Services

We have three church services every Sunday. We’d love to welcome you at one of them!

8am  Traditional Service

This service is for those who enjoy a more traditional Anglican Prayer Book service.

Hymns are sung with the organ (played through a digital keyboard) and the Lord’s Supper is held on the first and third Sundays of every month.  We have morning tea after the service each week in the room with the glass doors at the back of the church.

10am  Service with Kids Church

This service is relaxed, informal and contemporary in style. A children’s program operates during the service (see Kids Church).    The Lord’s Supper is held on the first Sunday of every month.  We have morning tea after the service in the hall next to the church.

6pm  Service (Night Church)

This service is more casual and relaxed and particularly caters for youth and young adults.  We run an unplugged style service most of the time with a couple of songs, open mic prayer, a Bible reading and a Bible talk.  The Lord’s Supper is held on the first Sunday of every month. Afterwards, we have dinner together in the church hall and hang out.

Kids Church

Kids Church is Church for kids!  We teach children the Bible in a way that they will understand, using games, songs, memory verses and craft.  Your child will be fully supervised from the time they leave the main church until morning tea. Kids Church runs during the 10am service. All Kids Church teachers and creche helpers have current Working with Children Checks and safe ministry training.

Crèche

For 0-3 year olds.  Leave your children with confidence knowing our volunteer carers are well-equipped to look after your child.

Little Lambs

For older pre-school kids and kindergarten.  Even though they are so small, they learn from the Bible, with simple stories, games, songs and craft.

KOK (Kids Of the Kingdom)

For kids from Year 1-2.  Structured lessons include games, activities, craft and lessons. 

JAM (Jesus And Me)

For kids from Year 3-5. They start with games and activities and are taught from the Bible using a curriculum that engages this age group.

Code Blue

For Year 6-7.  They start with games and activities, often together with JAM, then split off for their own Bible lessons and activities to challenge the older kids. 

Christmas and Easter

Christmas and Easter are really important services each year for Christians and Guildford is no different.

Easter

On Good Friday, we have a service at 9am. We celebrate the Lord's Supper and remember that Jesus died for our sins. Jesus died to set us free from our sins. He gave his life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45).

On Easter Sunday we have services at our normal times of 8am, 10am, and 6pm. We celebrate that Jesus Christ did not stay dead. Jesus rose again and defeated death. For Christians, death is not the end.

Christmas

Similar to Easter, we have a couple of major days where we celebrate Christmas at Guildford.

Carols in the Carpark
Held on the second Sunday in December, Carols in the Carpark is, well, a carols service in our carpark.  This is where we invite the whole suburb to swing by the corner of Bolton St and Guildford Rd, pull up a pew, mat, patch of grass, fold out chair or even a lounge in our carpark and sing some carols with us.  We also have face painting, BBQ, a jumping castle, balloons and heaps of things for the whole family.
Christmas Eve
We celebrate the eve of Jesus taking on flesh with one 9pm service at church followed by a light supper.
Christmas Day
We celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus with a 9am Christmas Day service followed by a free BBQ.  It wasn’t any ordinary birth, but the birth of Jesus, God’s son, who was sent into the world to save sinners (Isaiah 9:6, 1 Timothy 1:15).
