Who comes to Bovey Tracey Baptist Church?

Anyone and everyone is more than welcome. Bovey Tracey Baptist Church has a very mixed community from a variety of backgrounds and ages and all worship freely together.


How many people attend?

We have a membership of 117 but 130 people reguarly attend our Sunday morning service. Fewer people attend the Sunday evening service and it is a much more initimate informal environment.


What happens at your services?

With the exception of baptisms or special events such as Easter and Christmas we follow a fairly regular outline. Our services include:

  • A time of worship as we sing songs ranging from the new to the slightly more traditional (led by our music team)
  • A time of prayer, for those in our church and in the wider community
  • We read the Bible together and listen to a sermon (15-20mins) led by the preacher.
  • Every 3rd Sunday of the month we share communion together

How Long are the services?

Our Sunday morning service starts at 10:30am is usually one hour and a quarter aiming to end at 11:45am but you are more than welcome to stay for refreshements after the service. Our Sunday evening service starts at 6:30pm and is one hour.


Will I be expected to do anything during the service?

No. Nothing to fear. Whilst a number of our congregation do take an active role in the church we want Bovey Tracey Baptist Church to be a non-threatening place for any visitor and you will not be asked to do anything that you are not comfortable with.


Do you collect money during the service?

Yes.  We feel that giving money to God's work in this church is part of our worship, but this is the responsibility of our regular congregation and there is no obligation. Please feel free to let the money bags pass you by during the service.


Can I bring my children?

Of course! We are a family church and children are more than welcome. If parents are comfortable, then the children are free to go out to an age appropriate group during the teaching part of the service, but they are equally welcome to stay with their parents during the service.


What is the dress code?

We don't have one! We want you to feel comfortable so just come as you are.


Can I park at the church?

The church doesn't have any parking but those with limited mobility can be dropped off outside the front doors. Parking is available for free along the streets surrounding the church and there is ample available. The car park outside the nearby day nursery is pay and display.


Do you have provision for people with disabilties

Although there are steps leading to the front door, wheelchair access can be found to the right of the main entrance - follow the path to the door at the end and enter there. We have a 'T' loop system for those with hearing aids.


How can I get involved?

First of all please make yourself known to Mark or any of the leadership team when you come to visit. If you decide to reguarly attend and wish to take part in the services or other church activities please see Mark, you would be more than welcome to get active in the running of our services and there are so many ways you could serve.
