Who We Are
Ventnor Baptist Church is part of the Baptist Union of Great Britain. This brings support, nurture and encouragement as we seek to fulfil God’s commission to take the good news to all nations. This is expressed in our commitment to Home Mission, B.M.S, and involvement in the activities of the Southern Counties Baptist Association. We also join with the other Baptist churches on the Island for joint events for training, worship and evangelism.
As part of the wider body of Christ on the Island we are also committed to working with churches of other denominations and none across the Island for the sake of the Gospel.
Inspired by Isaiah 61, we believe that our work is primarily outward-looking seeking the transformation of Ventnor in every respect of life. Our calling is to touch the lives of those who are in need, the hungry, the hurt, the lost and lonely, with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We want all who meet with Jesus to grow up in his likeness.
How We Worship
We are very informal in our worship and welcome the presence of children including during Communion. There is a creche, and for children up to age of 11 activities are available after the opening time of worship.
We celebrate Holy Communion on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Sunday and ALL who have faith in Jesus Christ are invited to share this celebration with us.
After morning worship we serve tea and coffee and invite visitors to stay and enjoy fellowship with us.
