More locally we are members of the London Baptist Association (LBA) where we are in the East Surrey District

In South Croydon we part of the Croydon Churches’ Forum (CCF)

We are also members of the Evangelical Alliance (EA)


What We Believe

What we believe forms the principles that guide us and influences the way we live out our lives. That being said, BRBC is affiliated to the Baptist Union of Great Britain and to the Evangelical Alliance and is in agreement with the doctrinal statements of those two bodies, which are as follows:

We believe

We believe in the divine and full inspiration and authority of the Holy Scripture as the supreme and sufficient rule of faith and practice, and the duty of the believer to engage with the Word of God.

We believe in the unity of the one true God who lives eternally in three persons—the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the fall and the sinful state of men and women – without Christ – incur divine wrath and judgement.

We believe in the sacrifice of Christ on the cross, dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil

We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.

We believe the justification of the sinner is by faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ; a faith that works by love and produces holiness

We believe it is the work of the Holy Spirit that leads us to Christ, unites us with Christ through new birth, makes us holy, brings spiritual revelation, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.

We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ according to his promise to fulfil the purposes of God.

We believe in the baptism of believers’ by immersion. Whilst baptism is not essential to Salvation, believers’ baptism is an act of obedience to the Lord’s will and required for completeness of discipleship.

History of Brighton Road Baptist Church South Croydon, South Croydon Greater London

Our History

When a young woman living near Croydon opened the door of her home to a small girl in 1869 she set in motion a train of events, which led to the establishment of Brighton Road Baptist Church (BRBC). BRBC celebrate its 123rd anniversary this year. The story is told in an unusual history of the church published to mark the centenary of the church in 1994. The small girl covered in dust, asked for a glass of water.

The young woman, a Mrs Buckwell, had recently become a Christian and so took the opportunity to tell the child a story about Jesus. She invited the girl to come again, bringing her friends, and so a Sunday school began. Soon the numbers outgrew Mrs Buckwell’s small cottage and an iron hall was then built in Purley Downs Road. Not long afterwards a London City Missionary, Walter Schwind, came to the district and joined forces with Mrs Buckwell.

A Sunday morning children’s service was started which while retaining its character resulted in a number of baptisms.

In 1894 Miss Rebecca Watney gave the buildings and the site in Trust for Baptist work and BRBC was formed, the stoned building we still use for worship was completed in 1901. This story behind the founding of the church was included in a manuscript prepared by Mr Schwind in the 1920s in which he told the history of the church’s first thirty years. This was later published by the church as an elegant little book, illustrated with old photographs, to commerate the church’s centenary.

It was a simple act of kindness by Mrs Buckwell, which led to the formation of our church.   Edit
