Worship at FBC


Every Sunday morning at 10.30am we gather in the Church building for worship. Since 19 July 2021 the government has left it up to individual churches to put in place their own COVID-19 safety measures and we have chosen, for the time being, to retain mask wearing, some social distancing and a few other measures. We have, however, reintroduced singing from behind our masks (Hurray!)

Recognising that some people may be happy to sit with anyone whereas others would prefer to only sit in their "bubble," we now operate 2 different types of seating, one of which needs booking and the other which doesn't . So if you would like to worship with us then please go to our seating page to see what is on offer by clicking here.

If you would prefer to worship from home, then you can join the livestream of our service on our YouTube channel by clicking the FBC LIVE button below.

Prior to 2020 we met in a different way. As a means of nostalgia or as a prelude to what may return in the future, this is what things used to look like in the good ol' days!

On most Sundays of the year, there are three opportunities to meet together to worship:
 
  • 9:00 am: Early Morning Communion
  • 10:30 am: Morning Service
  • 6:00 pm: Evening Service (starts with refreshments)

Our 9:00 am Early Morning Communion Service meets in the church lounge and is a simple half hour meeting breaking bread together with a short message.

At our 10:30 am Morning Service, which usually lasts about an hour and a half, we enjoy singing songs both modern and sometimes more traditional, prayers and listening to a talk.  Most Sundays we run activities for children from crèche age up to school year 9.  On the last Sunday of each month, the 10:30 am service is an all-age service, so adults and children stay together to worship and learn.

Our Evening Service is a Café-style church, and starts at 6.00 pm with refreshments and then leads into a service with contemporary music and a message from the Bible.

For details about services this week, see the Services information on the home page, and if you have any questions about our Sunday Services or need to get in touch with us about any other enquiry we will be happy to help.  Please Contact Us for more information.

Planning your Visit

Welcome 4

New to Church?

Welcome!  Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about Frimley Baptist Church.

The Church is involved in many activities, for all ages, some on a Sunday and many in the week. All these activities are explained in more detail under the "What's On" pages.

If you are wondering what would happen if you visited us on a Sunday, here's some information that we hope you will find helpful:

 

Where and when does the church meet?

Most Sundays we meet at 9:00 am, 10:30 am and 6:00 pm.  The style and content of these three services are quite distinct, but you will be very welcome at any service.  The service pattern is explained on the Sunday Services page and the details of the services this week can be seen on the Home page.

We meet at:
Frimley Baptist Church, Balmoral Drive, Frimley GU16 9AR.
You can see a map on our contact us page
 

What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go or provide you with more information to take away.

Depending on which service you visit, the content and style will be slightly different, as explained above.  At all services there will be some singing (which you can join in or not!).  At the 10:30 am and 6:00 pm services the minister, or one of the members of the Church will give a talk based on a Bible passage or theme from the Bible. The speakers often use audio visual aids as part of their talk.  The 9:00 am is a communion service with a short reflection from the service leader.

Usually tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the 10:30 am service and before the 6:00 pm service, where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
 

What happens for the children at church?

Other than the first Sunday of the month and through the month of August, we run children's groups in part of the morning service (10.30 am) to which all young people (ages 0-14) are welcome.   Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship (sing songs) together for the first part of the morning.  Someone will announce when the children go to their programme.  You will need to go with your children to register them if it is your first time with us.


For more information about what happens in the children's work please visit the relevant age groups for you under What's On.
 

Is there a dress code?

No!  Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
 

Will I have to join in?

Not at all!  You are free simply to observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.

 

I have more questions, how can I get in touch and ask them?

Please feel free to contact us.  If you want to know who works in the Church Office, check out our Leadership and Staff page.
