South Ashford Baptist Church

A friendly growing church on Brookfield Road

If you need help with things.....

We understand life can be difficult and circumstances very challenging on occasion. However, please note that we do not give out food or money from the church premises. 

That does not mean we don't care, though, or don't want to help you. We have extensive local contacts and are able to refer you on to those who can help. Sometimes this is via the Willow Centre Children's Centre behind us, sometimes, it is via other local churches who operate social action projects. Also, below you will find a list of agencies which can help:
