So what are we like?
Visiting any church for the very first time can make anyone a little nervous. Where do I go? What do I wear? What time do I show up? What’s here for my kids? What can I expect? These and many more questions can come to your mind. Well, we want to put you at ease. At Newcastle Fellowship Baptist Church, we worship with reverence for our Savior Jesus Christ in a way that is relevant to all ages. Here are a few answers to your questions about what you might expect on your first visit.
What are our services like?
We call our worship style "blended" because we blend traditional hymns with contemporary worship in a way that engages both young and old. The focus of all of our meetings is the Word of God. Generally, we will have prayer, several hymns & Choruses, a message from the Bible, an offering and announcements.
What are the Sunday service times?
Services start at 10:30 AM & 6:30 PM every Sunday and typically run between 70-80 minutes in length.
Do you have a nursery?
Yes. Nursery is provided during the morning service for children 3 years of age and under. There’s also a junior church on Sunday mornings. Find out more on the Children's page.
What should I wear?
There is not a dress code at NFBC for members or guests. Many in our church family dress in traditional “Sunday” dress; however, a specific attire is not required, and our members wear a variety of styles of clothing. We would ask that you dress in modest clothing to church so as to keep the focus on God and not us.
Do visitors have to stand up and say anything?
No, you sure don’t. We will give you a welcome package which contains a card you can fill out during the offering and ask you to drop it in the offering bag so we can have a record of your visit.
Am I expected to participate in the offering?
No. We don’t invite you to NFBC for your offering. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God’s Word, and a place where you can grow in God’s grace. Please don’t feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest.
If there’s something we missed on this list, just give us a call at (905) 987-5549, or ask someone when you arrive.
Whether you’re new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it’s been a long time since you’ve attended church at all, we hope your first visit at NFBC will be a great one! We are looking forward to meeting you personally.
