It is with great sadness that we have decided to close West Grange Church following the Coronavirus government advice. However new problems present new possiblilties so we are using technology to continue to meet and stay connected. We are using Zoom conferencing and also have started streaming a service Sunday evening at 6:30pm - click on "Church Online" to watch previous services, further info and contact form.
We will be publishing any further updates through our Facebook page and here, so do follow us on Facebook if you can.
We have a church Buddy system in place and if you would like to join this then please get in touch using the contact form or the messenger system within Facebook - especially if you are lonely or feel vulnerable.
Despite all this we are going to continue to try and perform our mission of telling people about Jesus and as a church we will continue to pray for this situation - if you would like specific prayer then let us know, because prayer changes things! God is sovereign and in control, and we pray for his protection and peace.
Remember to follow the goverments advice which is published on the NHS website and regularly wash your hands to keep yourself and others safe.
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)
