About Welcome Church

Welcome Church has been in Woking for over 140 years. The church started out in 1879 as Woking Baptist Church, and has been faithfully serving the community ever since.

During those years the church has built several different buildings and has been known by a few different names, yet throughout all that time we have been working together to introduce people to Jesus and to help them grow in their faith. You can watch some of the stories of people whose lives have been transformed by watching our Welcome Stories here.

We have a passion to serve our community and to help those most in need, and you can find our more about what we do to serve our community here.

The name change to Welcome Church was made in 2018, as part of a change of culture, vision and strategy for the church and to help connect better with both our town and the wider world. The church has a big vision:

“To see lives changed and communities impacted for good through God’s grace in action”

We opened our brand new building in the heart of Woking, on the junction of Goldsworth Road and Church Street West, in January 2020. You are welcome to come and join us any time, just come as you are. We also have a fantastic youth work and children’s work and a whole range of exciting ministries.

Due to the current Coronavirus Pandemic, all our meetings are currently taking place online. Whoever you are, wherever you are and wherever you are at on the journey of faith, please feel free to join us. 


We look forward to meeting in our own building again soon and would love you to join us there when we do.
