6. Inside a Baptist ChurchThe Auditorium• Worship is led from a platform on the far side of the auditorium, and seating upstairs and down is arranged around this so that you can see what is happening. There are no reserved places, so sit where you feel comfortable!• To the left of the platform is a piano, which someone will generally be playing as people are coming into the church. There may be a number of other musicians, from violinists to electric bass guitarist, to accompany them. On the right hand side of the balcony, there is an organ and also audio/video equipment to record the service and to relay it to those in the Concourse Area. The boards of the platform can be lifted off to uncover a pool which is used for baptisms. On the platform itself, there is a lectern. The person who is leading the service will welcome everyone from here to start the service.
7. Inside a Baptist Church - services• Services are a mixture of music, prayer, readings from the Bible and preaching / teaching.• Services usually involve quite a lot of singing, of both traditional hymns and more modern songs. The words are provided in books on the back of the seat in front of you or on an overhead projector screen above the platform. Dont worry - there are enough people for you to be able to either bellow or not sing at all without standing out!• Each service will tend to follow a particular theme. The first part of the service includes readings, prayers, interviews and singing. It lasts about 45 minutes. We then take a couple of minutes break and get a chance to chat to those around us. During the break, most of the children go off to Sunday School classes in the meeting rooms behind the auditorium. Before the service resumes, there is a time for notices.• The second half of the service focuses on teaching. The preacher will generally read through a passage from the Bible and explore its relevance to our lives today. This again lasts about 45 minutes. The service concludes with a song or hymn and a blessing.• At some services there will be special events, such as the dedication of new babies, baptisms or sharing of bread and wine in Holy Communion. All will be explained as we go along!
