Visiting a church for the first time can be a nerve-racking experience.
Here’s a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help make a visit to Bethesda Frankel Estate Church that little bit easier.
Frequently Asked Questions
We have several services on Sunday morning, a traditional English service at 8am, a Chinese service at 9.30am, a contemporary English service at 10am, and a youth service at 12 noon. Sunday schools for children ages 3 to 12 are at 10am.
We suggest arriving a bit earlier to find a parking space around the estate and walk to our building.
It’s hard to give an exact time, as our song and talk lengths can vary from week to week, but our services generally last around 90 minutes, however we’d love you to stick around longer for breakfast or lunch after the service so we can get to know you (and so you can get to know us!)
As a Brethren assembly, we hold that the Bible is the first and foremost authority in matters of faith and practice. Our sermon topics draw from the Bible and cover all aspects of Christian life, and is taught by our Elders, Deacons, and various guest speakers.
You may have a look at our past sermons on our sermons page to get a sense of what is being preached from our pulpit.
Absolutely! We have many families attending BFEC. Each Sunday morning, Kindergarten Sunday School (on 3rd floor) and Junior Sunday School (on 2nd floor) opens from 10:00am and runs for the duration of our “adult” service. Unsure where to take your children when you arrive? Just look for our greeters – they’ll be able to point you in the right direction!
We also run a supervised crèche for children under two years old. There are volunteers looking after the crèche each morning. You are welcome to leave your child with them (they’ll call for you if your child needs your attention), but you are also free to stay with your child in crèche.
Our Youth Service for teenagers, called “Grow@Noon”, begins at 11:45am with lunch in the tarpaulin. At 12:15pm, they will proceed into the main hall for their worship service followed by bible lessons and fellowship. They will usually end around 2pm to 2.30pm.
