What To Expect

When you visit the Bramalea Church of Christ, you will feel welcome from your very first visit. Here are some of the things that you will experience when you visit our worship time;

Prayers – There will be several prayers during our service (I Thessalonians 5:17)

Singing – There are hymn books in the pew racks of our building for your use. We do not use instruments to accompany our singing.  You may find this strange at first, however, it is our goal to follow the pattern of the New Testament.  Instruments are not mentioned but singing is. Our instruments are our voices. (Colossians 3:16, Hebrews 13:15)

The Lord’s Supper – Some thoughts will be presented with regard to Christ’s sacrifice for us.  Unleavened bread and small cups of grape juice are distributed throughout the congregation.  We remember Christ in this way every first day of the week.  While there are few references in the New Testament about how often Christians partook of the Lord’s Supper, biblical and historical writings tell us it was weekly. (Matthew 26: 26-30, Acts 20:7)

The Offering – Baskets will be passed to collect the weekly financial offering. (I Corinthians 16:1,2).  As our guest, you are not expected to make a donation, but Christians support the work of the Lord in this manner.  When the basket comes to you, just pass it on.

Preaching – A Bible-based sermon of about 20 or 30 minutes will be presented.  It is intended to encourage and to challenge.  We have no clergy; the preacher is simply God’s messenger. All Christians are a royal priesthood. (I Peter 2:5,9)

Invitation – At the conclusion of the preacher’s lesson an invitation will be extended. He will encourage those who wish to be baptized into Christ Jesus (Romans 6:3,4) or have special prayer requests to come to the front during the singing of a hymn.
