Kelso Baptist Church is currently meeting at 10:30am on Sunday in Abbey Row community centre (post code TD5 7BJ). We are meeting in room 4 which is upstairs (there is also a lift for those who wish to use it). For those not familiar with the Centre, it is behind the Knowes car park where you can park and come through the gap in the wall, or you can enter at the front of the centre where there is also disabled parking. Join us on a journey of renewed mission with Jesus and you will meet with a warm family type atmosphere, being made welcome as we come to follow the call of God together.
Also, in case you missed it you can check out our first drive in Church (23.8.20) on the button which takes you to our Youtube channel
In the meantime connect to the facebook page for any questions.
Hello, well here you see a photo of us all as a family, with our two boys Michael (20) and Benjy (18) conveniently hidden! I am Rob Jones your Baptist pastor for the Kelso area, here pictured with my wife Fiona (and our hidden sons). I am keen for the church to reach people outside of conventional boundaries. As such, I offer chaplaincy to the town centre shops and one day we might have a space of our own in the town centre. When I am not pastoring my interests include all kinds of cycling, wild camping, good live music, and messing about with old computers. Prior to becoming a pastor I was a design engineer for 15 years, so I still try and keep a few interesting projects going. My wife Fiona is a part-time primary school teacher, she enjoys feeding the 5000, and creative writing (check out her writers page on Facebook ‘Fiona M Jones’). Michael is at Heriot Watt in his 4th year of a Maths & Physics Degree, and Benjy is in his 2nd year in Vet school at Edinburgh uni.
What is the price of your freedom? Perhaps for some of you it involved being double jabbed against the Covid virus, maybe that is your passport to a more free life? For the follower of Jesus, true freedom comes only as we are able to break out of the things that hold us down in this world. Fear, addictions, expectations, sadnesses, hopelessness. What is it that you need saving from? In order to be released from the things that bind us, we need to find the guide who will allow us to live a life of release. Jesus shows us that way. Do you want to know more? Then get in touch, perhaps you might join us on this journey together.
As you visit us on a Sunday you enter a worshipful but relaxed and friendly environment in Abbey Row Community cente (10:30am start). We celebrate communion the first Sunday of every month and the last Sunday is generally our day for lunch after church (yes you are welcome, with tea coffee on other Sundays). Tuesdays at 7:30pm is our weekly prayer meeting (again in Abbey Row). In the future we are looking to provide a time / location for healing prayer (watch this space). Best way to keep up to date with KBC is on our Facebook page (updated frequently, alternatively drop us an email).
