Exploring Baptism

We believe in and practise full-immersion, water baptism. We do this, following Jesus’ example and as an act of obedience to Him. 

If you would like to be baptised, we're running an Exploring Baptism session on Sun 3rd March, 11am, during the Sunday morning service, in preparation for baptisms on Sun 31st March

This gives everyone an opportunity to ask questions, be encouraged and understand more about baptism.

Discovering Kingdom Culture

Our next 3 week course begins on Thur 14th March, 7:30pm at The Runway. 
Please sign up here and join us on this essential step of belonging at GodFirst. 
We will explore what is meant by ‘The Kingdom of God’, what Kingdom Culture looks like and what it means to be a citizen of Heaven; expressing Heaven on earth, just as Jesus did, so we can transform the world.
