PBC … on Sundays
Every Sunday we meet together to worship God at 10:30 am and 6:30 pm. During the services there will be one or two Bible readings, times of prayer, an offering, a sermon and a number of songs. Our singing will include both traditional hymns and contemporary songs so that we may benefit from the wealth of the old and the best of the new.
During the morning service a crche for babies and the very young, is in the hall. Also, during the second part of the service there is Followers for children for those in school years R to 7.
Before the evening service (from 6:20 pm) one of our members usually chooses a number of songs
Audio recordings of our services are made and these are available on CD or online at www.pantilesbaptist.org.uk.
Please stay after the services for a time of fellowship over a cup of tea or coffee in the church hall
