About Us
Worship at Witton Chapel
Our worship services are traditional in format following the New Testament pattern of giving prominence to the preaching of God's Word and including the offering of public prayer and praise to God who is to be served with "reverence and godly fear" (Heb 12:28).
We use the 'Authorised Version' (King James Version) of the Holy Bible, believing it still to be the most accurate and faithful translation of God's Word out of the original languages.
Our hymns are to be found in 'Grace Hymns' which includes a great number of well-established hymns used by the Christian Church over the centuries.
Our Faith and Practice

A short explanation of this description is given below but a good summary of our doctrinal position may be found in the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith.
