Bishop’s Stortford Baptist Church (BSBC) is an active, vibrant group of Christians who meet regularly together to worship God, hear from his word and spend time with one another in fellowship.

BSBC is a family. The church is not defined by where it meets, rather it is defined as a family of believers, committed to Christ, to one another and to the service of God in the world.

During the Covid-19 pandemic our Sunday services are posted on our YouTube channel at 10.30am.

BSBC is part of Baptists Together. BSBC is a Fairtrade Church.
