NORTH SHIELDS BAPTIST CHURCH NORTH SHIELDS BAPTIST CHURCH
Sunday Sunday   starts   with   prayer.   Without   that   connection   with   God,   we’d   soon   be   lost!   So,   at   10:30   am   a   number   of   people   get together and bring it all to God. After that, the rest can happen. Worship Service 11:00   am   is   when   the   church   fellowship   gets   together   to   worship   the   Lord.   Normally,   we   start   off   altogether   and   after   about 20   minutes,   the   young   people   go   to   their   own   classes.   There’s   ‘Beginners’   for   the   very   youngest   (even   babies   get   in   on   the action!),   ‘Discoverers’   for   the   slightly   older   children   and   ‘Explorers’   for   those   in   double figures. At the moment, during the Covid 19 crisis, there are no young people’s groups. The   service   lasts   a   little   over   one   hour.   Everyone   is   welcome.   There’s   a   wonderful   group of   musicians   who   lead   the   singing   and   various   other   people   take   part   at   other   times.   We have access for the disabled and a loop system for the hard of hearing. What are the services like? We   enjoy   a   real   mix   of   noisy   and   quiet;   formal and    casual;    contemporary    and    traditional.    The congregation    typically    contains    some    babies, toddlers,   children,   teenagers,   young   adults,   middle-agers   and   senior   members,   so we   find   ourselves   responding   to   different   backgrounds   and   needs   in   every   service. That   means,   when   you   visit,   you'll   probably   know   some   of   the   songs   but   not   all, you'll   find   some   of   our   habits   normal   and   maybe   some   will   seem   a   little   strange (but only until you get to know us better). Normally,   after   the   service,   we   get   together   in   the   Hall   for   a   cup   of   tea   or   coffee and   a   chat.   Sometimes,   we   share   lunch   together   too.   Just   at   the   moment,   of course, we’re not doing that. We   don’t   have   a   regular   evening   service,   but   we   get   together   whenever   there’s   a   special   reason,   often   with   people   from other churches. Come along and join in the worship with us. It’ll be great to meet you!
