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.

You can join the livestream of our service on our YouTube channel, and catch up on previous services, by clicking the FBC LIVE button below

Do we have COVID restrictions in place?

At Frimley Baptist the wearing of masks or maintaining social distancing is 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.

Although self isolation is no longer a legal requirement for anyone who has Covid, for the safety of the vulnerable we would ask that if you have Covid symptoms that you do not attend our meetings. In addition, we continue to suggest that any of our Church family who is still 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 9.00am 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.

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?

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

On Sundays we meet at 10:30am in the building as well as live steaming the service over Youtube. The livestream and all previous services can be viewed by clicking the following link

On the first and third Sunday of the month we also hold a 30 minute communion service from 9.00am-9.30am. 

When worshipping with us, the decision to wear a face mask or socially distance is the personal choice of the individual. More details concerning seating arrangements can be found by clicking here.  
 

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.

At our main service there will be some singing (which you can join in with or not!), prayer, a Bible reading and a talk based on a Bible passage or theme from the Bible. The words of the songs, Bible reading and visual aids during the talk are all projected onto the wall for easy viewing. A monthly printed noticesheet is also available giving details of the various events taking place during the month.


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 church' alongside the morning service to which all young people (ages 0-14) are welcome.   Children stay with their parents for the start of the service and then someone will announce when the children go to their groups.  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.
