During our Saturday Service
If you have never visited our church and are looking to join us for a service, we hope that the following information will help. We know that visiting a church for the first time, especially if you are new to Jordan can be challenging, so please feel free to get in touch with us and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Creche – Nursery
During our Saturday service, we have a creche, or nursery, for younger children. At least two creche attendants are on-hand at all times to play with and take care of younger children while parents are attending corporate worship.
The children start each Saturday service with their family as part of corporate worship. During the service they are dismissed to Kid’s church, where they can explore the bible together and learn from their teachers.
On the first Saturday of each month we share a meal together after the service. This is a time to fellowship together, get to know each other better, and reflect on the service while enjoying each other’s company.
What is Our Service Like?
We Value Liturgy – While our congregation is comprised of individuals from a wide variety of church backgrounds and traditions, we follow an Anglican liturgy in our weekly worship services. We recite scripture together as a congregation, and affirm together the ancient creeds of the church.
And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.Acts 2:42
We Sing Together – We sing together each Saturday, drawing on both traditional hymns and contemporary classics to worship the Lord and exalt His name.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.Colossians 3:16
We Pray Together – Each week we set aside time in our service to pray together as a congregation. We pray together corporately in the service, and also have people in our congregation available to pray with individuals after the service.
For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.Matthew 18:20
We read scripture together – Each week we take time to read passages from the Bible aloud, to reflect on God’s word and learn ever more about Him. We listen to God’s perfect word, seeking to apply it to our lives and grow in our walk with Christ.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,2 Timothy 3:16
We celebrate communion together – On the second and fourth Saturday of the month we share the Lord’s Supper. We are open to all believers sharing with us no matter what their church tradition is. The celebration of all that God has done for us in the Lord Jesus reminds us of our unity as the body of Christ and is a symbol of what brings us together.
Because there is one loaf, we who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.1 Corinthians 10:17
