You also, like living stones, are being built in a spir... 1 Peter 2:5
We are a warm fellowship where visitors quickly feel at home and are welcomed. As we meet, we seek what God has for us as we grow in our understanding, relationships, service and worshiping life. We believe our purpose is to declare God purpose, develop Christian disciples and demonstrate God's love for us.
We aim that each individuals will grow in their faith and equipped for services through the preaching and teaching in the church.
* As a church, during this period of Lent we will be exploring during the Sunday morning and evening services, the events of Holy Week as recorded in Mark's Gospel. *
Wednesday 6th March marks the beginning of Lent for this year. During Lent, Christians are encouraged to prepare spiritually for Easter celebrations. Rather like a spiritual MOT, Lent is an opportunity to reflect on the extent to which Christians are fulfilling the two Great Commandments (to love God and our neighbour) and the Great Commission (Matt 28:18-20) and to seek God's forgiveness and help again.
Perhaps this Lent, you might like to undertake such spiritual preparation yourself. This is not just about giving up chocolate or caffeine or some other 'vice'. It is able about a determined, positive effort to engage with God. There are plenty of resources which you may like to use to help you including the following:-
We believe it is important to build up one another in the church family, and aim to do through services and activities. Sometimes, we share a meal or BBQ together. And our Monthly 'all age ' services bring everyone together to worship. Crayford baptist church is a magnetic, innovative and welcoming community church for all. Whatever your background or story feel free to come and visit us!
The Sunday morning service starting at 10:30am, is our larger and livelier service, with groups for children and young people (2 - 16). There is also a creche area for the littlest ones.
Music is provided by our organists & pianists as well as our worship group, so whether you prefer traditional hymns or contemporary worship songs, you are bound to enjoy the worship within the morning service which is lead by the worship team.
The first Sunday in the month is an All Age Service and the third in the month is Communion.
Our Sunday evening service starts at 6:30pm, is smaller and has been quite traditional, but the pastoral vacancy has given the opportunity to try new ways to share in worship and it is often quite informal. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday evening of the month.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after both services, to allow you to talk to others in an informal setting. We seek to be an inclusive church where all are welcomed, can find a home and find Christ. The whole building is fully accessible to wheelchair users (via the entrance from the car park) and a hearing loop is in operation during Services.
