Harehills Lane Baptist Church is a gathered community based in the Harehills and Chapeltown area of Leeds. As a church family we are an inclusive community, welcoming a wide mix of people from different walks of life, many nationalities and languages, across ages and traditions, and with different theological views. We come together as people in the Kingdom of God to worship and to live, in commitment to Jesus Christ and His mission in our world – and hopefully this website gives a reflection of what that means from our perspective.

As a Baptist church we hold certain beliefs, these are all explained well over at the Baptist Union website. If you asked ten people at Harehills Lane what it meant to be a churchgoer here you would likely get ten completely different answers! But we want to welcome everyone to our church family, whoever you are and wherever you have come from.

The Church currently has a Team Leader, Rev. Graeme Dodds, and several church members who form a Leadership Team. HLBC is a member of the Yorkshire Baptist Association, the Baptist Union of Great Britain and of the Evangelical Alliance, and is part of Churches Together in Chapeltown and Harehills.
