Welcome to Springfield Park Baptist Church, Chelmsford
On advice from the Baptist Union and the government we have cancelled all church activities and Sunday worship at 10.30am until further notice due to the coronavirus outbreak.This week's Sunday service for 12th July may be found by following this link. You can make the video clips open in full screen mode by clicking on the square icon at the bottom right of the picture after clicking the video to play it. Please read the page and scroll all the way from top to bottom so you don't miss anything and respond in the comments where suggested. Why not also take another look at last week's 85th anniversary service and the encouraging comments that may have been left since you last viewed the page?
We are hoping to begin live streaming when we can go back into the church for services, and will advise of the details here in due course.
IEM Food Aid Project
SPBC has been supporting IEM for a number of years. The coronavirus and the need to isolate has given rise to this urgent need for aid in India among the communities IEM already support.
You can find out more about this and how to donate on our IEM Food Aid Project page.
Need Some Help?
If you are self isolating and struggling to get by we may be able to offer some practical help.
Use our request form here to give us your details and one of our volunteers will contact you.
Please note we are only able to offer help within our local community of Trinity Ward, Chelmsford.
Who are we?
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!
As advised in the message above all regular activities are cancelled until further notice. Please check this page regularly for updates. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible...

We are part of Chelmsford 24-7 Prayer, joining with Christians from across our City to pray for the things God lays on our hearts. Please follow this link for more information about how you and your church can get involved: https://chelmsford24-7.org/. Plans for the near future at Springfield Park involve the setting up of a new prayer space and prayer walks around our local area. Watch this space for developments.
