I'm new

If you are thinking of visiting us for the first time here are a few questions you may want to know the answers to:

What is the Baptist Church?
Baptist believe along with all Christians that 2000 years ago God stepped into time by sending His only son Jesus to die on the cross in order to take the weight of our sinfulness. We believe that He rose again to show God’s authority over death and that for all who believe in Him receive the gift of to join Him in his Kingdom.

What style of preaching can I expect?
Bible based, relevant for day-to-day life, practical and easy to understand. Mostly this part of the service lasts between 20-25minutes. We believe the Bible is the spoken word of God, a map book, which he has provided to get us to the right place.

What is available for my child?
Children stay for the early part of the service and then go through into an adjoining room for their own activities. At the moment, we have very few children who come along and so the activity tends to be multi aged – but lots of fun.

What style of music do you play?
We use Mission Praise. We use keyboard accompaniment for a mix of songs from contemporary to the traditional hymns

What should I wear?
We encourage you to come dressed as you feel comfortable. While some are dressed more formally, others will come much more casually.

What are the services like?
The format of service will vary according to the leader. We sing around 5-6 hymns/songs; have a time of prayer, reading from scripture and the address. On the 4th Sunday there is a communion. Sometimes the leader will give an introduction to the address through a children’s talk and we have times of worship that includes several songs being linked together with music and prayer. Most services are about an hour long, with the communion service lasting a little longer.
