Welcome to Freedom Church!

Update: We regret that, due to government social distancing recommendations, we have had to suspend our meetings with immediate effect and until further notice.  As  further updates are available they will be published here.  Keep up with us on Facebook.

“Even though I walk through a valley of deep darkness, I will not be afraid because you are with me” Psalm 23:4


Sidley Baptist Church is in the process of change.  And its name is changing to reflect its character.   At the heart of our faith is Freedom.  We are becoming Freedom Church, Bexhill.  Over a period of weeks, this website will increasingly be refreshed to introduce you to our vision.

Churches vary greatly in style and vibe don’t they? They vary because we are not all the same.  Just like houses have different structures and interiors, so church communities express themselves differently.

The key is to find YOUR spiritual home.  It may be at Freedom Church, Bexhill.  The aim of this web site is to provide you with a window into our church community and to help you to decide if this could become your spiritual home. 

At root level we are a Word and Spirit church who are learning to love God, love people and even learning how to love ourselves in Christ!  We aspire not only to be a ‘church without walls’ but also a ‘church without a ceiling’ as we press in to experience God.   See more about Sunday worship.

We value authenticity, truth and transparency but accept we don’t always get it right because we’re human.  If you are looking for a well oiled business church, a performance cinema style church or a strict lecture theatre church, then we’re probably not for you.  If you’re looking for somewhere to belong, grow, serve and thrive, where you will be valued wherever you are on your spiritual journey, then maybe this could be your spiritual home!

homeBefore you go, note the passion, warmth and deep heart felt language used below to define church!  Isn’t it inspiring?

“And they devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.  And awe came upon every soul and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles”  Acts 2:42-43

“So being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves because you had become very dear to us” 1 Thess. 2:8
