Welcome to Shore Baptist.
Here on our site, or if you visit one of our services, we pray that you would see and experience the amazing love, grace and magnificence of the Lord Jesus, whom we worship.
On Sunday mornings we meet in a school hall. We have been here for 30 years and we really like the freedom that this facility offers us. We dress comfortably and most weeks you will be greeted at the door by a couple of church members. Our time together starts with singing. The musicians are of all ages with instruments ranging from flutes and violins to guitars and (gentle) drums. The music is a mix of new songs and old favourites. You might be surprised at the range of nationalities and ages in the fellowship. We are a church family.
In everything we do we try to bring honour and glory to Jesus Christ by keeping his word, the Bible, at the center of our worship. We read God’s word together. We praise God for His mercy and sovereign grace. We seek Him in earnest prayer for the needs of this world, our country, and for each other. The preaching is usually lead by one of the elders in the fellowship and most weeks other members contribute to the service as well.
We celebrate the Lord’s supper together monthly (first Sunday of the month) and this is followed, every second month, by a shared church lunch.
Every Sunday morning at 9.45am we have a prayer meeting prior to our morning service. All are invited and encouraged to attend.
Our children and youth meet before our morning service, at 9.30am, for Sunday School. The younger children (2-12 years) meet together to sing and have shared catechism instruction, and then break into age-based groups for Bible study.
Immediately after the morning service, hot and cold drinks and morning tea are provided at the back of the hall. This is an opportunity to get to know some people better and to ask questions.
There is an offering box in the church, but we don’t take up an offering during the service. Some members prefer to contribute electronically. Details are available in the church.
Evening and Weekday Meetings
We have evening meetings every second month on a Sunday evening. These have a slightly different character to the morning meetings in that topics and cultural issues are often discussed. There are midweek Care Groups in various homes, Theology and Bible study groups, prayer meetings, bi-monthly ladies meetings, youth activities and other events.
Beyond the Service
Opportunities for study and fellowship are detailed on our church website, on our Facebook page, in the weekly (emailed) Church bulletin, and announced at the end of the main service.
