Holiday at Home

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 - Unfortunately this years event has now been cancelled due to the COVID 19 issues.

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.
