Located in Rochdale about 15 miles north East of Manchester, Newbold is a lively charismatic Baptist Church.
With an 80 strong congregation, our church has a membership of people of all ages, from tiny babies to ‘Great’ Grandparents
in their 80s. Creche, Explorers, Discovery and Young People’s Fellowship cram 20 – 30 kids in each week who are very
much encouraged to be part of the church today. We enjoy a family atmosphere with people from many different
backgrounds and walks of life including travellers, those from Asian, African and European countries and those
who travel from neighbouring Oldham! We all have Jesus in common.
Our church is on the edge of the Newbold estate, which is in the top 10% of most deprived areas in the UK,
so we have a number of social outreach activities to interact with the local community including a long running
playgroup, a 1.30 Club for the Over 60’s and a Kidz Klub for those with bundles of Saturday morning energy.
Litter picking, town centre evangelism and connections with the local businesses gives us chance to chat
to people about what goes on in the building with the funny shaped roof!
Our mission field doesn’t stop on our doorstep, with missionaries in Romania and China
and many other connections all over the world.
We'd like to take the opportunity to introduce ourselves here at Newbold Baptist Church.
We welcome you to our church either as a first-time visitor or as part of our local community.
We'd love you to come to know us a little better too. ... more >>

What if Jesus had this response when he first asked his disciples?
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him. more >>
