Mission

 Bible

As a church fellowship we recognise that we are part of the worldwide church and we are all blessed as we share together in the insights and witness of Believers across the whole world. Historically we may have thought of Overseas Missions as a one way journey, but we recognise that we share the responsibility to the command of Jesus to make disciples both here and abroad. All of us can be encouraged by Christians of other cultures, and there are ways in which we can help each other in the proclamation of the good news of Jesus.

We believe that some knowledge and experience of what God is doing in the UK, and beyond, is a vital part of our discipleship, and involves welcoming people from abroad, praying for missionaries and mission agencies, learning about mission, mobilising, sending people (including giving), and going ourselves (short or long-term).
 

Worldwide Mission Team

The Worldwide Mission Team seeks to stimulate and maintain an interest within the fellowship for worldwide mission in a variety of ways.  We:

  • Share up-to-date information here and in the weekly Noticesheet,
  • Distribute special topical leaflets,
  • Make people aware of other ministries around the world (including in particular the Baptist Missionary Society (BMS) and Home Missions Fund's Church of the Year.
  • Promote particular causes for our harvest and Christmas appeals
  • Hold Prayer Breakfasts
  • Organise occasional one-off Mission events.


The Worldwide Mission Team is also responsible for the allocation and distribution of 20% of the Church's income for on-going support of mission organisations, to support individuals working in full-time mission work and others in training, or on short-term projects.

As a church we support a number of world-wide and more local initiatives:


BMS World MissionBMS Logo-350

Baptist Mission Society (BMS) is a Christian mission organisation that aims to introduce people to Jesus in parts of the world where there are high levels of poverty and injustice, and the fewest Christians.
 

BMS World Mission motivates, trains, sends out, and resources mission workers (both local and expatriate), supporting them as they love the people they serve, and as they seek to share the gospel and alleviate suffering and injustice.

Baptist Union of Great Britain - Home Mission
Baptist Together

Home Mission supports, equips and empowers Baptist churches to reach their mission potential and share God's love in their communities. 

Money raised is used on a national and regional level to advise and help churches, including legal, ministerial and missional support, and nationally in engagement with government and with other churches.  On a more local level, grants are made available to churches for church planting and  mission projects.  (In its early days, FBC was itself a recipient of such help.)
 

Connect Counselling Service
ConnectConnect is a Christian organisation serving the community in and around Camberley.  It is a professional counselling service offering help and support to individuals, couples and families experiencing a range of problems, such as anxiety, depression, inability to cope, relationship issues, bereavement and more.

Connect relies on the generosity of donors to  bring in much of the income needed to maintain the service.
 
Camberley Youth for Christ

All the youth provision is run by the hard work and dedication of employed staff and volunteers.

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.
