About Us 

images-About-Us

Our church is made up of people from all ages (lots of children and families through to those in their 90's) and walks of life. We love diversity and we love to see new people. What binds us together is our belief in Jesus and a commitment to follow him. We love to welcome new people in to join us so feel free to drop in at any time.

Our vision, based on Jesus' words in Matthew 28:19, is best summed up in two words - 'Going' and 'Growing'. We go to share the good news of Jesus with those who don't know him, and we want to grow to be passionate, fully committed followers. 

Our main weekly event is our Sunday morning worship service at 11:00am which is open to all and a warm welcome is guaranteed! In this service we focus on Jesus - worshipping him with joy through a lively mix of songs and hymns led by our band, in our prayers prayers and Bible readings and especially as we take time to listen to God speak to us as we listen to a  'sermon' (a Bible based talk). 

We usually get together again on Sunday evenings at 6:00pm. This time is more dedicated to equipping us as Christians and the format can change from week to week so it's always best to check the church calendar to see what's happening. Most evenings will include some Bible teaching as well as things like prayer, a focus on world mission, training, or generally encouraging and building each other up.  

Midweek we meet together to pray at the chapel or in 'Life groups' in people's homes. We believe that both are important for a  healthy spiritual life, so one of these happens every week. 

We have a range of events for children and young people as well as monthly events for ladies and for men. In addition, we have big set piece events like our Children's Holiday Club, Clay Pigeon Shoot and Harvest Supper where we connect with many people to share the message of Jesus. For all these check the church calendar.

Planning your Visit

Hello!

If you're new to church don't worry, so were most of us at some point! If you're thinking about coming along on a Sunday here are some basic bits and pieces you might find helpful.

Dress code - we don't have one! Just come in what you're comfortable in - God's much more interested in what's going on inside you than what you look like outside!

Singing - yes, we sing songs of worship and songs to encourage each other. Some of the songs are traditional but many have a contemporary feel to them. usually our music team of keyboards, guitar's, flutes and drums lead the singing. If you don't know the songs, or aren't really a 'singer' that's OK - you don;t have to join in!

Children: We love
children and they are always welcome. Sunday mornings start with 'The Lighthouse' especially for children. Check out the 'Children and Youth' page for more info. Children are then welcome to sit with their children during the main service - we try to make it accessible for them, but for younger one's you may want to bring something to help them. For the very youngest (0-6) we run and supervised creche during the service.

Bible teaching - this is a key part of what we do on Sundays. Each week one of our ministers explains a part of the Bible and helps us see how it applies to our lives the rest of the week. Our Bible teaching times are massively important to us because we believe that the Bible is God's word and the primary way he speaks to us - so we unashamedly make time to read and study it each week. 

How long? The Sunday morning service is a maximum of 1hr 15 min. 


If you need more information or would like help in some other way please feel free to email or call our minister, Stuart Balmer at stuart.fressingfieldbaptist@gmail.com or on 07864 654688. We look forward to saying hello in person soon.
