Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear to come to church?

We are quite relaxed about the clothing we wear and there is always a good variety.  For some, the tradition of “Sunday Best”, for others it’s jeans and a casual shirt.   We don’t insist on men wearing ties, or ladies wearing hats.  God looks at the heart, not at the clothing.  

What happens in a typical service?

Our morning services are quite traditional with a mix of hymns and worship songs.  Our music is provided by an electronic organ, piano or guitar and flute.   During the service, we will sing, pray, share a bible reading and listen while the speaker gives his or her thoughts on the bible reading.  Communion is included in one morning service and one evening service a month.   During the morning service, we share in a time of celebration and family news.  During this time, anyone who has a birthday, anniversary or something to celebrate is offered a chocolate.  

There is always an opportunity to talk over a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit in the school room after the morning service.

Our evening services are usually traditional and can be more reflective.  There are no refreshments served after the evening service.  

Does the church have disabled access?

The church building offers a good level of access to disabled people including those using a wheelchair.    Disabled access to toilet facilities is available.

Does the church have disabled parking?

We do not currently have a designated disabled parking area, however there is limited parking immediately outside the church.   

Does the church have a Sunday School?

Yes we do have a Sunday School and can cater for most age-groups, we also have a creche facility for the very young

The first Sunday of each month is usually a family service and the children and young people share in the main service rather than going into Sunday school. 

Please see our pages on our youth work for more details. 

Can I get married at Foulsham Baptist Church?

Our church is licensed for weddings.    If you are considering marriage and would like to talk about holding your wedding at the chapel, our minister would be happy to talk to you about this.

Can my child be christened at Foulsham Baptist Church? 

We can offer a service of dedication rather than christening.   This offers parents and families the opportunity to thank God for the gift of a child and to dedicate the child to His loving care.  We do not christen children as we believe that the decision to baptise with water is taken by the individual when he or she comes to faith in Christ Jesus.

I want to know more about Baptism?

As a Baptist church, we encourage those who have come to faith in Jesus Christ to testify to their faith through the act of believer’s baptism by full immersion.  The church has a baptistry and our minister or deacons would be happy to talk with you about baptism if you feel that the Lord is leading you to consider this act of personal witness.
