Welcome to Hyde Street Chapel, Winchester

who we are

We are an Independent Reformed Baptist Church in the heart of the City of Winchester, Hampshire, the ancient capital of England.

We are a welcoming group of Christians, committed to worshipping God and sharing the love of Jesus Christ with our community through faithful Bible teaching and our witness to others.

what we believe

We believe that the Bible is the infallible Word of God and that the truths contained within it are as relevant now as they were when God first gave them. We believe that we are all sinners in need of forgiveness and that the only way of being right with God is through His Son, Jesus Christ. Our primary aim is to glorify God, and to tell everyone of the good news contained in the Bible, so that others may come to know and love God.

what to expect

Christians seeking a faithful expository Bible ministry will find it at our services, where the preaching of God's Word is central to our worship. Those seeking to find out more will not be disappointed either, for ‘faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.’ (Romans 10:17).
All are welcome to join with us.

COVID-19: The Chapel is fully open and all are welcome to join with us. For information on the current COVID-19 precautions in place, please click the link.

In the same way the sun never grows weary of shining, nor a stream of flowing, it is God's nature to keep His promises. Therefore, go immediately to His throne and say, 'Do as You promised.'

Charles Spurgeon

Worship & Study

We meet for worship on Sundays at 10 am and 5.30 pm and on Thursday evening at 7.30pm for Bible study and prayer. A warm welcome is extended to any who would like to join us.

Worship with us

Sunday 10 am & 5.30 pm

“Worship is the submission of all of our nature to God. It is the quickening of the conscience by his holiness; the nourishment of mind with his truth; the purifying of imagination by his beauty; the opening of the heart to his love; the surrender of will to his purpose--all this gathered up in adoration, the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable.” William Temple
