At Burgh Baptist Community Church - We are a FAMILY!
We would love YOU to be part of it!
Church might be completely new to you – that’s fine!
Sundays what to expect? We understand that trying anything new can be a daunting experience.
So here’s what you can expect if you visit us on Sunday morning:
When should I arrive? Sunday service starts at 10.30am, the church will be open from 10.00am so anytime between then. A member of our welcome team will greet you as you come into the building. They will be able to help you if you have any questions.
What about the children? Children of all ages are welcome and there is a Sunday Club for Primary school children and a Teenage group for older children. All our volunteers are DBS checked.
What to wear? Where do I sit? Anything and anywhere, the atmosphere at the church is very relaxed. People are friendly and there is no dress code. You’ll see some people dressed casually, or in a suit and tie and others in jeans and a T-shirt. You may sit where you feel comfortable.
What will happen at the meeting? During the meeting there will be a time of singing – usually around 5 songs (3-4 minutes each). Although singing is not allowed at present to comply with the coronavirus guidelines the words are provided on screen via youtube. Our worship songs are a mixture of traditional hymns and modern Christian music – from Edmond Louis Budry (Thine be the glory) to Matt Redman (10,000 reasons – Bless the Lord).
A loop system fitted in the Church just switch your hearing aid to ‘T’.
There will be a time of prayer (again, you can just listen in as we pray).
Prayer is offered after the service and a private area is available if preferred.
An announcement with the church news and upcoming events will be made.
A passage from the Bible will be read, and there will be a Bible talk or sermon (about 25 minutes in length). We aim for our meetings to last about 75 minutes.
An offering box will be available but there is no pressure for you to contribute.
Church is it just for Sundays?
Most definitely not! God is with us 24/7 and we aim to lead lives pleasing to Him. We do make mistakes, and understand we are not perfect, but we desire to make a positive difference in all aspects of our lives. To further encourage us we have midweek House Groups. House Groupswhich are currently held on church premises under the current guidelines, are a great way to get to know others in the church and to be real with each other about everyday living. We periodically run a Christianity Explored course fornew Christians, which is an interesting way to find out more about God and the claims of Christianity. No question is too silly and you’ll find other people also exploring God for the first time. If you would like to know more please contact us.
