Redevelopment Update

  • Redevelopment Update
    We have just 4 months left until completion. Work continues in earnest behind the scenes. Please visit our HBC Facebook Photo Album for the latest photos of the redevelopment.
  • HBC Community Centre
    Making both the church and premises to be a key part of the local community has been a significant part of our plans from the outset of our redevelopment project. Those plans were key to us receiving planning permission and we are dedicated to those plans. As such we are establishing a Village Hall/Community Centre Charity which will make our premises available to the wider community. For more information visit our website homerton.london or our Facebook Page.
  • Homerton Blend Café
    As Part of our redevelopment project our new premises, situated on the East side of Hackney, we will have a community café providing a high quality offering in line with leading brands, whilst also meeting the needs of local community and offering a place to meet. For more information visit our website blendcafe.london or our Facebook Page.

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, Hackney.   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

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"
