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?

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.
