Pastoral Care

10539658sAs part of God's family, caring for each other is vitally important and a real privilege.

The Bible says:

BibleIf one part suffers every part suffers with it, if one part is honoured every part rejoices with it. Now we are the body of Christ and each one of you is a part of it.
(1 Corinthians 12:26)


Pastoral care is an attitude of care for each other and is the responsibility of every church member.

The prime place where everyday pastoral care and encouragement takes place is in our Life Groups, which is one reason why we encourage everyone to join one. In these small groups we really get to know each other well and this enables us to provide mutual support and encouragement as we need it. For those who are not regularly part of a group or for more serious needs, a small team provide care and support when required.

Other ways in which we offer pastoral support are through:
 

  • Prayer Ministry
  • Confidential Prayer Chain
  • our Welcome team
  • Bereavement support
  • Practical help (e.g. meals in times of crisis etc.)
  • Visits to those in hospitals or housebound
  • Distribution of flowers and cards
  • Parenting courses
  • Marriage preparation courses
  • Mentoring
  • our Church Counsellor
  • Financial support


We want everyone in our church to feel they are an important part of the fellowship. Therefore if you feel sad, lonely, ill or have any difficulties you would like help with, please let us know, so that together we can seek the Lord's comfort and support as much as we are able.

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.
