we’re back with face-to-face CHURCH services!
Contact us for more details
We have 3 face to face church services: 9am, 11am (with kids programs) & 5pm. We look forward to seeing you in person! You can also watch our 9am livestream service.
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:
9am – 11AM – 5PM
All of these services will follow the same format. The main difference is that the 11am service has a kids program for children aged between 3 and 12 years old, and there is also a cry room and crèche for under 3s. Space is a bit limited at 11am, so if you’re planning on coming, please contact us.
What to Expect
It can be hard going somewhere new, so here is what you can expect when you visit us.
The COVID-19 pandemic has meant we have put procedures in place to keep us as safe as possible. You should be welcomed with a smile by one of our church members as you come onto the property. You’ll be offered hand sanitiser, and at the door we’ll ask for your contact details. These will be kept for contact tracing purposes. Inside, an usher will guide you to a seat. Our services typically run for 45 minutes, with 10-15 minutes to chat afterwards
We Sing (NORMALLY)
We would normally start by singing a few songs together. Unfortunately, the best medical advice says this is something that can spread the virus. This means there will be no congregational singing.
Instead, we will have one singer sing an item to help us reflect on what we have heard in the Bible. 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. We’re still working out the safest way to do this.
