Hesters Way Baptist Church

A church in the community

God blessed our outdoor carol service last week with dry weather, live music, a walk through nativity by our Boys Brigade and lots of our local community turning up to sing! Thanks be to God!

Vision and Values

Our vision:

We want Hesters Way Baptist Church to enable the community to know Jesus and make Jesus known. Jesus called us to be his disciples (or followers) who share the good news contained in His manifesto recorded in Luke 4. 18-19:

The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour

Our values:

With the help of God’s Holy Spirit, we want to be:

  • Jesus followers (with our L plates on)
  • Good news people (for Hesters Way community, Cheltenham and beyond)
  • Bible do-ers (rather than just hearers)
  • Generous disciples (mirroring the generous love of God)
  • Transformed transformers (being change agents, while being changed by God)


Rev Tim Welch is our current part time minister. tim.welch@hesterway.org


We are currently holding a Covid secure 10:30 Sunday service in the church building for 30 people, this is live streamed onto Zoom for those at home. For further details of Zoom links or online mid week meetings please contact Tim Welch or see our website.
