The Baptist Church is a community hub where many groups and activities take place.
Bildeston Baptist was formed in 1737 and was the first Baptist Church established in Suffolk. From its early beginnings it grew steadily over the years and the present building was officially opened in 1834.
The Church quickly became an integral part of village life and many activities took place in the building. The village school used the building for physical education etc. for many years before the new school was built in the 1970’s. This tradition continues today as the church seeks to serve its community. It is very much a community hub where many groups and activities take place. It is also available for private hire.
