A brief history

Chalk Farm Baptist Church commenced back in 1865 when a small number of Christians began to meet in a home in Camden Town. A year later they moved into a converted barn behind Chalk Farm Road, which they called the “Peniel Tabernacle”.

In 1870 the church bought some land, and in 1871 opened the Berkley Road Baptist Chapel (or Chalk Farm Chapel) which was damaged during the last world war and re-erected in 1957 and renamed as it stands today, "Chalk Farm Baptist Church."

Since then, God has sustained this church in many different ways, bringing together people of diverse ages, cultures and backgrounds.

We believe that prayer equips people to serve. Our aim is to serve the communities in which we live, and beyond.

o         Refreshments are at hand before and after our meetings; fresh coffee, tea, cold drinks, cakes…And it’s all free!

o         Our services start with 25 minutes of sung praise and worship, led by a band.

o         A clear, practical talk from the Bible by a preacher, helping us to understand God’s love and plan for our lives and how we can live that out.
