What we Believe

images-heart-shape

We believe in living out our Christian faith as effectively as possible, having an impact on those who have not yet heard or experienced the great news about Jesus Christ.


Evangelical Christians accept the revelation of the triune God given in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, and confess the historic faith of the Gospel therein set forth.  They include doctrines which are crucial to the understanding of the faith and which should issue in mutual love, practical Christian service and evangelical concern. The core doctrines are:
  • The sovereignty and grace of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgement
  • The divine inspiration of the Holy Scripture and its consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct
  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of fallen man, making him subject to God’s wrath and condemnation
  • The substitutory sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the sole and all-sufficient ground of redemption from guilt and the power of sin, and from its eternal consequences
  • The justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ crucified and risen from the dead
  • The illuminating, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit
  • The priesthood of all believers, who from the universal Church, the body of which Christ is the Head and which is committed by his command to the proclamation of the Gospel throughout the world
  • The expectation of the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory 

The Church is a member of the Baptist Union, and supports its basis of faith and practice which is:
  • That our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, is the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to faith and practice, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, and that each Church has liberty, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to interpret and administer His laws
  • That Christian Baptism is the immersion in water into the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, of those who have professed repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ who, “died for our sins according to the Scriptures; was buried and rose again on the third day”
  • That it is the duty of every disciple to bear personal witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelisation of the world 

Planning your Visit

New to Church?

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where & when does the church meet?

We meet at the Church Building (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 10:30am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive please do introduce yourself to someone, we are a friendly bunch.

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits after the church service finishes, usually around 11:45am, please do stay for a tea or coffee and a chat with fellow visitors and our church members. All refreshments are free.

You can see a map of our church location on our contact us page.

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and there are disabled toilets in the main foyer. Please let the person welcoming on the door know if you require any assistance.
 

Our Service

The main service begins at 10:30am with a warm welcome from one of our church members. Then follows a time of sung worship, led by our talented music team. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the bible. Sometimes people share things that they believe God is saying to the whole church family. This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it’s all part of our connecting with God. We then share news and notices, usually about what’s going on in the life of the church. Our Minister in Training or a visiting speaker will then give a sermon that is bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We then finish with a final worship song. Sometimes there is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.

What about my kids?

We love to have children join us, and welcome all ages! We ask that children be accompanied by their parent/grown-up at all times.

Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At the end of the first part of the service someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their Sunday School . You are welcome to go with your children to their group, if they would be more comfortable with this. 

The Sunday School activities vary depending on the age and theme but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.
