What We Do

Services

Our Sunday services start at 11am. Currently our services are online via Zoom as well as in person with Covid restrictions in place. You are welcome to join us both in the building and via Zoom by emailing pastor@avenuebaptist.org  or going through the contact box on the Find Us page.

 

Groups and Activites

  • On the first Wednesday of every month at 8.00pm we have a prayer meeting. Currently via Zoom.
  • On the second and third Wednesdays of every month we hold a house group. This is also being held on Zoom for the meantime.
  • On the first Friday of every month there is a games night at 8.00pm, and on the third Friday we play table tennis, also at 8.00pm. These events are currently not running during this lockdown.

Youth

Our youth group is for Years 7 and up. Often there is a discussion about a Bible passage or topical subject, plus some chat and games. Bring your difficult questions! We can’t promise to bring an easy answer, but we’d love to talk about it with you.

Our youth group has started back up after lockdown, but in smaller groups on an ad hoc basis.

 

Guides

We have also hosted a Guides troop for many years. If you would be interested in more information please contact them via Andrew Jones (see the contacts page)

Children

Sunday Services

Our Sunday services are all child-friendly, with a creche in the main hall for the youngest children. There is also a Sunday School for those from 3 to 11. We encourage questions and interaction, and we don’t expect children to be silent!

Rainbows and Brownies

The church hosts Rainbows and Brownies groups, and if you would be interested in one of these groups, please contact their leaders via Andrew Jones (see Find Us page).

0-3s Group

On a Friday morning from 10.00am to 11.30am (during school term times) there is a very well attended 0-3s group. For safety’s sake we have to limit numbers, so please get there early. Sessions include messy craft, dressing up, playing ‘in the kitchen’ or ‘on the farm’, a book area for chilling out and singing time. We also hold several special events each year. Currently 0-3s will be closed until at least January 2022. This is in part due to a lack of helpers. Please continue to meet in Cator Park play area from 9.30am on Friday mornings to see friendly faces, but we will not alway have group leaders there.

Other one-off events will be displayed on the church calendar
