What To Expect


We meet at 11:00 AM every Sunday morning for our main time together as a whole church family. Your probably best showing up around 10:55 so you can get a seat before we start.



Expect to meet a group of normal people from a variety of different backgrounds who are at a variety of different life stages (from babies to folk in their 90’s). We don’t have a dress code so just come in whatever you feel comfortable in. Before church someone will probably greet you at the door and take you through to where we sit then the service will start at 11.00.



During the service we’ll do a few things. The big things you’ll see us do is read and study the bible, throughout the service we’ll read a few bits of the bible and then around halfway through the service we will spend 25-35 hearing a part of the bible explained (we call that the sermon) . We read and hear the bible explained because we believ it is Gods word, and that through it God speaks the truth we need to hear.

We will sing because we believe God deserves our praise and one way we can worship Him is in song. We tend to sing a mix of new and old songs and hymns and those who are able stand to sing.

We will pray to God because we believe we need His help and that he hears and answers prayer.

SOME service will also include the baptism of those who have come to follow Jesus and in our first Sunday of the month we take communion together to help us remember all Jesus has done.



The service tends to finish around 12:15 and then Tea/Coffee/Juice and biscuits are served in the church so that we can continue to chat together, this is very relaxed and informal and a great chance to get more connected to the people who make up Hawick Baptist Church.



In the Church there is a creche room with a variety of different toys, games and activities for younger children, toddlers and babies. Feel free to make use of this at any point during Sundays time together.

When its required and when possible, we also do Sunday school bible lessons for older children up to the start of high school. This takes place during the second half of our service.

For High Schoolers there is a breakfast and games at 10 at The Well before coming across to Church. To find out what’s on for youth during the week click here
