Westside Baptist Church is located in the town of Bandon, popularly known as “The Gateway to West Cork”. We like to think that Bandon is more than a place you pass through on the way somewhere else!
We want to glorify God by being a spiritual home for God’s people, providing clear teaching from the Bible, loving fellowship, pastoral care and opportunities to serve others. It is also our aim to share the good news of the grace of God in our local area and to encourage interest and involvement in world-wide missionary work.
The church has a leadership team, which includes a full-time pastor, who provide spiritual oversight and pastoral care for the church. Martin Parker has been pastoring the church since September 2005.
We have a Statement of Faith which summarises important Christian doctrines which we affirm.
We are a self-governing evangelical church and are members of the Association of Baptist Churches in Ireland. In this way we partner with others in the work of the gospel.
At present we are seeking to establish a church in the nearby town of Kinsale. For more information visit www.kinsaleabc.ie.
