Sunday Morning Service 11:15 am
Morning services are held in the church building and also streamed on FaceBook for now: https://www.facebook.com/KirkwallBaptistChurch.
There are no limits on capacity but visitors will need to ‘sign in’ at the door for Track and Trace and face coverings need to be worn, although masks are not required for children under 12.
Sunday Evening Services are also held in the church building at 6:15pm.
Normal church services: After welcoming everyone, musicians and singers lead the worship. The words of the songs, mostly from ‘Songs of Fellowship’ by Kingsway Publications, are projected onto large screens. In school term time, part way through the service, the youngsters go out to the Crèche & Nursery, Sunday School or Bible Class while others remain to hear the speaker. This will usually be our minister, Tim Proudlove. On occasions a member of the Preaching Team will speak or a visiting guest speaker. The main Bible version we mainly use is the New International Version.
Sunday Evening Service 6:15 pm
Evening Services tend to be quieter and more reflective than Morning Services and there are no special provisions for children. The format of services may vary. Evening Services normally finish around 7:45 pm and are followed by tea, coffee and biscuits*, with time for chatting with friends and meeting new people.
*Tea & coffee is currently suspended due to Covid restrictions.
The normal timing for The Lord’s Supper is during Morning Service on the first Sunday of the month and at the Evening Service on other Sundays*. This is sometimes changed to accommodate special events and during the summer school holidays when family services take place.
*Currently we only celebrate communion monthly due to Covid restrictions.
