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 and this will be brought to you when it has been made.
The morning service begins at 10am goes for no more than 90 minutes. Typically services begin with the band leading in music. 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.
The evening service is more informal and begins with a light meal and music at 6.00pm followed by some input (usually via video from some of the worlds best Bible teachers) and then opportunity to reflect on or discuss what has been heard. The evening service does not normal go for much more than an hour. At this stage there are only a small number who attend but we are working on it becoming a significant Cafe style service for the youth and young adults and families of the Church who can't attend Sunday mornings, or prefer this more informal style.
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 and for all children from infants through to year 10.
