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!)
Our pastors preach from the Bible. This means we open up the Bible before every talk, hear it read, and then hear the pastor explain it and apply it. We usually work through books of the Bible, looking at a small section week by week, but we sometimes hear about what the Bible says about particular topics. Every so often we have a guest preacher who might give a talk outside of our regular preaching series.
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 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 send you a text if your child does not settle), 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.
