Coronavirus For HBC -resizeCoronavirus Update - 19th March 2020 

With great sadness, Harborne Baptist Church are suspending all physical gatherings as of today until further notice.This includes our Sunday services, Junior Church, Place of Welcome, Prayer Meetings, Home Groups, Alpha Courses and the Harborne Park Community Cafe. This is in response to the latest government guidance, confirmed by the Baptist Union of Great Britain, to do all that we can to avoid the further spread of the Coronavirus in our community.

While, for now, we are unable to get together in person, our church is not limited to a building, or to weekly meetings. We are exploring ways that we can stay connected with one another, and keep serving our community. You can find a daily YouTube update from us at: "Harborne Baptist Church HBC".

We will post further updates here as the situation changes.

Stay in touch:

Please help us to stay in touch with you. Let us know if we can support you in practical ways – phone the church office (0121 4277141), or email Pete (

Sermon Resources:
1. We record our Sunday Sermons and post them on our website: "Sunday Sermons".
2. We are also about to start live streaming our services, so that those who are unable to join us can see and hear what is happening from home. You will be able to access the live stream through our website "LiveStream" and our Facebook page (

We will share any changes as they happen – but for regular updates and health advice please visit the NHS Website.
