Hello and welcome

Welcome to  Moira Baptist Church online. We are a church that is welcoming to all and your first contact will be a warm smile and handshake at our door. At Moira Baptist we are passionate about Jesus Christ, knowing Him, following Him, and serving Him in the village and community of Moira. We seek to be a church where believers can grow together in their faith, caring for one another as a family, and encouraging one another to keep trusting in the good news of Jesus Christ. And we’ll be honest, it’s that good news we want to tell you about. As well as being a place believers can grow, we also want to be a place where those who haven’t yet trusted in Jesus, can be exposed to His Word and challenged to follow Him.

Answers to some questions

What are your services like?
Each time we meet we read from God’s Word, sing songs of praise while our worship team lead us, take time to pray and then the majority of our time is spent listening to the Bible being taught. Most Sundays the morning service concludes with the Lord’s Table or communion, a time when believers remember the Lord by eating bread and drinking wine together in the way the Saviour appointed. Those who are not believers are welcome to observe but not participate or to leave in the short break before the communion service begins. Evening services are less formal with singing, testimonies, Scripture and teaching and sometimes we also meet around the Lord’s Table.
How should I dress?
We seek to create an environment where families and individuals can feel at ease coming into this church. Some of our people come to church dressed in their suits and others come in more casual attire; however you come you will be given a warm and friendly welcome.
What about my children?

On Sunday mornings we provide facilities for young families from a fully staffed crèche for 0-3 year olds to Wonder Kidz for 4-7 year olds. Wonder Kids have a part in the service twice a month and on other Sundays leave before the sermon for their own time in one of our rooms,
