Welcome to

Lerwick Baptist Church

Every person who walks through our doors is important. You will find us warm, approachable and friendly. As a church we care about you and your family and we’re here to walk alongside you on your faith journey and to help in any other way we can.

To keep everyone as safe as we can, the numbers at all services are currently limited to 50 in total, with hand sanitising stations and physical distancing in place. There will be stewards in place to guide people to and from their seats, and a one-way system will be in place. Please also wear a face mask or other similar covering.

Due to the services being restricted to 50, we are having to operate a booking system  – so if you would like to come it is essential you make a booking.  Click on the links below.  Please note these will be updated every week.

Both links are now open and available to book until Saturday at 6pm.

The Full Story - Evening Readings

Hear the gospels as you’ve never heard them before! Start to finish, presented out loud, the way they were originally designed. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John give us four different perspectives on the life of Jesus; the person whose life has most significantly impacted the world for the last 2000 years.

Starting with Mark on Friday 6th November at 7pm in the Church we’ll continue with Matthew, Luke and John on the following Fridays. Normal Covid restrictions will apply (currently: face coverings, distancing, good hygiene and a limit of 50 people) so to book your place please visit eventbrite and search for ‘The Full Story’ or click on the link below.  Hope to see you there!
