Gather & Grow

 

Sundays are unique

On Sunday mornings the whole church gathers. All kinds of people from all kinds of places with all kinds of backgrounds. Cross-generational, cross-cultural, the whole range of people come together as one local family of faith, all to serve one another, to encourage one another, to love one another, and give glory to our God and Saviour Jesus Christ together through serving, singing, preaching and praying. It was on Sundays the church began to meet because it was on Sunday that Jesus rose from the dead. Though we meet on different days in different ways, Sunday is when we gather together, reflecting that we are already gathered together in Christ... And all are welcome to join us. 

 

What Should I Expect?

On Sundays, you will be welcomed at the front door and shown where the service takes place. The service will usually begin with a welcome and some music - you may see people stand and sing along. Afterwards there will be a children's address or something for the family. Then after some music and prayer, a message will be given from a text in the Bible. At the end there will be plenty of time to interact with others, meet new people, ask any questions or ask for prayer, or simply enjoy some refreshments with others before folks leave.

Is there a Dress Code?

We have no formal dress code, so please dress as you normally would as though for a regular family gathering. Some people like to dress more formally on days like Remembrance, or more festive at Christmas, but most weeks the dress code just reflects the town on a regular day.

Will I have to Join In?

Not necessarily. You are welcome to participate or simply observe as you please. At the moment, we ask that any who attend comply with nationwide measure, and more than this, as a family of believers who love one another, we want to respect one another's choices and let our own choices be ones that reflect love and grace and patience with one another. So, if you are just visiting, there is no expectation for you to be doing anything in particular and we hope that you feel welcomed by our family here in Calderwood.

Some key information about the church...

 

When & where does the church meet?

Our Church meets every Sunday morning at 10.30am and most Sunday evenings at 7pm (sometimes at 4pm for food together instead of our 7pm service). Arriving 10 or so minutes early will help to ensure you get a parking space and seat in time for the service to start. You can park in either the car park behind the church or the Hunter House car park next door to the church.

We meet at:

Calderwood Baptist Church 
Maxwellton Road 
Calderwood

What should I expect when I visit the church?

In our morning service, there will be around 45 minutes of worship with the whole Church family when there will be singing, prayer, and a children's message. At this point, the children will leave for their own Sunday Club. The Bible will then be read and one of our pastors or leaders will preach from God's word. The service usually finishes around 12noon.

When we gather in the evening at 7pm, we usually spend about 20 minutes singing and praying before the Bible is read and preached. Our evening service usually finishes around 8pm.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after all of our services where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
 

What happens to the kids at church?

We have a fantastic programme for the kids at our Church. Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship together for the first part of the morning. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their programme.

We have a very gifted team of Sunday Club teachers who lead a great curriculum for all ages. We have the following Sunday Club classes:

0-3 years:     Creche
3-5 years:     Pre-School Sunday Club 
P1 - P7:        Sunday Club
S1 - S3:        Bible Class
 
For more information about our Sunday Club please visit our Sunday Club page.
 

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
 

Will I have to join in?

Not at all!
You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
