Holland Road Baptist Church


We usually meet on Sundays and Thursdays. At the moment we are doing lots of online meeting up!

Sunday Mornings
We really hope that the young people in our church family are able to join in with the live-streamed service at 10.30 on a Sunday morning. Two of our young people have designed some sermon notes and you can find them here: Sermon Notes Version 1 and Sermon Notes Version 2. If you don’t have a printer at home let us know using the form below and we will post you some.

Staying connected
Parents will have received an email from Helen about joining an HRY WhatsApp broadcast group. Please reply to this email and provide yours and your young person’s mobile number if you would like to join this. We won’t bombard you with WhatsApp messages, it’s just a way of reminding you and your young person what’s coming up. We’d also love the young people to fill out a short survey to tell us how they are finding the lockdown and how we can best support them at this time.


  • Every Monday we have a new weekly challenge. This week is a church-wide challenge to find a memorable way to remember the memory verse (1 Thess 1:3). Maybe you could come up with something as a family to send to Jonnyh@hrbc.org.uk
  • On Tuesday we are starting a new idea to encourage our young people as they pray. Each week we will send, via the WhatsApp broadcast group and via Instagram, a Bible verse and prayer and a prayer action. We are hoping this will help the young people relate the Bible to their experiences and feelings and regularly direct their thoughts to God in prayer.
  • On Wednesday this week’s Encounter Podcast is uploaded at 7pm
  • This Thursday we are taking a break from Youth Alpha for a more social time and we’re welcoming back those we haven’t seen for a few weeks. Our HRY Zoom will have a fun filled hour of games, a challenge activity and a devotion. Please see the email sent by Helen on the 26th May for the Zoom link and password.
  • This Sunday is Pentecost, where we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit to the Church. Do join us for the livestream service at 10.30am. If you would like to get involved in any aspect of our time together on Sunday, do get in touch, we are looking for people to help with readings, prayers, dance cam, drama and production. It’s a great way to encourage our young people to serve and to connect.

Going deeper:
The church’s vision is to raise the next generation and one of the ways we do this is through mentoring.  This is an opportunity to meet with a friend and an adult to help encourage faith to grow. Groups meet regularly to chat, study the Bible, answer questions and pray together.  It’s an opportunity to share life experiences, have a laugh and learn from those with a bit more life experience.
