Weekly Meetings

All our meetings are currently being held online via Zoom..

Our main meeting is held every Sunday at 10.30am.  This begins with a lively time of praise and worship.  Each week we share bread and wine together to remember Jesus’ death and resurrection, as He commanded. There is usually opportunity for different members to participate and share testimonies.  Time is always set aside for preaching and teaching from the Bible.  We finish about 12 o'clock but then encourage everyone to stay for chat.  When real-life meetings resume we look forward to restarting our popular Sunday School for children of all ages.

We meet for prayer at 2.30pm each Tuesday.  Prayer works!  We have seen some amazing answers to the things we have asked God for.   If you would like prayer for a particular need please ask!

On Thursday evenings we have a short in-depth Bible Study with a smaller informal group working interactively.

Social Activities

During the past year it has been difficult for us to meet in person.  Before this we have always arranged some sort of social activity at least once a month, such as a country walk or a shared meal.  Some years we have organised a weekend break when the whole church has been away together, and for three consecutive years we have borrowed a bus from Salisbury Reds for a day trip to Swanage.

Baptismal Services

It's always a great thrill to see someone respond to the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ.  We believe that baptism is for those old enough to have made that decision for themselves.  And it is by full immersion! - representing death to the old life and coming up to begin a wonderful new life following Jesus.

Outreach

We are keen to share our faith in Christ both in word and in action.  Before the limitations imposed by the pandemic we have been involved in running social activities, distributing literature and meeting people on the streets and in their homes.  Sometimes we have done this in co-operation with other churches.  For several years we have run the popular Alpha Course, providing an introduction to the Christian faith.

Much of our outreach activity is concentrated on the Friary council estate in Salisbury, where we have run regular clubs for children and young people, as well as one-off events for everyone.  We have distributed a quarterly newsletter to each home, and we make sure everyone gets a Christmas card.

In addition we actively support a number of local Christian-based initiatives, as well as missions activity abroad.

Friary Youth Club

For the time being the club has been forced to close.  Normally it meets from 7pm to 8.30pm on Mondays during term time at the Friary Community Hall and is for all young people aged 10 upwards. We are committed to providing a safe environment with activities and ongoing support for young people on the Friary.

Every week there are Wii games, Pool, Table Tennis, Football Table and free refreshments. Often we also have another special activity such as craft work or cooking, with practical instruction from visiting experts.  One project was to paint murals on the walls of a subway.

At least once a term there is an outing arranged, such as to a theme park, to the beach or to an ice rink. Each summer we now spend a whole weekend away at Pulse Camp, a brilliant Christian-based camp for teenagers.

Scott, Janey and Julie are our regular youth workers, all of whom are DBS checked.
