Family Church

On Sunday mornings we welcome families to join with us in our morning worship service. We believe in supporting the whole family on their journey of faith. While the adults learn in church, we have groups to welcome all ages of children and young people.

We are aiming to develop a strong Christian family within Abingdon Baptist Church which is meaningful, exciting, and an integral part of the church so we can reach out to our surrounding community.

For more details on the different groups, see the other pages in this section.
