Evening Service 6 00 p.m. Evening Services will take place on the first and third Sundays of the month only at 6 00 pm in the Church Hall. On the first Sunday of the month, it will be a traditional service which will include Communion. The third Sunday evening will be more informal and will take the format of worship and discussion. There will be NO evening services on the second, fourth or fifth Sundays of the month.
The children join the congregation for about 25 minutes of the morning service and then go into Junior Church for their own time of learning, worship and activities. Church Parades take place four times a year which are attended by the 1st Roxeth Beavers, Cubs and Scouts who are sponsored by the church. All the Junior Church children over 7 years stay in the sanctuary for these services.
Junior Church is divided into three age groups 3 - 7 years, 7 - 11 years and 11 - 14 years. Each group is led by a dedicated teacher and assisted by a rota of willing helpers from the congregation. Children are welcome in our church and are encouraged to feel comfortable within the church environment.
Style of Worship
Our style of worship at the morning services is relatively traditional to a Baptist Church, but we are open to variations and change. We mostly use 'Songs of Fellowship' for our worship songs and hymns and occasionally 'Baptist Praise and Worship'. We also project all the words on to a screen at the front of the church. Our pew bibles are the New International Version and the Bible Reading each week is read by a member of the congregation who is encouraged to use this version of the bible so that the fellowship can easily follow it. Our singing is accompanied by our talented organist either on the organ or piano. At present we have a number of enthusiastic singers who enjoy praising the Lord in song but we lack instrumental musicians to accompany us. We would welcome anyone who is able to play a musical instrument, particularly the piano, keyboard or guitar to share in our Sunday worship.
Our evening worship is less formal and numbers attending are much lower, therefore the services take place in the church hall rather than the sanctuary but nothing is lost in the worship.
