What to expect
We understand that you may have never set foot in a church before, or at least not for a long time. Or Perhaps you have moved into the area from attending another church. Either way it can be a bit intimidating, what are they like? What do they wear? How long does it go for?
At Byford Baptist, we come from all walks of life, backgrounds, social status and nations. We all get along because of our love and trust that we put into Jesus Christ. We are not the suit and tie wearing type of church, however come as you are.
Our service starts at 9:30am and finishes around 11am, then we spend time together with a hot drink and share life together in our hall.
We do meet with purpose and a person, and that person is Jesus Christ. So, with that in mind we want to please God and what he has set out in his book called the bible. So we aim for the following;
Meaningful Worship - We are committed to Glorifying God and celebrating His grace together on Sunday's. Our desire in to respond to God's grace to us in Jesus through singing songs full of the gospel, hearing God's word read and taught, praying together and giving and serving together
Biblical Preaching - We place a high value on hearing God's word taught to us and seeking to apply it to our lives in the power of the Holy Spirit so we can live it out in the day to day. Preaching is therefore central to what we do when we gather for worship.
Loving Community - Though never perfectly we seek to serve one another in love, genuinely caring for others and encouraging one another’s growth in understanding and appreciation of God' love in Jesus
