"Meet-up" Mondays

Every Monday throughout the summer, from 4pm-5pm, Dave will be taking a camping chair and a drink down to COLWELL COMMON to sit in the shade of a tree and enjoy the view! If you would like to head down to the common to join him (and/or others) for a socially distanced drink and a chat, please do. He'll be there every Monday, UNLESS it's wet and/or windy! If in doubt, call or text him first - or check this page online.

Public gatherings are currently governed by STRICT guidelines due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis. Please see these comprehensive GUIDELINES about our summer-time "Meet-up Mondays".

On Monday 3rd August, Dave and family have a week off - so he won't be there. But perhaps others will!? PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE READ THE PAGE OF GUIDELINES BEFORE DECIDING TO ATTEND.

The way forward from here

If you are a regular member of the congregation of Colwell Baptist Church, please fill in a SHORT online survey to help us navigate the way forward from where we find ourselves at the moment. You can access the form here

The survey is a way for you to respond to this 10-minute video message from Dave; 

"Online church"...

YouTube LIVE-STREAM (Sundays at 10.30am for "Church at Home" (a short and informal time of prayer, praise and worship) and weekdays at 9am for "Morning Prayer")

CBC's YouTube Page (to view previous recordings of "Church at home" mornings and recent Sermon videos).

Back in the day, this website USED to say...


Colwell Baptist Church is an evangelical (Bible-based), family-friendly church in the village of Freshwater on the Isle of Wight. We are a lively and growing church family, made up of lots of people from different ages and stages of life.  

Whether you are new to the area, new to faith, new to church - or simply on holiday on the Island and looking for a local church to come to - you will always find a warm and friendly welcome at Colwell Baptist Church.

Although our website is quite basic, we hope it will tell you all you need to know about us. If you would like to know more, please just drop us a line!
