Whether you have attended church all your life or have never been at all, we know that it is not easy visiting a church for the first time. As you prepare to visit with us, we want to answer some questions you might have, so that you can have the best experience possible.
WHAT KIND OF CHURCH IS CARRICK BAPTIST CHURCH?
We are group of people who have believed on Jesus Christ for salvation and forgiveness of sins. We desire to follow the teachings of the Bible and to share the gospel and love of Christ with the world. We are an autonomous church holding to historic Baptist principles. We believe in teaching the Bible verse by verse. We believe in worshipping God through music, singing a mixture of hymns and choruses. We strive to make everyone who attends or visits with us feel welcome and comfortable.
WHEN ARE SERVICES?
On Sunday we have a Bible study starting at 10:00 am and a morning worship service at 11:00 am. Each service lasts about an hour and is followed by a time of fellowship over tea and coffee. We meet together each Thursday night at 6:00 pm for a midweek worship service which also lasts about an hour.
We also hold two different youth meetings each Friday (except for bank holidays). Primary aged children are welcome to attend our Kid’s Club on Friday afternoons at 3:30 pm for a time of games, snacks, songs, and Bible lesson. Our youth group (secondary and college age) meets together from 6:00-8:00 pm for games and Bible study.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We strive to focus more on the heart than the outward appearance, so please come dressed as you want, whether it’s jeans and t-shirt, business casual, or suit and tie.
HOW DO I GET THERE?
We are now meeting in the Gaelscoil Liatroma located at Castlecara Rd, Attifinlay, Carrick-On-Shannon, Co. Leitrim.
WHAT IS A SERVICE LIKE?
During the services, we will do our best not to point you out or make you feel uncomfortable in any way. Each service lasts about an hour and includes a time of prayer, singing, giving, Bible reading, and Bible teaching. After the service, feel free to speak to our pastor if you have any questions about the teaching.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
Children are welcome to attend the services and there are creche facilities available for young children. Please don’t feel stressed about bringing your children. We have children as well, and we enjoy having them join us for the service.
