Welcome to Lurgan Baptist Church

A New Normal

We are pleased to welcome you back to the building for worship. You would be very welcome to join us.

There is plenty of seating available to keep everyone at a safe distance as we meet to learn from God's Word.

We ask that you'll take note of the following guidelines, which will be in place during our services for the foreseeable future.

Arrive in good time and sit apart

The deacons need time to usher everyone to a seat at an appropriate distance.

To help them do this, please arrive in good time for the services.

Stay at home if you're unwell

We will broadcast our services online, and distribute CD/DVD recordings as normal.

If you're unwell, or generally concerned for your health, you can still watch the services from home.

Wash your hands

The church will be well cleaned before each service.

Hand sanitiser will also be available at various points in the building. Please make use of these.




The Lord's Table

We will be holding a time around the table in the building.

To avoid any one person sitting in different places during the service, the deacons will also serve the annexe. Please refrain from moving seats.

Children's ministries update

Unless there are changes to the current government guidance, we are looking forward to welcoming the children back for Sunday School, Good News Club, JYC, and BYF beginning October.

If your children are attending one of these groups, you will receive a letter from the church by post.

This will detail the measures that have been put in place to ensure that each child is kept appropriately socially distanced, can have fun, and learn lots from God's Word.

You are welcome to join us for corporate prayer each Thursday at 8pm in the main church building.

Thank you to everyone who continued to pray with us online while the building was closed.

Returning to normal

As church life gets back to normal, we ask that you continue to support and look out for the many in our fellowship who are still at high risk and are unable to make it to the meetings.

We will continue to broadcast online and distribute CD/DVDs of each church service to those who are still unable to join us in-person.

Let's help each other

Isolation can be a lonely and potentially frightening time for many in our fellowship, particularly the elderly.

If you have a copy of the church directory, we would encourage you to pick up the phone and call everyone on your page from time to time.

Ask them how they are doing, if you can help them in any way, and encourage them in whatever way you can.

We'd also remind you to pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ at this time, that they would know God's comfort and blessing in this difficult time.

"In God have I put my trust"

Psalm 56 v11

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 41:10
