We meet every Sunday Morning at 11:00am for the Worship and Communion Service to which all believers who wish to remember our Lord Jesus are welcome.
This service is currently a little different from what would normally happen due to the impact of COVID-19.
This service lasts for approximately forty-five minutes, during which the male members of the church take part by praying, reading the Bible, or by giving a thought.
There is no set programme to the service as the men participate as they feel led.
Mid-way through the service we have Communion where the Lord is remembered in His sacrificial death, by taking the bread and wine representing His body and His blood.
After this, one of the men from the church gives a short message from the bible.
The Family service starts at 12:00pm on a Sunday and, as it's name suggests, it's for all the family.
We usually have a time of singing and some fun choruses for the kids - often with actions - and sometimes even a quiz. This is generally followed by a 15 to 20 minute talk by a visiting speaker or sometimes by one of the men in the church.
The preacher usually concentrates on the Gospel Message, telling everbody about the Love of God, shown in His Son, Jesus Christ, who died for all our sins on the cross at Calvary.
Just before the talk, kids aged 4 - 12 go to their Sunday School class where they are told a bible story and often get to do an activity relating to the story.
As Christians, we believe that it is imperative to learn more about the Bible and God's love and plans for us. This applies both to us as individuals, and as part of God's Church.
To this end, personal daily Bible study is important, but we also meet on the 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings at 6:30pm for a Bible study in the church. This usually take the form of a visiting preacher delivering a talk for about 30 minutes.
However, on some occasions, a special report may be given, a video shown, or a praise night held.
Currently, we meet online via Zoom on a Wednesday evening at 7:30pm.
Just as we regard learning about the Bible to be important, so we also regard prayer as being imperative.
Just as personal prayer is important, we also meet in the church for a time of prayer.
Prayer serves several different functions, such as:-
To worship God
To give thanks
To pray for those in need
To pray for God's guidance
This is a very important and exciting service which is imperative to the life of the church.
On Monday afternoons at 2:15pm (from October to March only), Nan Shields and a team of ladies from the church, hold a series of meetings specifically for women.
A pleasant time of fellowship, including singing some hymns and a cup of tea, and is followed by a message from a visiting preacher.
On some occasions, a choir will visit, or a special report is given.
This service is attended by many ladies across the town of Renfrew, and Nan and her team will give you a very warm welcome any time you would like to attend.
