New to Church

If you've never been to a baptist church before, here's what to expect: 

  • People wear smart casual clothes, like going to a birthday party. People will be wearing jeans & t-shirts or shorts. 

  • We will pray. Most people will close their eyes, but you don't have to. 

  • We will sing songs. Some people might clap their hands or lift their hands in the air. 

  • People will come and talk to you. They are just trying to welcome you and make you feel accepted.

  • You can sit anywhere.

  • You don't have to agree with what the church believes to attend. 

  • When they pass a bag around to collect money, you don't have to put any money in. 

  • Your school-aged kids can go to their own program during church time. This only runs during school-term time. 

  • For kids younger than school aged, there is a room at the back where you can go to let them play. You can still hear what is happening in the service from the room & see through a window, but we can't hear you. 

  • We will drink tea & coffee and eat morning tea in the hall behind the church after the service. This is free.
