Bible Study

Morning Bible Study

 Curently on Zoom

Bible Study is held at 10:30am on Tuesdays, in the Manse social room.


"The Tuesday Bible Study Group started many years ago. The meeting begins at 10:30am, we start with a cup of tea and biscuits. There are six ladies who regularly attend. We always start with a warm welcome and a breif chat about our families, then we sing a selection of choruses which leads us into group prayer for our community, for the world at large and for the work of the church, along with prayer for each of the ladies in our study group.


"In the early days the Bible study would be based on the same chapter we read in the Sunday service. As the  years have passed we have been blessed with the addition of three more ladies from the church. Our pastor also attends and has introduced a 13 week discipleship study course which is of great encoragement to us. Two of the titles in the course are 'Freedom in Christ' and Steps to Freedom in Christ'. One of our members who has recently started coming was registered blind, she has attended regularly and one week she told us that her eyes had been opened and that she was now able to see! She was able to see many things that she could not see before; she had been clearly blessed by god and this was of great joy to her and to the rest of the group. We were all blessed and encoraged by this miracle.

we as a church would like to take this opportunity to give thanks to God for his blessing and this great miracle."

The Difference


I got up early one morning and rushed right into the day;

I had so much to accomplish that I didn't have time to pray.

Problems just tumbled about me, and heavier came each task.

"Why doesn't God help me? I wondered.

He answered, "You didn't ask."

I wanted to see joy and beauty, but the day toiled on gray and bleak.

I wondered why God didn't show me;

He said, "But you didn't seek."

I tried to come into God's presence; I used all my keys at the lock.

God gently and lovingly childed, "My child, you didn't knock."

I woke up early this morning, and paused before entering the day.

I had so much to accomplish, I had to take time to pray.


Zoom has led to a new revived morning and evening prayer meeting at 7am and 9pm through the week. These are led by a combination of Peter, Charo and Ann.

Prayer is an essential part of the Christian life. Here at PPRBC we seek to encourage regular personal and group prayer. For us, we are discovering that it is not just how much or how we'll you pray. It is also about just saying it as it is. Our God hears. Our focus during this season is to pray whenever we can, with whomever we can as often as we can.



The Pastoral Care Team started two years ago in 2019.

We are involved in supporting the needs of the Church Members ie; making sure we tend to their needs strengthening each other in times of need, encouraging them with the word of God, making provisions by ringing and praying with them,visiting them in their homes and hospitals.

If necessary we are dedicated and supportive team who take time out of our way to make sure the members needs are met, from time to time we would send sympathy cards, get well cards and flowers to PPBRC members.

Now that the lockdown is easing up we will be able to visit some of the church members who we have not seen for a while that is our plan for this year.

Thank you


Pastoral Care

In life we have spiritual problems, and to achieve well being healing must be holistic and include spiritual, practical and generous support. Healing is a processes where we need to get to the root of issues not just treat the symptoms. We must be prepared to accompany people on this journey and support them. As we provide this support to others we must provide for each other.

This is a small group whose purpose is to support and minister to each other. This involves ‘walking with others’ and growing spiritually as individuals.

Our Pastoral care group has also evoveled this year during Covid 19 as we ssek to support our church and local comunity.

They are led by Hortence and a dedicated team  who have worked extremely hard this year.

As a church we are also studying a course on wholeness and fruitfullness which has been significant for our membership after the dificulties of the past year.


Winifred Kanu, is our Hospitality & Catering Coordinator. She is in charge of welcoming visitors to the church and ushering them to seating to allow for social distansing. She facilitates our Church Social Events and Catering.

We are looking forward to welcoming the local comunity back to our church building and gardens so we can share our love of Jesus and the sense of comunity that excists so powerfully at PPRBC.

Hospitality is key to our church family, we love to eat and celebrate together just as Jesus did. By joining together, celebrating LIFE together as one family, By supporting each other in times of joy and suffering we Share his Love. Creating a safe place where we are all acepted and loved for who we are. While we encorage and support each other as we grow in fruitfulness is intregal to our christian Family at PPRBC.

Children and Youth Ministry

We have a commited team at Peckham Park Road Baptist Church with a commitment to enrich the lives of the youth in our church and the local community and help them learn and develop their love of God. Our team is led by Bassey Dunu and Kim Webber.

The 1st service of the month is our Comunion & Family service. The remainder of the month the church meet together for Worship and then our young people join together for our Youth Ministry.

Friday evenings termtime is our Kids Club were our young people have the chance to meet, play team games, craft and spend quality time together.  We gather together to discover more about God and each other in fellowship.

During Covid we met on Zoom and are thankful we can once again meet together in person.

Our safeguarding policy can be downoaded here.

Our Worship Team

Marcia leads our worship team, who work really hard during the week preparing to lead us in worship on a Sunday morning.


We have been blessed to have guest worship leaders to support our team in their development; including singing lessons. Members of our worship team include Marcia, Olga, Joan, Gillian, Jennifer and David C.

In previous years  the attitude to worship has developed with the group becoming freer to express themselves. Taking turns to lead worship and having the young people more involved. The group have devoted time and effort to seek and become closer to God.

This last year the worship team and Tech team have perservered to bring us Worship through Zoom and later to work out the complexities of compining in person and Zoom services.

2nd Generation a worship group that consist of young people aged 16-30. They have brought a fresh and new approach to praise & worship and have had a great impact within the church. They continue to lead praise & worship every month.

Most recently Marvin and Andy have been taking a turn to represent the men by leading worship each month.


This year Evelgelism has taken place very diffrently this year but the team has ben creative in reaching the local comunity.

Below is a message from Ruby our Evangelism and Outreach leader.

The Evangelism Group began in 2008. The team members are dedicated and passionate about souls  for the Kingdom and they love the Lord. Some of our activities are: visiting doors  to share the gospel;  mission events in Peckham Square and Rye Lane. Befriending people, and praying with them. We have seen people accepted Christ, prayers been answered and lives changed. During lockdown as we were restricted. Our activities were scaled down. However we had kept in touch with flowers and well wishes,  prayed with those who were overwhelmed by Covid and could not see their loved ones, especially those in hospital. People need God more than ever before, only they are not aware of it. Therefore we are here to introduce  them to the God who love them, love us,  so that He sent his one and only Son to die  for us all. What great and awesome Love. Praise God. 


Just as we are

JAWA stands for Just As We Are. Meetings are open to women from Peckham Park Road Baptist Church (PPRBC). However, women who do not attend PPRBC may be invited to attend meetings with us. We meet twice monthly on a Fridays at 7.30pm usually for not more that 2 ½ hours. We exercise confidentiality. We pray together, socialise together and be our Sisters keepers always in good, bad or sad times.

This is an amazing video and

 Open Doors is an amazing charity.


We have been looking at worship with our youth at church.

After a lesson around Shadrach Meshach and Abednego.

We discussed what would we do if someone asked us

'Are you a christian?'

What if the answer could cost you your life?

What would you say then?

In some parts of the world it can.



This is when  I came across this

You Tube Video.              - The Cost.
