Rome Baptist Church


Get involved

Serving is great way to get connected with others in the church! Even though you may be in Rome for only a short while, we encourage you to get involved in whatever way you can.


A nursery is provided for on the second floor during the Sunday morning service at 10.30AM. This is aimed at children under the age of 3 so that their parents can take part in worship more fully.

Children’s Church

Children aged 3-10 years are asked to stay with their parents for the first part of the worship service. After the children’s sermon (see below), they are encouraged to go upstairs for a Bible-based program especially for them.

Children’s Sermon

During the worship service there is a special sermon of about 5-10 minutes aimed at the children (and the adults can benefit from it, too!). The children are encouraged to come to the front of the church for this.

Youth ministry

The Youth meet for Bible study every Sunday morning at 9:30AM. They also take part in other fun activities, in particular during the summer.

Free English Classes

These take place on Tuesdays from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. We started with 5 students and now many Tuesdays are filled with more than 100 students! This is a wonderful outreach tool: many of our students get to read the Bible for the first time. More teachers are always welcome- you do not need any special skills other than the ability to speak English!


The RBC library has a wealth of material for adults and children in English and Italian. We welcome browsers, contributors, newcomers, old-timers, young, old and everyone in between. The library is situated on the 2nd floor of the church building.
