Holiday at Home 

cruise ship arriving at tropical islandFor the last few years during the summer holiday members of FBC have run a Holiday At Home week for older people from the church and from within the community. They provide a week of interesting activities, usually following a theme, for those who may be unable to get away for a traditional holiday.  

In 2015 the church was transformed into a cruise liner, leaving from the Port of Southampton on the first day, calling in at the Port of Alexandria on route and finished on the Friday in the Carribean.  Activities included curling and quoits on the quarterdeck, a cruise on the Basingstoke Canal including a cream tea, a camel drive, movie quize and an entertainer singing good old fashioned songs.

In 2016 we celebrated all things Royal, with particular emphasis on the 1950s. Events included 'Royal Skittles', Musical Bingo, an Around London Quiz, musical entertainment by the U3A 'Singing For Fun' choir and a Royal Lunch - and that was just the first day! On the Wednesday we had a coach trip to Christchurch Beach, and the last day comprised various Royal activities, a Fish & Chip lunch, an opportunity to watch The Coronation during tea and a farewell talk by our minister, Glyn. 

In 2017 the church was turned into a safari park, with events including kurling and skittles, a 'What's that noise?' quiz, safari-themed entertainment, various other animal-themed games, fish and chip lunch on the Friday, and a trip to Bird World. 

In 2018 everyone returned to school and the church was transformed into St Frimians School - with old school desks, school rules, school dinner and a very strict headmaster!  A trip to Portsmouth was organised for the Wednesday and there were lots of entertainments, quizzes and much fun and laughter on the other two days. 

2019 - Theme: Markets. Games, entertainment, craft activities and even a cream tea on the Tuesday took place.  A trip to Chichester on Wednesday and a fish and chip lunch on the Friday finished off a great week.

2020 & 2021 - Unfortunately the event was cancelled due to the COVID 19 pandemic

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 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.
