This season that we are in has brought about a lot of changes for many in the church family. We have been encouraging the church family to call for support if required and there are many on stand-by to help in various ways. However we also wanted to point you to various resources you may wish to explore.

Please find links and sign posts to different resources. These will be updated regularly and if you know of any link that may be useful, please pass these on to web@KingswoodBaptistChurch.co.uk so we can update the page.
