Help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words

Matthew 28:19 (AMP)


to West Grange Church

We are open!

Our morning services have started up again, however, due to many still shielding we are recording our morning services (Church Inside) and they should be published within 24hours and usually earlier. Please check back on Monday if the video hasn't been uploaded yet.

Below are the risk-reducing procedures that we are following which that now also includes wearing of face coverings inside. Below is a video we created for reopening, detailing the procedures, which are also outlined below.

We want to make you aware of the guidance from the government website. To allow you to make an informed decision for the choices you as an individual make.

These comments are lifted from the government website.

  • People should avoid singing, shouting, raising voices and/or playing music at a volume that makes normal conversation difficult or that may encourage shouting. This is because of the potential for increased risk of transmission from aerosol and droplets.
  • Therefore, spoken responses during worship should also not be in a raised voice.
  • Activities such as singing, chanting, shouting and/or playing of instruments that are blown into should be specifically avoided in worship or devotions. This is because there is a possible additional risk of transmission in environments where individuals are singing or chanting as a group, and this applies even if social distancing is being observed or face coverings are used.
  • Face coverings are currently mandatory on public transport and will be mandatory in shops and in supermarkets from 24 July 2020. People are also encouraged to wear face coverings in enclosed public spaces where there are people they do not normally meet, such as a place of worship.
  • Individuals who are shielding should continue to follow the government’s advice on shielding.

Individuals aged 70 years and over attending the place of worship

  • Certain groups of people may be at increased risk of severe disease from COVID-19, including people who are aged 70 or older, regardless of medical conditions.
  • Individuals who fall within this group are advised to stay at home as much as possible and, if they do go out, to take particular care to minimise contact with others outside of their household.
  • You should consider informing these groups in particular of the symptoms of COVID-19 and current stay alert and social distancing guidance.

If you have symptoms of new continuous cough, high temperature, loss of taste/smell. Stay at home. Seek advice from NHS 111. Who may ask you to get a test.


A consent form will be at the entrance table for you to sign and to provide telephone details which will be kept securely for 21 days. This will only be used for NHS test and trace purposes.

We appreciate your patience as you queue to complete the form and apply hand sanitiser before entering the building. Tape marks off safe distance.

We are only using the main hall, so our one-way system is entry by the main doors into Church, leave by fire exits at the front, repeating hand sanitiser at exit points before leaving the building.


If you are single person find a single seat at the front, if taken move back a row to the next available single seat. If you are a household pair same procedure but finding twin seats. For a larger family group, chairs must only be adjusted by a designated helper.

Please keep exits clear, remember social distancing guidelines still apply.


Will be cleaned before the service and will be monitored throughout opening. If you can avoid using them that would be helpful.

A person will be designated cleaner for the day.

Currently, there will be no offers of transportation to and from Church.

No classes for children

No food or drink.


We are a small local church situated in the Belle Isle/Hunslet area of South Leeds and run mostly by volunteers. We are an independent evangelical Church, with no affiliations, however we are made up of people from all walk of life, predominantly from ‘evangelical’ denominations. We meet in our own building and have been ministering to the area from our current site since 1968. We added an extension to the building in 2012.


In the 1940’s the minister of Hunslet Baptist church lived on East Grange Drive.  A new council estate was built opposite and members of Hunslet Baptist invited children to form a Sunday School.  The work grew rapidly and the Rev. C Wooster asked for a smaller house and the manse became a mission of Hunslet Baptist which led eventually, May 1953, into East Grange Baptist Church.

Due to being inundated with Baptist Union material we became an independent fellowship.  Yorkshire Baptist Association were gracious to us in allowing continued use of the former manse.

Across the main Road on West Grange Garth, land became available to us.  Through the guidance of God, sending a qualified building manager to lodge with a church member, West Grange Church was built and opened in October 1968.


The Bible says that "God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that however believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16)
