There are many ministries that make up the life and works of Seaford Baptist Church. We have therefore put together a sample of the work that takes place below. Have a scroll through to see if there is anything you'd like to get involved in, then get in touch through the Church Office. Alternatively, download the Annual Report as this contains full details of everything that happens.
Care Groups carry on the work of encouragement within the fellowship, and whether it is in the area of Bible study, prayer, or just plain socialising over a good meal, their regular work develops the sort of trust that enables the church to grow.
Around forty men and women meet on Tuesday afternoons for an hour of fellowship, worship, prayer, and a message from a range of excellent speakers.
Tuesday Lunch Club
Chinwags is where our senior ladies and gentlemen meet for fellowship over a tasty lunch provided by teams of volunteers on alternate Tuesdays.
Working with card, paper, candles, boxes, and all manner of crafty things! Come and join us on the third Monday of each month and have a go! A variety of crafts have been tried, but do come along and show us some new ones.
Maturity Matters is a seven week course, run by the church, looking at the process of spiritual maturity. Becoming more like Christ, and growing in the love and knowledge of God, is the goal of our faith and the theme of the course. After a meal together, through teaching, discussion, study, and self-evaluation of our spiritual health, we encourage each other to journey on in Christ, with Christ, and towards Christ. The course is very practical, and yet challenging, as we look at some basics for growth, such as how to study the Bible, the importance of prayer, the need for fellowship, and our giving to God.
Over a period of eight weeks, the aim is to discover our identity, our giftings, our callings, and how these can be used in our lives, both inside and outside of the church. Learning about the gifts of the Spirit, and how and where God wants us to use them.
It is for anyone who wants to find out more about the basics of the Christian faith and its relevance today. It has been especially helpful for people wanting to investigate Christianity, new Christians, those attending Church who feel that there is more to the Christian life than they have experienced, and those who want to brush up on the basics. We hope to run another course in the Spring of 2011.
