Small Groups

Small groups at FBC are a fundamental part of our discipleship and caring for one another.

The groups provide a place where we can walk together as Jesus Christ's earthly body and learn to express His indwelling Life.

Small groups are built upon a basic foundation:

1. The Word of God
2. Caring for each other
3. Growing together


lifegroups

Small Groups meet at different times and days during the week, and during recent years have met/ are meeting in various ways. The groups are led in different ways too, with either a specific leader who:

 
1. Takes responsibiliity to initiate the calling of the group together
2. Has a heart for the group that desires for the meeting to be meaningful for all those gathered
3. Helps to motivate discussion
4. Expresses concern and encourages others to be concerned for the spiritual well-being of those in the group
5. Can represent their group at a leader/coordinator meeting

or a co-ordinator who:

1. Develops a rota for weekly meetings
2. Arranges a place to meet
3. Acts as a conduit for information and attends a leader/co-ordinator meeting


Each group has a great deal of freedom to work out how it will operate, but study material is provided during term-time matching the preaching themes for those groups that wish to use it, and free periods when groups can choose their own subjects.

 

If you wish to be part of a group please speak to Mac Wood, Pastor Glyn Thomas or the church office and they will happily suggest a group you can join.


If you have any other questions about small groups please get in touch with us by using the form on our Contact Us page or leaving a message in the Office on 01252 837844.

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?

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.
