During the Week

Church is about more than Sundays and we have lots going on during the week.
We have a wide range of activities aimed at all ages. Below are some of our regular groups, which run during term time.
To check if a group is running, please contact the group leader or email office@barrowbaptist.org.uk

We have lots of groups for children and youth:

  • Baby Buds our baby group
  • Little Buds our toddler group
  • Who Let the Dads Out? one Saturday each month
  • Messy Church the first Sunday each month
  • Sparks Friday fun for Key Stage 1
  • Youth Group Sunday night group

Many churches have small groups which are typically for Bible study and fellowship.  At Barrow Baptist Church our groups seek to meet the five purposes of the church: fellowship, worship, discipleship, ministry, and mission.  We call them growth groups because the aim is for the groups to grow in numbers and maturity.

Jesus himself had his own small group of twelve people in whom he invested the majority of his time and effort to help them grow as disciples.  If you desire to be effective in your service for the Lord you will greatly benefit from being in a Growth Group and contributing to its life.  If you would like to join please get in contact with Rev Graham Dunn who will be pleased to help you find the right group.

‘Devote yourself to prayer’ these are the words of Paul to the Colossian Church (Col 4:2).

Our monthly Church Prayer Meetings are a valuable opportunity to meet together and pray for our community, as well as all of the groups and events that we run.  Our Church Prayer Meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month at 7:30pm (not March, August or November).

As well as these meetings there are opportunities for us to come together each week to pray:
Monday: 9:00 – 9:30 am Lounge
Tuesday: 9:15 –10:15 am Lounge

At Deeper we spend an hour each week looking into a variety of topics; from more in-depth teaching on a book of the Bible to how we progress further in our relationship with Jesus. While this meets during the day (Thursdays 9:30-10:30), the content is usually video based and we endeavour to make it available to everyone via our members facebook page.

Our pop-up cafe is open for snacks and light lunches from 11.40am to 12:45pm, during term time.  All are welcome.

We have a vibrant programme of events for our over 50s!

  • Tuesday Live our mid-week seniors' service
  • Silver Sports our group for active adults
  • Banquets and Dances!  We have a programme of banquets, and fish and chip lunches with a dance, spaced throughout the year.

    Click here for more information about our seniors' groups.

As well as our church organised groups some of us meet more informally to focus on our physical health and spend time with like-minded friends.


There are a number of people in the church who attend the parkrun in Loughborough and support each other in their running endevours. For more info contact Ben


On Tuesday nights we have a group that meets at church to go cycling together, others wanting a more relaxed ride also meet more informally. To find out more contact Ed Dring


Since 2017 we have also devoted the first May bank holiday to a cycling weekend. Some attempt long 100-mile-a-day rides, some do a short family ride and others somewhere in between.


Our slightly less active option for those increasing in years is our Silver Sports group on a Friday between 10am-12pm. This includes Table Tennis, darts, pool and indoor bowls.
