About Us

We are a small group of believers who meet weekly on a Lord’s Day usually in the afternoon at the chapel to hear the word of God. Please see our Preaching Calendar for a list of services.

Kirkland Chapel, Nateby Near Garstang, Lancashire is a Strict and Particular Baptist church. The word strict means that we believe only those who have been baptised and received as church members (or by other churches of the same faith and order) may partake of the Lord’s Supper (or Communion). Particular in this context means Particular Redemption or Limited Atonement, one of the five points of Calvinism.

The Strict Baptist churches trace their origin in England to about the year 1633. They are independent and self-governing. Baptists believe that the Word of God teaches that baptism is by total immersion and to be administered to believers only.

Whilst remaining independent, Kirkland Chapel is associated with the Gospel Standard group of churches.

We use the 1611, King James, Authorised Version of the Bible and use Gadsby’s Hymnbook (named after William Gadsby one of the early leaders of the Strict and Particular Baptists.

Out of reverence to His Holy Name, we address Almighty God, using Thee, Thou or Thine.

Our services consist of:

Opening hymn,  scripture reading, prayer, second hymn, preaching, concluding hymn and blessing.

Be assured of a warm welcome at our services.
