What happens during a meeting (service)?
Our church services begin every Sunday morning at 11am We arrive early for fellowship, great coffee and prayer from 10:15am. On the first Sunday of each month we also meet at 7pm. The remainder of the morning is spent praising and worshipping God, enjoying His presence with us by the Holy Spirit; as well as learning from, and being inspired by, the Scriptures as they are presented to us by our Senior Pastor, one of the leadership team or by an invited speaker.
What do you mean by 'praise and worship'?
Praise and worship is expressing our love and thanks to God. At times it can be quite loud and joyful, at other times it may be quieter and more reflective. Whatever stage you are at in your relationship with God, we invite you to join in with the worship. The music you will hear is fairly modern, but could include some hymns that you may recognise. We encourage people to sing along - words are projected onto a big screen to help you!
You have a 'main speaker'. What do they do?
They give a talk, also referred to as a sermon. The talks shared on a Sunday morning are relevant to life today and Bible based. We often discuss the Sunday messages during the week in our Life Groups.
What is 'breaking bread'?
We often break bread - others may call this the Lord's Supper, Communion or the Eucharist. We invite all believers to join us in remembering Jesus's death and resurrection, and in looking forward to His return!
Will I be asked to give money?
We usually take up our tithe and offering, but we do not expect visitors to join in unless they want to. For those who are committed members of All Nations Church we give a more regular amount - known as a tithe - as well as a love offering.
Do you have anything for children?
Yes! We organise a 'Sunday school’. This caters for children between 2-11 years. The school is supervised at all times by volunteers who have full police clearance (DBS) to work with children (this includes any future crèche workers).
Where do you meet?
We meet at our building - All Nations Church Centre, North Street, Keighley BD21 3AF. There is limited parking at the back of the building as well in the general vicinity of the centre. There is a large car park on Bank Street.
Please take care to hide all valuables (take them with you if possible) and make sure your car is secure. Although we do have stewards 'doing the rounds' we cannot accept any liability for property that is stolen or damaged while attending our meeting or other activities in All Nations Church Centre.
