About Acre Mill


Acre Mill is a lively, community centred, evangelical Baptist church with many links into its immediate neighbourhood.

We seek to be a place of vibrant and inclusive worship - a place where we meet together in Christian fellowship to seek and be led by God.

Many opportunities are provided to meet during the week in addition to our services on Sunday.

Our aim is to share the love of Jesus in the community where we are and further afield, as we follow the lead of our Lord to be salt and light in his world.

A warm welcome awaits all visitors.
