Church Life and Values

Church Life


Our aim is to be a loving Christian community following the teachings of Jesus in a fresh, stimulating and relevant way, encouraging one another to grow spiritually and witnessing our faith in our lives to others as disciples in his name.  

Our aim is to be friendly but real with one another meeting weekly and keeping in touch during the week in a variety of ways to support and encourage one another. 

We all believe that a relationship with Gods Holy spirit gives us freedom, renewal, healing and a purpose, following in the life and teaching of Jesus is the most important thing in our lives leading to eternal life.

 Prayer is a very important part of how we function together, we believe  “A prayerful church is a Powerful church” and we share this message of hope to the world at the heart of all we do.

Serving our community is our expression of our love for others and we are very active in providing support in many ways, especially to alleviate social isolation in our rural community, we also serve in many different groups and clubs here in Bibury,  Arlington and further afield. Serving the wider world in prayer and missional giving.  

We are committed and governed by following the Baptist union of G.B. Declaration of Principle

Home Group

We have an active home group in the community. the group meets weekly on a Wednesday evening at 7:30pm, usually in a members house, but we use Zoom Meetings also when necessary.

We study bible verse and its relevance and how we can grow as a Christian, also providing a prayer time for one another.

Prayer and support in everyday life, crisis and beyond

Arlington Baptist Church has a strong belief in the power of Prayer, we actively pray every day, especially for our community.

If anyone would like someone to chat to and pray with, whether that be on the phone, email,  meeting privately at your home, as the whole church on Sunday or within our daily prayer circle then please call, email or come along on Sunday morning where we will welcome you.

We practice safeguarding when meeting together, which means there will always be two people to meet you. We encourage you to bring another member of your family or a friend if possible.
