Prayer
Prayer

Prayer is simply conversation with God.  It’s about spending time with Him and building a relationship by talking and listening to Him.  God wants us to talk to Him about everything, and to share our concerns for ourselves and those of other people.

When we pray we open the door for Him to come into our problems and situations and work on them.  Prayer makes us partners with God.  Although we cannot change people, God can minister to their hearts and reach them.

At FBC we have great faith in the importance and power of prayer.  We frequently pray for each other when two or three meet together, for instance in our Life Groups, before activities or one-off events.  We also have specific times during the year when we open the church for extended or 24/7 times of prayer.

We also have various designated opportunities to pray for and each other.
 

Prayer Ministry

We see prayer ministry as an opportunity to come alongside those who need prayerful support.

Anyone in need of prayer after the Sunday morning 10.30 am service, can look for a member of the prayer ministry team.  They can be identified by the orange badges they wear and they will be available to pray for and alongside that person, bringing all their needs to God.  We know that, whatever their needs, God sees and hears our cries to Him and He comes to help and heal.

Please be assured that every request is treated with confidentiality and sensitivity. 
 

Early Morning Prayer

Every Wednesday morning at 7.30 am, a group of us meets at FBC to pray for the needs of our church, our country and the world.  Everyone is very welcome to join us.
 

FBC Prayer Email

Every day a prayer email is sent out to members of the Church, enabling them to pray on a regular basis for the families on the Church database and for people in the streets surrounding the Church building.

If you would like to receive a copy of this email or a hard copy that covers the entire month, please contact us.
 

Confidential Prayer Chain

This is a group of people within the fellowship who believe in the power of prayer and find it a privilege to pray for others.  Confidentiality is respected at all times.

If you are in need of prayer (either for yourself or for someone else), please do not hesitate to email Sue Stillwell or contact us and you will be put in touch with Sue.

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.
