Template:Copyedit Template:Infobox church Teddington Baptist Church is an evangelical Baptist church at Church Road in the London suburb of Teddington. Its mission statement is "To bring Christ to our community and our community to Christ."

The church's origin dates back to 1877, when members met in a rented room. It was officially established in 1881. The church's following grew rapidly, and by 1895 the church inaugurated a building with a seating capacity of 500. Later, in 1908, it added on more extensive "Sunday" buildings. On 29 November 1940, enemy bombings in the Second World War destroyed the original church. A replacement was built in 1956.

The present premises in Church Road were remodeled in 2004 with a new glass atrium and front. This remodeling has enabled the church to host more community activities. The church has a wide range of activities which are described on its website, in addition to Sunday services at 10:30am and 6:30pm.

The minister at Teddington Baptist Church is Rev. Richard Littledale. He is a preacher working with the College of Preachers. He is also the author of the books about preaching including Stale Bread (published October 2007), The Preacher's A-Z (published April 2008),Who Needs Words? (published October 2011) and The Littlest Star (published December 2011). Every month he writes a topical article called Views on the News for the church's website. He also contributes to the BBC Radio 2 series "Pause for Thought".
