These are our regular activities; for special events, check our "News" page.
Sunday Mornings. We meet at 10.30am and generally finish 11.45-12.00. There will be a sermon – often with questions or discussions – and while that is happening primary age children can have a separate Bible Time or stay in the main meeting. There is a creche when required. Teas, coffees and soft drinks are served afterwards with conversations, prayers and making of new friendships.
As tardes de Domingo (Sunday Afternoons). Bethel Baptist Church (our Portuguese language sister church) meets at around 3pm.
Saturday Prayer. At 9.00am with a reviving tea or coffee if you need it. We pray for an hour or so. This little meeting has seen many answers to prayer and you can always ask us for prayer. Often sparsely attended but we believe it may be the most important hour in our week.
Midweek meetings are subject to change. Currently we meet as follows:
House Groups. These are Bible workshops with time for prayer. They are intended for anyone interested in the Christian faith and relating it to daily life. We are currently meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30 pm, finishing around 9.15, in the homes of church members. We call it a workshop, meaning that everyone together discovers and works at hearing God through the text, gaining new insights on the way. See the News page or contact us for more details.
Conversations about Faith. These are midweek discussions where people with other faiths are invited to compare what we each believe. Things that we may assume to be contradictory, often turn out to be more interesting than we thought. We are currently meeting on Wednesday evenings from 7 pm till 9 (not 20 or 27 December; restarting 3 January 2018), and Thursday mornings at 11 am and finishing around noon, in the church hall (entrance in Maddams St).
Wednesday Parent and Toddler group. Every Wednesday in term time, including half-term holidays. Starts 10am till around 12. We have lots of excellent large play toys and a large clean warm place with toy cars and tricycles, mini trampolines, sand trays and much more besides. Adults and children get to make new friends in a fun and safe environment.
