What happens at Two:23?
Two:23 host five meetings a year where we worship together, are inspired by wonderful speakers, and catch up with others. Check out our previous meetings here.
Our meetings take place in person at Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, and are also streamed live.
Our next meeting will be on Saturday 16th September 2023, and will be followed by time to have coffee together in church. Everyone is welcome, especially if you are joining us for the first time. Arrive from 2pm for a 2.23pm start. No need to book in advance.
We also host a Zoom call at 4.15pm after each meeting for those watching the livestream at home. You can get the links to join us online by clicking on the link at www.two23.net.

Where does Two:23 take place?
Our Saturday afternoon in-person meetings take place in the main sanctuary at Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church in central London.

Is Two:23 accessible?
Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church has step-free access throughout, with the sanctuary, foyer and accessible toilets all on one level, and spaces among the pews for wheelchairs. There is access to the rest of the building via a smallish lift (let us know if you need to know dimensions) although Two:23 usually only takes place on the ground floor. Tottenham Court Road tube now also provides step-free access to the Northern and Central lines.
After the meetings people often move on to a nearby restaurant, which is fully wheelchair accessible, and a nearby pub, which unfortunately does not have wheelchair-accessible toilets. We are currently trying to track down a fully step-free alternative.
Additionally, we stream the meetings live to our website for those who can't get to our in-person meetings, followed by a Zoom call.
