Springfield Park Baptist Church


Welcome to Springfield Park Baptist Church, Chelmsford

Ask people what they think of church and you are likely to get the same response - boring or irrelevant, but at Springfield Park Baptist Church (SPBC) over 120 people meet each week to enjoy a spiritual reality that denies both of these.

Springfield Park Baptist Church is made up of all kinds of people, young and old, couples and singles, senior citizens, young families, older families and single parents.

There are people from all kinds of trades and professions. However, though we come from different backgrounds, we have one thing in common - each of us has experienced a transforming encounter with Jesus Christ.

With people of every age and background in the fellowship .... everyone is welcome.

Whether you are a regular Church goer or it’s your first time, you are very welcome to join us on any Sunday for Worship, Fellowship and of course, tea & cake!
