Some of our congregation

Our aim in worship is to draw people closer to God. We want the services to be relaxed and welcoming to people of all faiths and none. We recognise the value of worshipping together as a whole church, so our morning services have a multi-generational dynamic.

The morning services pick upon on our desire to make Everyone Welcome they are therefore informal in style and seek to include everybody. We have a ‘Come as you are attitude’. In fact as someone commented recently, ‘You don’t have to dress up to come to church. One of our Pastors wears jeans!’

We are broad in our choice of music trying to use the best from all church traditions. We are increasingly using art and new media in our services.

Sunday Morning Services start at 11am

There is a crèche under 3, and also groups for children and young people up to the age of 18. Kid’s Club for 3-10 and 24/7 year six to year 13. All Join In Service when the whole church (all ages) come together to worship and explore God’s word. Three times a year we hold parade services with the Scouts and Guides.

Sunday Evenings

Evening Services come in many flavours and forms. Consequently, they tend to change quite regularly. To keep track it is worth taking a look at the Weekly Newsheet.

Some styles are regular such as – Healing Communion (6pm, 1st Sunday of the Month); Classic Church (5pm, 3rd Sunday); Pub Church (7pm, 4th Sunday in The Claude Pub). Then there are others that come in and out of the programme like Film Nights; Contemporary Service; My Story and Chat ‘n Church. Our aim in ringing the changes is to engage faith with life.

The Mount Church (Kerala)

We also have the privilege of sharing our building with an Indian Congregation who meet weekly on Sunday Nights from 5pm in the Upper Hall.

Causeway

prospects - access to lifeWe are pleased and privileged to have a Causeway Group as part of Albany Road Baptist Church. The group meets twice a month at 3pm every 1st and 3rd Sunday. This is a growing group that encourages and supports those with learning difficulties. Its aim is to help them come to Know Christ and Grow in Faith. One of the highlights of the year is the Causeway Christmas Carol Service.


Quiet room

Quiet room

There is a small Nursing/Quiet room to the left of the foyer in the front of our Church for mothers with babies and young children. Please feel welcome to use it during the services for privacy and quiet time. However because everyone is welcome do not feel obliged to do so. This facility is offered for your comfort.
