You may be wondering what the services and meetings at Cromwell Hall Christian Fellowship are like. Below is a short description of each them.
This is a solemn communion and worship service, lasting about 75 minutes, for people whose lives are committed to Jesus Christ, as He requested, "This do in remembrance of Me." (Luke 22:19) This meeting is led by God's Holy Spirit, meaning there is no or pre-set order of service or anyone appointed to conduct it.
This service lasts about 45 minutes. We commence by singing a few hymns and choruses, often interspersed with an quiz for the children, before listening to a talk lasting about 15-20 minutes about why God sent the Jesus Christ down to earth to die on the Cross for each one of us. More information can be found here.
We, as Christians, believe God still hears and answers prayer today. On many occasions we have experienced God many different answers to prayer. We thank God for what He has done for us as well as asking him for various needs. We pray for about 30 minutes before we commence the Bible Study.
We study God's Word, the Bible, discussing and exploring the truth found in it to gain a deeper understanding of our Christian faith, for about 45 minutes.
Different churches have different practices! So you will know what to expect when you come, we list some practices that you will see at the Cromwell Hall Christian Fellowship that you may not encounter at other churches. We believe that the Bible, particularly 1 Corinthians chapters 11-14, teaches what should be practiced in a local church.
We follow the New Testament teaching of the Priesthood of all Believers. Therefore, we do not have an ordained person to act as a minister or pastor.
We follow the practice that only men speak audibly during the main church services. This is because the Bibles teaches that God has given different roles for men and women when the church meets together, and not that women are less important or they do not have the abilibity. Women, while remaining silent during the services, except for singing, contribute just as equally as the men in the worship to God.
We also follow the practice that the women also cover their heads when we meet, as a personal act of submission to God's Divine order, authority and headship.
