Fellowship at
Selsdon Baptist

Different groups within the life of the church and how we minister to them.

Homegroups


  • A Homegroup, as a small group of people, is a place for fellowship where you can get to know a small number of others really well. In the security and confidence of those people you know, you may feel able to share something of your own situation with others who will be supportive.


  • A Homegroup is one of the best places to understand the Bible, and discover how to put it into practice in a life of following Jesus. In Homegroups you can ask questions, listen to the understanding and experience of others, and work together to see what the Bible means and how to live it out.


  • A Homegroup is a good place to experience prayer with other Christians. If you find it hard to pray with others, a Homegroup is a good place to start, and if you enjoy praying with others, you'll have plenty of opportunity in your Homegroup.


  • A Homegroup is a place where you can show care and concern for people in need. No-one can help everyone in need, but in one homegroup we can show love and care for those in our group.


  • A Homegroup is an inclusive group, with a place for everyone. Some people prefer mainly to listen and do not want to talk very much - they are welcome at Homegroups. Others have burning questions to ask and things they want to share, and the Homegroup may be the best place to bring these things.


  • A Homegroup will sometimes decide that there are things they can do together. These include social activities, outings, parties, leading worship, evangelistic initiatives and serving in some way in the life of the church.


  • A Homegroup is not the whole church, but a part of the church, and in Homegroups we can share in the issues that affect the life and witness of the church and understand what makes the church 'tick'. In Homegroups we can share both the social and the humorous, as well as the serious and spiritual sides of life.


There are about 16 homegroups, mostly evenings, but some day-times, and some catering for families with children. If you would like to join a group please contact  the church office who will do their best to match you to a suitable group.

Prayer

is central to the life of a Christian

Prayer on Sunday
Each Sunday worship service contains some elements of prayer within it. We have prayers of praise and worship, reflective prayers, time for open prayer, meditation prayer, silence for prayer, prayer of confession, intercessory prayers, pastoral prayers, healing prayer, personal prayer, liturgical prayer .... and lots of other prayers too.
Monthly Prayer Meeting
Every 1st Saturday at 8 00 am at ehe church we have a "Praying Together" session where specic needs and activities in the life of the church can be brought before God
Prayer Chain
We operate a prayer chain which mobilises a number of people to pray should a situation or emergency arise that needs covering in prayer. All that has to be done is to phone the prayer chain leader (the office will pass on your request) and this request will be phoned through to a number of people who will pray with you about the request you have made.
Prayer Team
At the end of morning service 3 or 4 members of the prayer team are available in the lobby at the back of the church to pray with you confidentially on any issues that are concerning you. Just look for their lapel badges!


Seniors Ministry

aimed at seniors

Selsdon Baptist Church has a number of activities aimed at the more ‘senior’ citizen.

Each month we have the “Four O’clock Service” on the afternoon of the second Sunday in each month, when our normal 6 30 pm evening service is brought forward, and we have a more traditional service followed by afternoon tea, with excellent cakes and sandwiches. Check the What’s On page for service details.

Our annual “Holiday @ Home” week in the summer is a week full of activities aimed at older people, where the church is decorated according to a holiday theme

T @ 3 is a monthly social gathering which does what it says on the tin!

Thursday Morning Group meets between 10 00 and 12 00 on Thursday mornings in the church coffee lounge. A variety of activities such as quizzes, speakers, play reading etc. Check the Diary for the next meeting, and the programme is posted each quarter on the blog page


Mens Ministry

 

We seek to provide a men’s ministry in a variety of ways.

Occasional events such as the Men’s Bigger Breakfast and the Balti Night combine the attraction of excellent food with speakers covering ‘masculine’ topics.

We have had excellent breakfast talks from the chaplain of Crystal Palace Football Club, Chris Roe, and Martin Seymour, a part time cabbie, part time Baptist Minister.

We also have had eveinings watching the Rugby or Football.

Other events such as the charity cricket match and barbecues are excellent man-friendly activities.
Keep an eye out for events as they come up!.

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders, and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith."

"You make my feet run as fast as those of a deer, and you help me stand on the mountainsPsalm 18:33
