Leigh Road Baptist Church

We are a vibrant, growing church with a passion to see people's lives transformed and enriched by the love of Jesus Christ. Ask people what they think of church and you're likely to get the same response - boring or irrelevant, but at Leigh Road Baptist Church (LRBC) over 300 people each week enjoy a spiritual reality that denies both of these. LRBC is made up of all kinds of people: young and old, couples and singles, senior citizens, young families, older families, and single parents. There are people from all manner of trades and professions too. Although we come from different backgrounds, we have one person in common, Jesus Christ. Whether we know Him as our personal friend and saviour or are just looking into His claims and possible relevance to our lives. Welcome to LRBC, with people of every age and background in the congregation, Everyone is welcome.
