Our vision statement: Provoking faith in the heart of London

We are progressive in our theology, reverent in our style of worship, and active when it comes to social justice.
Those who find their home at Bloomsbury believe there is no one 'right' way,
but rather we search together for a deeper understanding of Jesus and what it means for us to follow him.

We aspire to be inclusive and accessible.

We are a member of the Inclusive Church Network.
We believe that Black Lives Matter and are committed to becoming an anti-racist community.
Recognising that gender is not binary, we welcome people of all genders.
We are registered for the solemnisation of marriage for both mixed-sex and same-sex couples.

We are a centre for preaching

Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church is known internationally as an historic preaching centre,
and our most recent sermons can be found under the 'Latest' section of our website.
