Teddington Baptist Church is an evangelical Baptist church in Teddington in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. Its mission statement is "Bringing Christ to our community and our community to Christ." It is currently in pastoral transition as its previous minister (Rev. Richard Littledale) left in July 2016 (see below).

The first members of the church met in a rented room in 1877. The church was officially established in 1881.[1]

The premises were remodelled in 2004 with a new glass atrium and front area. Since the remodelling, the church has hosted a wider range of community activities.

Rev. Richard Littledale was the minister of the church for nearly 19 years (September 1997 - July 2016). He left in July 2016 to become the minister of Newbury Baptist Church. He works with the College of Preachers and is the author of books about preaching including Stale Bread, The Preacher's A-Z and Who Needs Words?. He has also written several short books for children including The Littlest Star, The Tale of the Little Owl and The Note. Every month his column Views on the News.[2] appeared on the church's website. He has contributed to the BBC Radio 2 series "Pause for Thought".[3]
