What Can I Expect If I Turn Up on a Sunday?

We know it can be daunting to attend a church for the first time so we want to give you an idea of what to expect when you attend one of our church services.

Where is the Church? 

The church is on the corner of Jessie and Rusden Streets in Armidale. A map to find the church is found on our Contact page.

When Should I Arrive? 

Church Services are on Sunday.

9:30am - Morning Service: This service has a family focus and we run a Sunday School for Kids during the service.

 6:00pm - Evening Service: This is a very contemporary, celebration service with a focus on Youth and the young at heart! Sunday's Kool our afternoon Kids Club runs at the same time as the service. 

Where Can I Park? 

Off street parking is available on the church grounds. Extra parking is in Jessie Street on the grassed area behind the church hall.

What Should I Wear?

Come as you are! While you might tend to worry about what to wear to church, you will fit in just fine whether you come in jeans and a t-shirt or a suit and tie. Most people tend to wear good casual wear in the morning and jeans at night. But we don't really care! What is in our hearts is more important that what is on our body!

What Kinds of People Are There?

On a typical Sunday, you'll see all kinds of people - young children, teenagers, families, over 50's and senior adults hanging out with life long friends. Armidale District Baptist is a multi-generational community of faith with people from all walks of life.

What is There for My Kids?

We believe that Jesus loves kids and so do we! Kids are a precious gift and a special part of our church family. That's why we provide a quality, energetic, fun program for them.

Sunday School runs during our 9:30am Morning Service. Experienced teachers lead the children in a fun and engaging morning that ends just as the service ends. 

It's fine with us if you would rather keep your children with you in the Morning Service.

Sunday's Kool is a unique kids afternoon starting at 5pm and finishing just before the Sunday Evening Service. Sunday's Kool is a high energy program that kids enjoy. Dinner is also provided for the children. Transport can be arranged for the children. For more information about Sunday's Cool please call Mrs. Kerry Gailer on 6772 3562. 

Kid's Corner Nursery: At the rear of the church we have a special area for young pre-school children. Here you can supervise your child while still being able to hear and see the service on TV. This semi-sound proofed area can provide you with some peace of mind if you are concerned that your child is being quite normal at a higher volume than you want. We enjoy having children in the church and would rather have some "kid noises" than have them absent from the church. So relax. 

The Big "T" Question

The toilets are in the hall and can easily be found. They are modern. A change table for babies is also available.

What Will Happen at the End of the Service?

At the end of the service you will not be trapped, asked to sign anything or forced to commit to a return visit! We would love you to become part of our church family but we want you to have the freedom to decide whether we are God's people for you to join. 

At the end of the service we invite you to join us for a chat over morning tea in the hall. Pastor Andrew is also available for a chat during that time.

Come and worship God with integrity and freedom in a church that has a clear Jesus focus and where the Bible is proclaimed with clarity, accuracy and passion.
