About Our Services
Sunday Services Booking
We're now holding in person Sunday services once more!
Having started on Sunday 13th September, there are now going to be 3 services each week to choose from : 9:30am, 11:00am and 6pm.
We are thrilled at the prospect of seeing the children of SBC again, and have been working hard to try and come up with the best way of doing this. At present, the creche will remain in the McCallum room on the middle floor of the church building, but all other children, age 3 up to primary 6, will be in the Family Life Centre. They will be split into 2 age groups, similar to how things normally run during the summer holidays and we will do a teaching session and have some fun and games! Face masks must be worn by all children over 5 in a place of worship, as per the government guidance. All efforts have been made to ensure the area and practices are Covid secure. When bringing your children into the Taylor Room we ask that you maintain physical distancing and wear a mask unless you are exempt.
To keep everyone as safe as we can, the numbers at all services are currently limited to 40 in the congregation, with hand sanitising stations and physical distancing in place. There will be stewards in place to guide people to and from the sanctuary, and a one-way system will be in place. Please also wear a face covering.
DO NOT attend if you or anyone in your household have any symptoms of Covid-19. These symptoms include:
- - a high temperature
- - a new and continuous cough
- - a change or loss in taste or smell
Please bear in mind there will be no tea or coffee after the service, no congregational singing is permitted, and staying in the church building after the service is finished to chat will not be possible.
Be aware that the 9:30am service will be filmed for livestreaming purposes. Although we will not be actively filming the congregation, you may be visible when seated or moving around the sanctuary. If you do not want to be filmed, talk to a steward about where to sit.
We look forward to meeting together on Sunday!

Praise & Worship
At Stirling Baptist Church we have a contemporary worship style an d include older hymns from time to time.
If you don't know a song, don't worry about it, all of the words appear on the screen and all of the tunes are very easy to pick up. Nobody’s going to ask you to sing a solo or to do a dance so just relax. We are also very blessed to have a number of gifted musicians who help us as we worship.
In worship we hope you will feel completely free to praise as you want. Some people like to sit, some like to stand, some like to raise their hands, some like to close their eyes (helps if you know the words for this one!). Please do whatever helps you to enter into worship with God. There is an opportunity for members and vsitors to ask to pray with members of the prayer ministry team.
Every week we hear a message from the Bible. They are delivered by our Senior Pastor Alasdair, other members of the Church and some guest speakers. These are relevant, interesting and are delivered in a challenging and stimulating manner.
During our services there is an opportunity for members or visitors to request prayer for any matter from our prayer ministry team.
Communion is held every Sunday during one of the three services and all committed Christians are welcome to take part. However there is no pressure to participate if for any reason you do not wish to take part.
What To Wear
Come – as you are.
There really isn’t a dress code – you can decide how smart or casual you want to be. Basically just relax and be yourself.
