New to Church? What should you expect?

Covid 19: please see the home page for current arrangements for meetings while covid is still prevalent.

We want you to feel very welcome and at ease when you visit Bishopdown Evangelical Church. However, for those who are not quite sure of what to expect, here's a little guidance...

How to find us
We are located in the centre of the Bishopdown estate in Salisbury, have a look at our Location for more details. Feel free to park in the car park at the back of the church. If you would like to speak to someone about anything before you come, please see the contact link on our Home page.

When should you arrive?
The morning service starts at 10:30am. If you arrive about 5-10 minutes early you will be met at the door, and there will always be someone to help you find your way around.

What do I wear?
Whatever you feel comfortable in; you'll find us in anything from jeans and t-shirt to shirt and tie.

What happens in a service?
As Christians we meet together to worship God, to pray to Him, and to read and learn from his Word. So we will sing hymns and praises to Him, pray together, read from the Bible and we will hear a sermon (you can listen to them through the Sermons link if you would like). We don't take a collection during the service but have a collection box for anyone who wants to give to support the work of the church, but there is no obligation. On the 3rd Sunday of the month we celebrate the Lord's Supper together.

And afterwards?
At the end of the morning service we serve tea, coffee or squash and biscuits, so please feel free to stay and enjoy the refreshments. By this point someone (probably more than one!) will have introduced themselves to you and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

There are occasional Sunday evening meetings which are smaller. We will watch a sermon talk from places like Word Alive or the Keswick Convention, or work through a course.
