Do you want to be inspired, encouraged, challenged to go deeper in your faith? Would you like to know who you are in Christ? Are you interested in hearing from God and establishing an intimate relationship with Him? Is your desire to make a difference for Him - to impact the world around you based on your identity in Christ and your intimacy with Him?
All services include an extended time of prayer and praise, a short talk and time for ministry and prayer, finishing at 8.15pm.
WHAT TO EXPECT
All our services include teaching from the Bible, prayer and singing. If you’re new to being in church, it can all feel quite unfamiliar at first. Don’t worry about feeling awkward or being unsure about what to do – feel free to simply sit and watch, or ask someone nearby to explain. Take time before or after the service to meet other people and find out more about the church. We serve coffee and tea after the morning services in the lounge.
You’ll find someone who can answer your questions at the information desk. St Paul’s church has always put a high value on Bible teaching. We believe that the Bible is God’s word to us, which enables us to know him and to know how to respond to him. Our preachers are passionate about helping us to understand the Bible’s meaning and to see how it applies to life today. The sermon takes up about 30 minutes of our normal services.
Singing together has always been a part of Christian worship. We sing several songs in each service, with a mix of contemporary and traditional songs.
Prayer is another vital element of any Christian service. We express our praise and thanks to God as well as asking him for his help. We pray for personal needs, issues within our community, and the needs of our broken world. There are always people available for services if you would like someone to pray for you.
Another feature of every service is the offering. This is primarily an opportunity for regular attendees to give to God’s work in and through St Paul’s.
