- Giving | Providence Baptist Church | Clifton
Giving As Christians, the way we utilise our money is a great way for us to highlight to others how Jesus’ values are radically different from the world around us – both individually and as a church. As a church, we want to ensure that our finances are managed in a way that honours God – that we are efficient, effective, full of integrity and transparent and that how the church spends the money reflects God’s concerns both locally and around the world. We avoid charging for church events wherever we can, as we believe the Gospel should be free and accessible to all people. For those looking to give to the work of the church we can now receive gifts through an online payment system in conjunction with Stewardship services: . This also enables us to claim back Gift Aid from the government on donations from UK tax payers. www.give.net However, giving is not just about the cash in our pockets! It’s a great privilege to also be able to serve God by giving of our time, skills and money, all in response to his giving up his most treasured Son, Jesus.

- Getting involved | Providence Baptist Church | Clifton
Getting involved Locally Trusting Christ as Saviour means becoming part of His family - the global church. The Bible encourages those who have become Christians to be involved and serving as part of a local church family. As a local church we encourage all members and attendees who trust the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour to play an active role in the life of the church and be fully involved with church activities both on Sunday and throughout the week. We each have different gifts and passions and encourage individuals to nurture and grow these as they serve. We may be a small but growing church, but that just means the opportunities for service are greater. Further afield Life as a Christian means more than just turning up on Sunday mornings. The Bible makes it clear that if we are one of Christ's family our whole life should reflect this fact. We are not made perfect overnight, but we grow to be more like Him day by day. A key part of this growth as a Christian comes from sharing the good news of Jesus, both in our local church and further afield. We encourage all church members to be involved in other Gospel works and outreach and below are some of the organisations we support both as a church and as individuals : United Beach Missions - (&CA) Young Life - (&YLH) Open Air Mission -
- Who we are | Providence Baptist Church | Clifton
Who we are Clifton Providence Baptist Church is a group of normal people all from different walks of life, whose lives have been transformed by Jesus Christ.

- Explore More | Providence Baptist Church | Clifton
Exploring Christianity Many people wonder as to the meaning and purpose of life. We believe the Bible and Jesus answer these big issues. If you have never looked into the claims of Jesus for yourself or if you just want to know more about what it is to be a real Christian we offer a Christianity Explored course. There are 7 studies from an eyewitness account of Jesus' life, death and resurrection. Someone from the church would be happy to run this with you either on your own or as part of a group, finding a time that would best suit you. Contact us if you would like to know more or join a group. More information about Christianity Explored can be found . here
- Midweek | Providence Baptist Church | Clifton
Midweek Bible studies Throughout the week we often run different groups for those looking to find out more about the Bible and what it means to be a Christian. These groups are usually tailored to the individuals attending by studying parts of the Bible that the group leaders feel would be suitable based on understanding and experience of the Christian faith. Contact us for more information or if you are interested in joining a group. Weekly prayer meeting As the name would suggest, the focus of the prayer meeting is prayer! One evening a week we meet to pray, giving what is on our hearts to our Creator and Saviour, who listens, loves, and cares for us. The location varies each week, so please consult the monthly calendar. During the lockdown many of our regular weekly Bible studies and prayer meetings continue to operate along with some additional ones. These all take place over Zoom so if you would like to get involved please speak to a church member who will be able to give you details to gain access. In the meantime below is a video to help you in your own personal Bible studies.
