Worstead Baptist Church takes quite a traditional approach to worship at our weekly Sunday service at 10.30am. We have a music group, led by our minister on the piano; and we sing a selection of old and new songs. Our fellowship is a prayerful one, and our ministry is based firmly on scripture. We are always encouraged to endeavour to live out what we learn from the Bible in our daily lives. Communion is an intrinsic part of our service on the first Sunday in the month: and takes a traditional format. Christmas, Easter and Harvest festivals are celebrated with songs that have been associated with those occasions for generations – and related Bible teachings.
At Worstead Baptist Church we value all age groups, including older people; and we value their right to choose a more traditional style of worship, if that is what they feel comfortable with.
Following the Sunday worship at Worstead Baptist Church we share a time of fellowship over refreshments. This is an opportunity to get to know each other better, to build friendships and for pastoral care to take place. Prayer ministry is also available at this time.
It is our desire at Worstead Baptist Church to see people come to faith, and also to encourage them to walk with Jesus and reach spiritual maturity.
During the winter months the service takes place in the lounge around a blazing fire. Come and join us.

The chapel serves the communities of North Walsham and Worstead as well as the sucrrounding villages. The original meeting house was erected in1717. At this time chapels could not be established within two miles of established anglian churches and thus the chapel is on the edge of North Walsham and Worstead. In 1829 the original meeting house was demolished and the present largerchapel was erected.
‘This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.’
The angel announces to the shepherds news of the greatest gift that anyone could ever be given: the gift of God’s Son - Jesus…
Royal princes and princesses are usually born in splendour, and surrounded by security. But there are no airs and graces about the birth of Jesus – God’s Son. God wants us to understand that Jesus is approachable, so that we can easily connect with him. Think about the significance of that for a few minutes… and then you might like to say this prayer.
Loving heavenly Father,
Thank you that you gave the whole of humankind the most precious gift that you could ever give, that first Christmas – the gift of your Son Jesus.
Thank you that you wanted him to be approachable; so that we could get to know him as a friend – and through him, to get to know you better.
This Christmas time, help me to really get to know Jesus – maybe to meet with him for the very first time – and to be able to get to know you as a loving parent.
In Jesus’ name.
