Welcome to South Craven Baptist Church

We are a church with a heart to serve the local communities of Sutton, Glusburn, and Crosshills. Our mission is to reach out to people with God's love, and make a difference in the lives of ordinary people. We hope that our times of worship will allow people to draw closer to God and to one another.

We hope that through all we are doing we will make a difference in our community. A difference that will change the lives of people young and old alike. Over many years we have worked from a conviction that people matter to God and as a consequence they matter to us.

Rob Harris has been acting as our Interim Minister for the past couple of years as we journey through a time of transition. Rob has been a Baptist Minister for the past 38 years and has had pastorates in Coventry, Bilston, Hereford and most recently Skipton . He came north in 1997 and having discovered Yorkshire has no plans to move back south in the near future.

Please join us on a Sunday morning when we enjoy a contemporary style of worship and where there is always activities for children and young people.

In September 2017 we were pleased to announce the appointment of Laura Warren to the post of Ministry Intern. Over the next year she will be working alongside Rob, sharing in the life and leadership of the church. This will hopefully lead to Laura undertaking a modern apprenticeship in ministry and regional recognition.

Laura is married to Chris and they have a young family. Apart from being a mother and a housewife Laura is a professional dancer and has a degree in dance from Leeds University. Amidst all the busyness of life Laura also finds the time and energy to be an advocate for the charity Saying Goodbye.
