Childrey Baptist Church was founded in 1785 and has been serving the Brookneal/Nathalie area ever since. Our beautiful church grounds offer a great place to worship and learn. Our friendly church staff are always willing to help serve you. Childrey offers a variety of Sunday School classes for every age; from children all they way up through senior adults. Childrey offers strong ministry programs for you to be involved in such as: Women of Faith, Team Kid, Youth Group, Golden Years, G.A.s, and more! To learn more information about these groups, please click on the "MINISTRIES" tab at the top of our page! We would love to have you come and worship with us and be a part of our growing church family! At Childrey Baptist Church, we always "Keep our eyes on Jesus."




Childrey Baptist Church offers a Modern Worship Service that begins at 8:30 am every Sunday Morning (unless there is combined service for special events such as Easter, Christmas, Homecoming, etc.) The modern service offers a more casual atmosphere and comtemporary worship music. There is also free breakfast with coffee, milk, water, or juice. It is a great place to worship and, because of it's early start time, it frees up the rest of your Sunday! So come and join us as we start each Sunday off with praise and worship to Him that deserves it! It's all about Jesus!
