Whether you’re new to church, new to the area, or just interested in finding out more about Jesus, our Sunday services are the place to start. We’d love to meet you and help you meet Jesus.
We are located on the corner of Bolton St and Guildford Rd in Guildford NSW. It takes 5 minute to walk here from Guildford train station. There is some parking in the church car park, but you may need to park on Bolton St, Roseberry Rd, or in the IGA car park off Talbot Rd.
We have three church services on a Sunday:
Our 8am service is more traditional. We use an Anglican prayer book, sing hymns and have morning tea after the service. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first and third Sunday of the month.
Our 10am service has a kids program for children aged between 3 and 12 years old. There is also a cry room and crèche for under 3s. We sing a mix of songs and hymns and have morning tea in the hall after the service. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of the month.
6pm (School Term)
Our 6pm service is less formal and is on during the school term. Music is simple, and we celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of the month. We finish with dinner in the hall.
What to Expect
It can be hard going somewhere new, so here is what you can expect when you visit us.
You should be welcomed with a smile by one of our church members at the door as you come in. You’ll be offered a name tag sticker (we all wear one!) and invited to sit. Our services typically run for an hour and a half. We have morning tea (8am & 10am) or dinner (6pm) after church. You are most welcome to join us.
We start by singing a few songs. The songs are about God and about what Jesus has done. The words will be in a book or on the screen, but you can just listen if you want.
We listen to the Bible
God wants us to know him and to have a relationship with him. He speaks to us through his book the Bible. In our church services, someone will read the Bible out loud, then another person will speak to help us understand what the Bible means and how it should change our lives now.
God cares about us. Jesus made it possible for us to come close to God. We can talk to God at any time and anywhere. A couple of people will pray out loud in our church services. We show that we agree with them by saying “Amen” after they finish. They will thank God for what he has done for us, and ask him to help various people. There are some prayers we say together, but don’t feel like you have to join in.
We remember Jesus’ death
Jesus’ death and resurrection is the most important event in history. We remember Jesus’ death when we sing, listen to the Bible and pray. On the first Sunday of the month, we also remember Jesus’ death with a symbolic meal. This meal is called the Lord’s Supper or Communion. If you love and follow Jesus, feel free to join in.
