Visitors are very welcome at our church meetings any Sunday. If you haven't been to a church before or haven't been to a church in a long while, we understand that you might wonder what it is like at one of our Sunday meetings.
First, expect a range of different people: some are grandparents, some are married, some are parents, some are single, some are kids. We come from different ages and stages in life.
Next, expect to find us spending a lot of time talking about God and his Son, Jesus Christ. We do this in all sorts of different ways - singing, praying, reading the Bible, teaching, and in personal conversation. We are excited about Jesus and being his people, and want to help each other live for Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
Finally, expect that it's okay if you haven't been to church much before. We'll try to make it clear what's going on, and you won't need to say or do anything you don't want to.
If you have questions on a Sunday, please feel free to ask them to the person leading the meeting or the preacher over morning tea in the hall after the meeting. Remember, we love to talk about Jesus so feel free to pepper us with your questions!
How long is a church meeting at Carlingford Presbyterian? Most of our meetings take around an hour for the formal service. Then everyone is invited to stay around for morning tea.
