Every Sunday we meet as a church family to worship God, learn from His Word, enjoy fellowship together, and pray for the needs of our community and world. You would be welcome to come and join with us. Tea and coffee is served between our morning services.
Our services take place on the Mill Hill in Waringstown. Parking is at the rear of the church building and someone will be there to give you a warm welcome as you enter our church building. People of all ages are welcome to worship with us in Waringstown Presbyterian Church. If you have very young children you can, if you wish, make use of The Forum, an adjoining room where the service is relayed by video link. Crèche facilities are available at our morning services. (9.30am & 11.30am). We also have an evening service at 6.30pm. Worship services last a maximum of 70 minutes.
Learning from God’s Word is a big part of our worship time. Below are the details of our 2013 autumn preaching programme with a focus on Malachi in the morning and the book of James in the evening.
Malachi - A half-hearted people and a whole-hearted God
The last book of the Old Testament introduces us to a people whose heart is no longer in it when it comes to their relationship with God. But all the way through the book there are reminders of the way in which the Lord has loved the special people he has chosen. Malachi challenges us to be whole-hearted in our love for God who first loved us.
James - A Faith that Works
James argues that trusting in Jesus Christ will lead to a changed life, and real faith in the Lord Jesus is lived out day by day. This is a book that gives practical, no-nonsense teaching on how we can put our faith into practice.
Looking back into the archives, during 2011-12 we spent time discovering more about Jesus by looking at his 'I am's' in John's Gospel, and we learnt big lessons about grace as we read and thought about Hosea & Jonah together. We also had a series on Paul's letter to the Ephesians in the evening, and studied the exciting story of the early church in Acts at morning worship, and looking at the life of Joseph on Sunday evenings (see below).
Acts - God at Work
We are currently looking at the book of Acts at our Sunday morning services, a book that tells the exciting story of the church of the first believers in Christ. It tells us about how God helps his church through the Holy Spirit that the Lord Jesus promised his followers, and reminds us of the job the church has been given to tell others about Jesus. It is a great encouragement to read about God at work in the lives of ordinary people.
Our series is ending with:
23rd September - Acts 9:1-22 A God who changes hearts
30th September - Acts 10:25-33 A God who speaks today
7th October - Acts 12:1-24 A God who gets involved
14th October - Acts 16:6-15 A God who guides
Joseph - A Life Less Ordinary
In Genesis we read the story of Joseph, the guy who walked around in a coat of many colours. To say he had an eventful life would be an understatement! But this story is much more than just a family drama. It's a story that helps us to see how God uses circumstances, both good and bad, to bring about His plans, and we get to see how Joseph plays a big part in the greatest story of all - the good news of how God saves His people.
