There has not been a Baptist witness in the town since ‘Purfleet Baptist Church’ closed its doors more than 15 years ago.
In 2017, Socketts Heath Baptist Church, in partnership with the Eastern Baptist Association and Urban Expression, began to explore the possibility of pioneering a new work in Purfleet. Since then, other local churches have got involved, and in 2021 we were in the position to use the proceeds from the sale of the old chapel, along with a contribution from an angel investor, to purchase accommodation for our missional listener, Erica Bowler.
The trustees of Love Purfleet are committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults. For more information about our safeguarding policy and procedures please send us an email.
