About Us

Galashiels Baptist Church is a member of the Baptist Union of Scotland. 

Our Church family is made up of a diverse and distinctive group of people of mixed ages and drawn from various backgrounds. We operate under Baptist principles, acknowledging the Lordship of Jesus over our lives, Church and the whole wide world, accepting The Bible as the True Word of God.

 We are a small, welcoming, family friendly Baptist Church. Our average Sunday morning congregation size is around 60 people with an age range from the over 60s to babies and toddlers. As a Church, we are active in the local community and the surrounding area bringing the Good News of Jesus to the people. We work together with other Churches in the town as part of the Galashiels Fellowsip of Churches. GBC actively supports various missionary organisations, including Baptist Missionary Society.

Visitors will experience a warm friendly welcome.
