Courses and Events

images-Events

We often run courses that will help you explore the Christian faith as well as putting on events with the aim of having fun together and blessing those in our local community.

Christianity Explored - this is a great way to have the opportunity to ask questions that we all have in small groups as we look at Mark's Gospel over about 8 weeks. It is free, relaxed, informal and great fun. You will not be asked to pray, sing or do anything else except come along with an open mind and of course those all important questions. Here's a question to start you with "If you could ask God one question, what would that be?"

Easter Egg Hunt - we run this community event every Easter Saturday. It's a free, loads of fun event for all the family with 100's of people following a trail of clues around the village (often bumping into Easter themed characters with goodies to give away), which ends with a short Christian themed video, face paining, activities for children and refreshments for all.

Clay Pigeon Shoot - this event is open to all men, regardless of whether they've shot a gun before or not. There's usually some friendly competition among the more experienced shooters but it's really a load of fun, and finishes with a BBQ, beer and a short talk from the Bible about God, faith and us. 

Harvest supper - Every October we have a great sit down meal in the chapel. Delicious food, a glass of wine, friendly company, washed down with coffee and a pithy talk about God, faith and us.

Look out for adverts for these on the Home Page or contact us for more information.

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 at 10:00am with 'The Lighthouse' especially for children. Check out the 'Children and Youth' page for more info. Children then come and join their parents  during the main service - which we try to make it accessible for them, though 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 (apart from when it includes communion - then it often lasts a bit longer). 


Parking - we have a large car park at the chapel

Accessibility - our whole building is fully accessible, with a lift for those who need help to get to the first floor. We operate a loop system for hearing impaired. 

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.
