First time here

First time here

Welcome to Smithfield Baptist.

We want to help make your first experience at our Church a great one!

We seek to demonstrate God’s love in our welcome to all visitors, whether you’ve never been to church, you are looking for a new church family, or just passing through the area.

We would recommend a Sunday Service as an ideal way to find out what we are like.

Sunday Services

The Morning Service starts at 10:30 AM and the Evening Service starts at 5:00 PM – both run for around 90 minutes.

Some FAQs about Sundays

Our Morning worship service includes prayer, singing of songs, hymns and psalms together and we read the Bible before it is explained to us in a plain and simple manner.

The Evening service is much the same, except for the first Sunday of each month when it is devoted to prayers for those suffering and those in leadership at the congregational, area, country and world levels.

After our services we have a tea/refreshment break to enjoy each other’s company. We have a full lunch on the 2nd Sunday of the month. These are times we seek to know each other well and to embrace and include all who visit us.

All are welcome to attend. You may be just curious, you may be burdened and discouraged, you may be already attracted to Jesus and want to know more. Whatever your reason, you are welcome.

We share Communion during the Morning service on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. Those who love the Lord are invited to partake.

We want you to feel comfortable, so come as you are. Some people will be in suits or dresses, many ‘business casual’ or t-shirts and jeans/shorts and thongs depending on the weather.

Children who come to a service remain with their parents. We expect children to occassionally get upset, and if you feel uncomfortable about the situation you can take them into the foyer, outside the church or to a Baby Cry Room which is equipped with video and audio facilities to let you continue to enjoy the service.

There is also a Baby Feeding Room with a one-way glass viewing pane as well as video and audio facilities to let you continue to enjoy the service.

Bus and car are the main options possible.

The 813 Bus travels between Horsley Park via Wetherill Park to Fairfield Station – this runs past our Church. Frequency on Sunday mornings is every 30 mins, with a bus arriving at 10:30.

Typically parking isn’t a problem. The Church has its own car park at the rear, entered from O’Connell Street. Street parking on O’Connell Street is also available.

What does it mean to be a part of our Church ?

Christ-Centred Worship

We have all been made to worship God alone and to enjoy Him forever. We therefore spend time praising Him and learning from Him in songs (both old and new), seeking Him in prayer and in listening to His word (the Bible) explained and applied in a relevant way for people seeking to follow Jesus in the 21st century.

Bible-Based Teaching

Teaching from God’s word is a central feature of our church, and our aim is for the Bible to be explained and applied in a relevant way for people seeking to follow Jesus in the 21st century.

A Loving Community

Our Church provides an opportunity to develop real relationships with real people. We believe support should always be seen in both what we say and what we do.

Serving as Christians Together

We have plenty of opportunities to serve at our church. We encourage everyone at our church to use their gifts and talents to advance God’s kingdom, for his glory!
