Introduction to HBC:

We are an independent non-denominational Grace Baptist Church and have been in the area of Homerton, Hackney (East London), since 1817.   We hold to the teachings of the Bible as expressed in the Baptist Confession of Faith 1689 and Baptist Affirmation of Faith 1966.   The church has used the current site since 1962, having previously been sighted in Homerton Row.   We view ourselves as very much part of the community and have had the opportunity during the London 2012 Olympic Games to hold a number of community events.

"We have an average weekly attendance of 80+ of which 64% are local residents, 60% are under the age of 35, and 11+ nations are represented."

We extend a warm welcome to local residents, living in Homerton and Hackney as a whole, visitors and holiday makers to join with us for our services each Sunday, and weekday events.  Full details of these are provided under 'Services' in the menu above.

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. — Heb 10:24-25
Homerton Baptist Church 1962-2016

We cater for families, couples and single people providing a warm, friendly, and welcoming family environment.  We are a multi-ethnic congregation with representatives from Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Europe, and South America. We however view ourselves as members of a single family of God. One demonstration of our unity as a family is that in our weekly after church fellowship we celebrate the birthdays that arise in that particular week. So you will most likely get a slice of birthday cake if you come and join us one Sunday.

"Visiting HBC felt like being welcomed into a family"

We are currently in a redevelopment phase and so are meeting with our sister church in Stratford. Please visit our Sunday Services page for more details.

"Services provide a clear and helpful explanation of the Christian Belief"
