Welcome to the
Ferndale Family of Churches

Whether you are just browsing or thinking of visiting, we hope you find our website a useful resource. The Ferndale 'family' comprises three churches.

Ferndale Baptist Church

is an evangelical Baptist church in the heart of Southchurch, Southend-on-Sea. We are a group of people who love and follow Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible is vital in this, and so teaching from the Bible is a key feature when we meet together. And we believe that the good news of Jesus Christ should be shared with those who don't know him.

Sunday services at 10.30am (Find Us)

Brethren in Christ Church

is a primarily Zimbabwean congregation also meeting at Ferndale. We are part of the worldwide Brethren in Christ movement. Our meetings are times of lively worship and Bible teaching. If you would like to find out more about what we believe, our Articles of Faith and Doctrine can be read here.

Sunday service at 1.00pm

SOS Community Church

An Adventist congregation that meets weekly.

Saturday meeting at 10.00am
