The Sunday morning service at Taupo Baptist is from 10am and is for all ages. Everyone is welcome to come along and join in the worship. If you have children, of course they are welcome too. People often worry that the children will make noise and be disruptive but don’t worry, we all can make lots of noise and be disruptive at times too! Just come along and join in. Your child might have questions or may need some help with worship, please feel supported in your ministry to your children, we want to help you raise your child within a strong, supportive, faith-filled community.
It can seem a little daunting to go to a church service if you haven’t been to a particular church before. The most important thing to remember when you come to Taupo Baptist is to relax and not worry about what we do, just make yourself at home.
‘The Base’ is a children’s programme that is run during the sermon part of the main service.
The programme consists of a short message, reflection and prayer, followed by activities and toys for the children to play with. You are welcome to join us too if you’d like. All ages of children are welcome for this programme (including babies, preschoolers, kindy kids, children with special needs and school-aged children).
During the school holidays the children’s programme will not be running, instead please be encouraged to keep your children in the service, they are very welcome. There are some occasions that the children will stay in the main service, for example— baptisms, communion and testimonies.
