For some people going anywhere for the first time can be a bit of a nerve-racking experience. To help avoid any worries here’s a quick summary of what you can expect at Ararat. First of all we aren’t super-spiritual beings, we all had a ‘first day’ at church, you’ll find we are a friendly bunch, if you don’t understand something please simply ask.
We start our meeting at 10.30am with a few minutes of notices keeping us informed of diary dates etc, then we spend a short time praising God. Our worship time consists of modern songs (with guitars, keyboards and drums). Everyone participates in the worship but at 11am the children and youth go to their own groups, we also run a creche for the little ones. We then have a talk from the bible that is relevant and meaningful to our modern lives.
We finish our meeting around midday, with tea and coffee. Our aim is that whether you are just looking into Christianity for the first time or have been a Christian for many years that you should be encouraged and inspired by the morning. We hope that everyone will draw closer to God.
