Purley Baptist Church is affiliated to the Baptist Union of Great Britain. Here is there description of what it is to be part of a Baptist Church.


From this small beginning will, in the near future, grow a cause which God will bless

Purley Baptist Church began informally in 1905 when Mr T Herbert Winny, a local architect, invited a small group of local Christian friends, to meet together for worship at the home of Mr Doubell at Roke Lodge, Kenley.
The invitation expressed the desire to create a cause which God will bless. The men were visionary and a chapel was built on the existing church site in 1908 and then in 1913 the church joined the Baptist Union.
