About Tilehouse Street Baptist Church

What kind of church are we?

We have about 50 members with an average morning congregation of around 30. We have a long history with records dating from 1669 and a chair in the pulpit given by John Bunyan, but we are a modern-day fellowship. We seek to worship and serve God in ways relevant to today and also to be an inclusive church, welcoming and affirming all; regardless of ethnicity, sexuality, gender or social standing. Read about our history on the History Page.

What are our services like?

Sunday Morning Worship
Remembrance day service

Services last about an hour and are open to all. Our services have a sense of order and include hymns and songs, bible readings, prayers, a sermon and, twice a month, Communion. Singing is accompanied by the organ, and/or piano.

When are they?

Sunday services are at 10:30. You can find out who is leading worship by consulting the diary page. Sometimes we have a joint service with one of the other churches in Hitchin. Again details will be on the diary page.

Coffee, tea and squash are served in the hall after the morning service on the first and third Sunday of the month - bring your own mug or cup, please.


We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of the month and on the third Sunday in the month in an afternoon service at 16:30. This is a sharing of gluten-free bread and non-alcoholic wine served to the congregation in their seats by deacons or other Church members.

Village Church at Stondon

We have a daughter church in the nearby village of Stondon (Bedfordshire).
