'FOR I DETERMINED NOT TO KNOW ANYTHING AMONG YOU, SAVE JESUS CHRIST, AND HIM CRUCIFIED'
1 Corinthians 2 v 2
We are a Bible believing Baptist Church formed in 1878. We hold to the doctrines of grace, commonly summarised as the 'five points of Calvinism', contending for the work of the Holy Spirit in conversion, leading to the fruit of a godly, upright life.
Our services are traditional and reverent, in line with the clear teaching of the Bible. Worship is designed to lift up our minds in praise, thanksgiving, repentance, dedication, intercession, and the hearing of God’s Word. It is not intended to entertain, but to bring us to appreciate Almighty God.
We have preaching services on a Sunday and Tuesday and a prayer meeting on a Friday when an address or short talk is given, usually progressing through a book of the Bible week by week. Sunday morning begins with a Sunday School at 9:30am which lasts for about 45 minutes. The morning service begins at 11:00am and lasts for approximately 75 minutes. The evening service begins at 6:00pm and is a similar length. Afterwards we usually have a time of fellowship at the rear of the chapel with hymn singing and light refreshments to which all are welcome.
Our week evening services start at 7:30 and last usually an hour.
There are facilities for looking after children in the community room at the rear of the chapel.
We have a warm and friendly environment and a welcome is extended to any who would like to join us for worship.
