Castlehold Baptist Church

Local initiatives

Volunteers from Castlehold join with Christians from other Island churches to show the love of Jesus in practical action and to share the hope He brings. Local initiatives involving people from our church include:

Street, School and Prayer Pastors

Caring, listening, helping

Street Pastors is a national, Christian organisation. Teams of volunteers help to make our streets safer, especially at night, by offering reassurance, safety and support to people they meet who may be in distress or difficulty. School Pastors support their school or college community by offering a reassuring and friendly presence to students.
Street and School Pastors are supported by Prayer Pastors, who spend time praying for the Street and School teams, and the people they meet with.

Open the Book

Bible storytelling in primary schools

Through this nationwide project, teams prepare dramatised Bible stories to share with children at school assemblies.


The Trussell Trust

Supplies for Foodbank are regularly donated at Castlehold and transferred to the main distribution centre at Cowes.
