Sunday Worship

community celebration8Worship is important for us. Vibrant and authentic with opportunity for members of the congregation to contribute.

We gather each Sunday at either the morning and afternoon service anticipating God’s Spirit to move among us, to inspire our worship and enable us to hear and respond to His Word.   Grange Baptist is a child safe community and inclusive of all people from all backgrounds, cultures and abilities.

Sunday 10am – With the whole family we gather to spend time praising God and sharing what he has been doing among us.  At around 10.30 the children (3- year 6) leave us for their program.  The young people (years 7-9) leave just before the sermon.  Normally our service will finish by 11.30 when tea and coffee are enjoyed by all.

Sunday 5-6pm – Families and young adults gather in the old Church building for some enthusiastic and unplugged worship, before we break for a cuppa, and then gather again around tables for interactive and child friendly input and conversations on the theme for the day.   The message is typically the same essential content as our morning service but more succinct.  Families will often then arrange to meet together following the service for a meal.

The Sermons: We believe in the power and authority of God’s Word.  As a resultRPP_9165 (Copy) we place a high value on hearing it read and listening to it spoken about, fully expecting that God, by His Spirit will use His Word to transform our lives.  Sermon notes are provided most weeks (also on You version).

Worship ministries  – Our worship ministries include three music teams, a creative ministries director and a team of people responsible for our technology.
