A Church of hope in the community

Halesford Baptist Church stands as a church of hope in the Westlake community. When contemplating attending church on Sundays, you should have confidence that you are coming to a "safe place" to worship God. Halesford is that safe place for you and your family. We have taken every precaution to make sure that your visit will be in a freshly sanitized environment so you can focus on your time worshiping God. 

UPDATE: Recently, our governor issued new restrictions on gatherings of 25 or more. These restrictions do not impact gatherings for instructional purposes. However, we take these guidelines seriously and will continue to urge mask wearing and physical distancing in all of our services. We have changed the format of our adult small groups (Sunday School) and moved the classes into larger spaces (Chapel & Gymnasium) for physical distancing. Finally, for your safety, the heating system for our church sanctuary is fitted with an ultraviolet light component to help protect against Covid-19 - and the sanctuary is sanitized after every service.
