They are a free and non denominational church which has been running for over twenty years. They previously meet at the oasis Christian book shop on High street, now part of Use it computers.
Their aim is to see the Church grow in Rishton, and to see every person come to a knowledge of Jesus Christ. Their main ministry has been to children, although they have people of all ages in the church. They now have a team of youngsters called the Shekinah Glory Team holding regular evangelistic events. They welcome everyone to their meetings at the Baptist Church, Commercial Street.
Below are the details of their regular meetings. They are subject to change, however. It would be a good idea to phone to confirm details, particularly before making a long journey.
- Sundays: 11.30am Family Worship with crèche provided and children's ministry for those 11 years & under.
- 6.00-7.30pm 'Xtreme' for youth (11-16 years) wanting to know how to face today's challenges! Lively praise, worship and Bible study.
- Thursdays: 7.30pm Praise, Worship and Bible study.
- Fridays: 6.30-8.00pm Junior Club (3 to 16 yrs). Praise, worship and the Word of God presented with puppets, drama and craft session.
