Welcome to the website of Forest Gate Baptist Church. We are a friendly and welcoming group of Christians of various ages, and would be pleased to see you at one of our Sunday Services, special events or at any of our groups. Please feel free to contact us if you would like further information or would like to know more about the Christian faith.

We are very sad to tell you that our minister and friend, Rev Steve Bond, known to everyone as "just Steve", went to be with his Lord on Sunday 21st August, after a long and courageous battle. Steve really enjoyed his "Messy Church" and always planned everything and encouraged everyone from the start. We plan to carry on, before too long, the excellent and exciting times that we all shared with him.

A thanksgiving service for Steve's life was held on Friday 2nd September, and the church was full of Steve and Tracey’s friends, many of whom had travelled from all parts of the country.

Donations in his memory can be made to the Trinity Hospice or Operation Christmas Child (Shoebox Appeal). Money can be given to our Treasurer, Liz, who will pass it on. Donations of goods for the shoeboxes are also welcome. Thanks to everyone for your support.
