Welcome to Folkestone Baptist Church

Sharing God’s love with the community


We’re glad you came to visit us here. We are a group of ordinary people who are followers of Jesus. We have discovered that God love us and has invited us to be his friends. Out of his love flows our conviction that we should ‘love God, love people and make disciples’. We meet together every Sunday in our two centres at Hill Road and Capel Street. We gather to worship God, learn more about our faith and encourage each other. There’s always a chance to chat over a cuppa. You would be welcome to join us any Sunday.
