Our History

Easthampstead Baptist Church started about 53 years ago. At that time Bracknell was a new town and EBC was formed as the town began to grow.

A few people started meeting in a home and quickly our current site was acquired and the first building on the site was a builder's hut. The first building was built and was then redeveloped about 14 years ago to the building that we have today.

The church has been through some major transitions over the last few years:
  • 1989 Dane Baker was appointed as Senior Minister.
  • 1991 Steph Littlejohn was appointed as Pastoral Assistant. She then became Assistant Minister in 2008.
  • 1997 a new congregation was 'planted' at the Crown Wood Primary School. The South Hill Road congregation continued at our main site.
  • 1998 Chris Porter was appointed as Student Minister to work with the congregation at Crown Wood.
  • 2001 a second congregation was 'planted' at the Sports Centre and was called 'Explore'. Chris Porter was appointed as Assistant Minister.
  • 2007 Dane Baker left to go to another church.
  • 2008 Chris Porter was appointed as Senior Minister.
  • 2016 Chris Porter left to go to another church.
  • 2016 Simon Lace and Steph Littlejohn take on roles as acting Senior Ministers
