly love to us and to be a “fellowship of difference – a rugged commitment to someone, to be with someone, and to seek with that someone to become CHRIST- like together.”

 

For the foreseeable future, we will only be publishing the sermons themselves online as we believe -

  • That we need to encourage the breaking of the habit that has been formed over the past year watching the full services online.
  • It is biblical. The portrait of a vibrant community of believers is found in Acts 2:42-47 and Acts 4:32-35.  To quote a verse from each section

    “All who believed were together…”and “the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul”  (2v44, 4v32).  Their critics said of them “These people have been turning the world upside down” Acts 17v6.

Last Sunday Service - Talk Only

Today we had Iain Cunningham talking to us on "The Church, a wonderful collection of people". We were reminded that the Church is made up of many diverse people and that that is how God designed it should be. Just like members of a body each of us has been given gifts, talents and abilities by God to help His Church (the body) to function, grow and develop.

OUR HISTORY

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.

OUR VISION

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.

OUR BELIEFS

  • 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.

WHO WE ARE


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 walks 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.
