This world is so difficult at times and we have often been hurt and let down or just struggle because of what has happened in our lives. Nairn Baptist Church - NBC - accept this is a reality for so many and so we have partnered with Renew Wellbeing and want to be open about all our needs for support and understanding. SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION AND OPENING TIMES
We believe that God hears our prayers and is hearing your prayers too as you search for him. Why not check out TRY PRAYING which is a short prayer guide for people who are not necessarily religious. See more below
Life is hard and we are seeking to be real and honest as we encourage discussion about relationships. We find support in using the marriage course - which is for anyone interested in strengthening their relationship - but also just want to offer a listening ear if needed. The marriage course is not us listening in. It is time that you spend with your partner and it can be accessing online material. Contact us to check this out.
We believe the church is a community of people and that we need one another so we celebrate this by getting together often - online or in person. Get in touch with us and find out how you can share this sense of community
We believe Jesus was a real human being so he knows what it is to be like us. But we also believe he was fully God so his death has cosmic significance. We would love to walk with you through an ALPHA course. Contact us if you are interested.
Along with other churches, we support the local Foodbank and we seek to take an interest in all that is going on in the town and in our world as we address issues of climate change and pollution. We do this largely on an individual basis but connect regularly with TearFund in their Action work and also with BMS World Mission who regularly seek to represent countries who suffer most from climate change. Tearfund currently have a great project called "A Rubbish Campaign" - see below

We meet every Sunday morning at 11am in the Nairn Community Centre for around an hour followed by refreshments. We would love to welcome you to our church this Sunday.
we seek: - To be a caring and growing community of followers of Jesus
In practice, we commit to being a people who care well for our fellow believers and to increase in our love for our neighbour. We want to respond to God’s mission to be fruitful in doing good and in seeing others come to faith.
To have a place of our own which acts to serve the church and community
In practice, this means working towards this goal together in prayer and hope that such a resource will further the Kingdom of God. Whether the current plan works out or we have to think again, we are committed to finding a place that serves our needs and the community in sharing the gospel, through connection, care and communication
To encourage active, relevant faith, for all ages and stages
In practice, this means faith is being worked out by everybody, everywhere, every-day, and that we grapple with today’s culture and tough questions
To be a welcoming community - accepting all people with a compassion that faces the complexity of our culture
In practice, this means accepting all those who come to us at the point of their need and lifestyle, with a particular concern for the mental health needs of our community. Then, journeying with people in truthful discipleship, we develop an honouring and biblical walk with God
To be a positive influence in caring for God’s World
In practice, this means talking regularly about our climate as God’s creation and that we are given the task of being good stewards and gardeners. Then we seek to take action in our individual and corporate life to reduce carbon use, reduce waste, seek social and climate justice and resist consumerism. We want to act justly, love mercy, walk humbly before God
Our church is situated in Nairn, one of Scotland's most beautiful seaside towns.
Nairn is a small town with a big heart. With beautiful beaches and views over the Moray firth it is a place where the beauty of God's creation is easy to behold.
