What can I expect?
If you come on a Sunday, once inside you will be met by one of our folk who will introduce themselves, welcome you and answer any questions you may have. If you arrive before 9.45 you will be able to order a barista made coffee which will be brought to you. You are welcome to sit wherever you choose, however there will be people who can show you to a seat if you prefer.
If the building is open during the week you are always welcome to drop in where someone will make you a coffee and answer any questions you may have.
About Grange Baptist Church services
Sundays at Grange Baptist are casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as family. Our seating is varied with comfortable chairs, some of which are around tables. If you come with small children there is a special section where they can be themselves. If you arrive more than 15 minutes early you can also order a barista made coffee for a donation (free your first time!) and this will be brought to you when it has been made.
The morning service begins at 10am and goes for no more than 90 minutes. Typically services begin with music and a video. Song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of the service is complete, we have an opportunity for some family news before the children go out to their program and we hear a sermon explaining God’s Word in a way that is relevant and encouraging.
On the 3rd Sunday evening of each month we meet at 5 pm for Praise, Worship and Prayer. This is more informal and goes for about an hour
On the other Sunday evenings the young adults meet at 5 pm for a Bible study.
(During the months of daylight saving, the evening events start at 6 pm - see the latest news page.)
What about my kids?
We work hard to ensure that children of all ages are welcomed, included and safe. There is space within our auditorium where you all can be comfortable and included as you choose. The kids’ program (Godspace) is during the second half of the service and follows the same theme as the sermon. This occurs through stories and activities and is provided by teachers who value children and have current police clearances and up to date child safe training. Godspace is offered for all our morning services throughout the year (except for school holidays) and for all children from infants through to year 10.
