Welcome to Bonny Downs Baptist Church
a beautifully inclusive community
"Seeing Jesus changing lives and transforming our community"
We've been worshipping & putting faith into action in East Ham
for over a century.
In 1998 we set up a charity to share God's love and blessing with everyone in our community https://bonnydowns.org/
During winter months we gather at The Well Community Centre
49 Vicarage Lane, East Ham E66DQ 10.30-11.45am
organised kids' groups, craft space for adults, lively worship, relevant teaching, and refreshments before & after our gathering.
from May & over the summer we are a Garden Church
in the community garden Flanders Field 10.30-11.45 (gates on Flanders, Wellington and Melbourne Rds) for worship, prayer, a short reflection and communion. All ages meet together and there are supervised craft tables for children.
We are rebuilding our old church site to be an Urban Abbey
We have planning permission & are fundraising.

Bonny Downs is an officially Inclusive Church:
"We believe in inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate,
on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health,
physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes
and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally
faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation;
and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how
wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ."
We are a registered CIO Charity #1197719, and affiliated with the London Baptist Association.
We love our annual summer camp
