I’M NEW HERE

WHAT TO EXPECT


WE ARE SO PLEASED YOU HAVE FOUND OUR WEBSITE

WELCOME

Church is more than Sundays – It’s about all of life. That’s why we also get together at other times of the week. We’re seeking to be God’s community as we love and serve one another and reach out into the community around us. We believe our faith goes far beyond Sundays. We’re encouraging each other to live out that faith in the home, the workplace and the community.

We do gather together as a Church on Sundays at 10:30am and 6:30pm (5:30pm in winter) and these meetings are at the heart of what we do in the wider week. If you’re new to church here are a few things you can expect to happen when we meet on Sundays.


WHAT TO EXPECT

WE SING

Singing is one of the many ways we worship God and express our love and thankfulness to him.

WE PRAY

Prayer is simply talking to God, so it makes sense that we pray quite a bit when we meet as a church.

Specially for Kid's

Children are really welcome at PBC and we encourage them to be involved. At some point during the morning service kids go out to special groups. There’s also a crèche.

WE LISTEN TO A BIBLE TALK

A section of the Bible will be read, usually the part the preacher will be talking about in the Bible Talk. We believe that the Bible is God’s word and that is not only relevant, but essential for life today. That’s why we are committed to clear and faithful preaching from the Bible. We work hard to make sure that God’s word is explained and applied to our lives.

LET US KNOW YOU ARE COMING

WHERE TO FIND US

How do I get there?

Prettygate Baptist Church is situated in the centre of Prettygate, a large housing estate to the west of Colchester town. The church can be found on Prettygate Road, nearly opposite the library and about 100 metres from the shops on The Commons.

Where should I park?

There is off road parking at the front of the building for 10 or so cars and extra parking can be found along the road or behind the library. Several bus routes are available stopping outside the library and outside the Prettygate pub.

What should I wear?

Our church has a “come as you are” atmosphere. You will see some dressed up; some dressed casual.
