It's my first time at Bluntisham Baptist Church.

What will happen?

 

Arrival and beginning of service

We will welcome you warmly and do everything we can to make you feel at home and with friends.

Sunday worship begins at 10:30 but there is a lot of informal preparation going on beforehand, so the doors are usually open as early as 9:30. You might like to arrive from 10:15 onwards to allow time for parking and making your way in. There are usually two people at the main entrance at the front of the church saying Hello to everyone as they arrive, and this is an opportunity for them to welcome you and help you choose where to sit. Someone will introduce you to other people in church. You might also like to have a glance at the BBC News leaflet, our weekly bulletin detailing events and news concerning the church.

The service often begins with a short Bible reading and a time of sung worship. The words of all songs are projected on to the white wall at the front of the church. The person leading the service will introduce themselves to the congregation, so you know who they are.

Do I need to dress smartly?

You can come as you feel most comfortable. The way people dress for church is not important to God. Many people dress casually but we're a true mix of people, which means that others feel happier in their smart clothes. It's really up to you.

What about the rest of the service?

We worship together until about 11:00, at which point the children and young people leave for their activities with their leaders. The remaining congregation usually chat with each other for a moment to give parents an opportunity to return after taking their youngsters out. After this we usually sing more songs, listen to a Bible reading and then hear the main message from the person who is speaking.

What happens when the service ends?

When the service finishes, at about 11:45, we stay for a chat over coffee, tea and biscuits and catch up with each other's news. Stay as long as you like, but most people drift away by about 1 o'clock.

Do I just come along on Sunday?

You will be welcome at any of the other midweek activities that you feel are relevant to you. A quick look at this website underlines that there is plenty going on other than Sunday worship, or if you've come to a service you can find out more by chatting to people over coffee.

Do I need to believe in God to come to church?

No, but if something has aroused your interest in what Christianity is all about, then this is a great place to be. As a church we believe that God longs to have a relationship with everyone and that this is possible because Jesus – God's son – invites us to follow him.

How's your accessibility?

Our recent building improvements mean that we have an adapted toilet. The main church building is accessible and a parking space is available immediately outside the front door of the church to enable ease of transfer. There is a loop system for those who need it, and we can provide large print song sheets but it would be helpful to know in advance so that we can meet your precise needs.

Please call our church administrator Michelle Gore on the church office number (01487 843538) if you have any questions about accessibility.

Can I talk to someone before coming?

Absolutely. Call the above number and Michelle will arrange for someone to visit in person or speak to you on the phone. If you would like to be met at the front gate so that you don't have to walk in alone then we will happily arrange this.
