Welcome to Islington Baptist Church

Welcome is more than just a word, it’s how you’ll find us as you walk through the door at Islington Baptist Church. We’ve been part of the Islington community for 130 years (Praise God, that milestone was achieved in August 2016]. Much has changed in that time and, like Islington itself, so has the mix of those who can be found in the church any Sunday. There will be people from Sudan, Ghana, South Africa, sitting alongside those from China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, UK and Germany, and of course, Aussies born and bred. We aren’t a perfect mix, so there’s always a place for you to become part of our Church Family. We look forward to welcoming you and your family with more than just a word.

Friendly but without any noteworthy investment. Above all: brief. I hadn’t seen her for about six months, and even though I was stressed because I was already late for a work-related appointment, I had to stop to say hello. “How’s your husband?” I asked.

That’s when she said: He died.
