What to expect Sunday Morning?
Who comes to City South?
When do we start?
What style of music do we have?
The music we sing at City South Baptist Church is a blend of old and new. We love the old doctrinally rich hymns and we also find blessing in the modern choruses that are focused on the truth of God’s Word. We prefer congregational singing, which emphasizes the gathered body singing praise to God with one voice, over performed music, which tends to spotlight the abilities of some while encouraging passivity in the rest.
What are the important aspects of the service?
What do our sermons look like?
Preaching at City South Baptist Church is generally expositional, meaning that it seeks to declare the point of a particular Biblical passage. Sermons usually last around half an hour and are packed with material for reflection. On a regular basis, our sermon series alternate between the Old and New Testaments. All preaching is driven by the Gospel, the Bible’s main message of God saving sinners through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Listen to our most recent sermon below or see the last few years of sermons here.
What do children do?
Other than the first Sunday of the month and school holidays, the children up to year 7 leave the service around half way through and have special Sunday school classes in the hall downstairs. They sing, hear Bible stories and do crafts as they learn more of the love of God and how He works in their lives.
