Welcome! We’re saving you a seat…
Thornhill Baptist Church is a community of ordinary people based in the heart of the Thornhill and Harefield areas of Southampton. Everyone is welcome: the old and the young; the got-it-together and the battered and bruised by life; the convinced Christian and the unsure explorer.
We can’t meet together during the coronavirus crisis, but church doesn’t stop when the building closes – we’re family and you’re invited! Join us online every Sunday morning – see the “Online” link on this page.
Tim and Judy’s story
We still do not fully understand why all the bad things happened but we do hold on to a God who seems to be available when most needed
In January 2017 our 41 year old son was killed in a car crash leaving a wife and three young children. At first we just about coped with being up in the area of his home, trying to comfort his children and living day to day back in Southampton amid a welter of emotions, fear for the future, confusion, sadness and loss.
In this period, we were held by the love of our many friends at church, including our pastors. We received so many cards, messages and flowers it all seemed to carry us along on a tide of support. We knew that many, especially in our house-group, were praying for us, and although we could not prove it this seemed to make a big difference. To have so many of our friends at the celebration of our son’s life meant a great deal to us.
