Worship at FBC
What are our services like?
Every Sunday morning at 10.30 we gather for about an hour and a half to sing Christians songs (both modern and traditional), pray, read Scripture and listen to a talk. Most Sundays we run 'children's church' from crèche age up to school year 9 with the children usually joining the start of the service and then going off to their own groups. The first Sunday of the month is an all-age service where adults and children stay together to worship, learn and usually laugh a lot!
Our morning service is videoed and live streamed on YouTube, and as such can be viewed by anyone who has access to the internet. Unless you sit at the back of the room, it is possible that you may be briefly caught on camera and it is assumed that by attending you are giving your permission to be included in this way. It is the responsibility of adults of children under the age of 18 to ensure that their children do not appear on the cameras in this way if they do not wish them to.

Do we have COVID restrictions in place?
From 12 December 2021 it became mandatory to wear masks again whenever we gather for worship but observing any other forms of restrictions such as social distancing are the personal choice of every individual. To support that choice we still provide sanitiser at the door and keep the rooms well ventilated. We also continue to provide 2 different types of seating. If you are happy to sit anywhere with anyone then you can just turn up without booking a seat but it you would prefer to use socially distanced seating then you need to book your seat. Details on how to do that can be be found by clicking here
We ask everyone who has tested positive for COVID, has COVID symptoms or COVID-like symptons to not attend our meetings. In addition, we recommend that any of our Church family who is deeply unsure about coming back to worship with us in the immediate future should remain at home for the time being and worship with us online. If you choose this option then please inform us of your decision so that we can continue to support you pastorally.
What about refreshments?
We currently are not providing refershments before or after our Sunday service.
Do we ask for money?
Everything we provide on a Sunday is free but people can make a financial gift during the morning service (baskets are provided for this purpose) that is used to help support local, national and international needs. This is a freewill offering, so you are not under any compulsion to give towards it.
Do we have any other services on the Sunday?
We run a short communion service at 9.30am on the first and third Sundays of the month. Before the pandemic we used to hold a weekly 'cafe church' type service at 6pm but this has more recently been replaced with occasional prayer and reflection or praise meetings. Our monthly newsheet provides details of all our forthcoming services.
