Our Church is busy most days of the week. In addition to our Sunday services we have bi-weekly prayer meetings, fellowship groups and a wide range of other activities for people of all ages.
Click the tabs below for more details.
We meet together to worship each Sunday morning at 11am.
During the service we run numerous groups for younger people, including:
- Crèche – for children under 4
- Kids @ ABC – for children 4+ and Primary School pupils
- Bible Class – for Secondary School pupils
We celebrate Communion after every morning service, except for the last Sunday of each month when it takes place in the evening.
Our evening services are held at 6.30pm.
On months with five weeks, the last Sunday evening service is organised by our young adults.
This service takes place 12.30pm – 1pm every two weeks and offers a great opportunity to take time out during the week and focus on God’s Word.
Every other service is followed by a light lunch.
We meet every second Wednesday at 7.30pm in the small hall for prayer. We begin with a short message and normally meet for about an hour.
Small groups meet together to study and pray every other week. They work through Bible Study booklets on specific topics. These groups are a good opportunity to get to know people better and encourage each other in our walk with God.
Airdrie Baptist Church’s Sunday school, Kids @ ABC, takes place during the Sunday morning service. The children sit at the front of the church and head through to the hall after the children’s message.
We begin with prayer time and a few games before sitting down to hear the message prepared by one of our leaders. The message is followed by a craft and some more games or music.
There are trips at the start of each session and just before Christmas. We are involved in special church services at Christmas and Easter where the children prepare a small performance for the congregation.
Kids @ ABC coincides with the dates and holidays of the local schools, starting late August and finishing late June for the school holidays. A Children’s Holiday Club usually runs for the first week of the summer holidays and is followed by Summer Sunday School for the remainder of the break.
Young people from S1 -S6 are welcome to join us in Bible Class which runs every Sunday during the morning service. The group seeks to help young people engage with the Bible and help them recognise and understand the relevance that God’s word has for their lives in the world today.
We as leaders want to equip young people to not just know the answers to questions about what they believe, but to know why they believe it.
In addition, we aim to provide a safe place for young people to have fun and develop a deeper relationship with other young Christians.
Mondays and Tuesdays, 10am
There are different topics each week, including painting and music. Everyone is welcome; Mums, Dads, Grandparents and Carers.
It runs to the same term time as the local schools.
At the end of the term the children all receive a Christian book.

This group meets faithfully every Wednesday morning. It has been a part of the church life for many years and the ladies have seen many answers to prayer.
This group is open to children of Primary School age. They are split into groups according to their age. They work through a series of books and have to learn Bible verses from their handbooks. They also sing songs and play games.
When the children are able to recite their learned bible verses to a ‘listener’, they receive a ‘share’. The children save these up over the year and can redeem them at the ‘End of the Year’ share party. They can buy all sorts of things – toys, pads, pens and books.
There is a story telling time and people are invited along to speak to the children.

The Youth Fellowship is for young people in S1 upwards. We enjoy playing games like table tennis, we have a tuckshop and sometimes make crafts, cards and cakes! We also have a time each night to learn more about Christianity.
