Our Neighbourhood

At SBC, we are keen to work in partnership

We do this in three ways: in faith ventures with other local churches; through our Local Partners scheme
and in our neighbourhood with other local organisations.

Stopsley Community Garden

Stopsley Community Garden is here to provide a place to relax, a way to engage with nature, to meet with others, and get active outdoors. This project has been born out of the Stopsley and Putteridge community survey which took place three years ago. One of its findings was that people wanted to have more of a community feel within the Stopsley and Putteridge area. Stopsley Baptist Church owns a piece of land next to The Greenhouse in St Thomas Road. We hope the whole community and community groups including schools will use this garden. Research has shown the benefits of having a community garden will bring people together of all different race, age and cultures. We hope we can use the vegetables and fruit grown in the garden to give to people who need it.  Everyone is welcome!
