What to expect

At HOUSE OF PRAYER MINISTRIES we feel that it's our responsibility to make it easy for you to come to church. We want you to be able to experience a great music, encouraging and challenging messages, friendly people and enjoyable atmosphere that are a part of our church.

We know that your first time at a church, any church, brings up some questions. How do I get there? What should I wear? What's available for my kids? What should I expect in church?

What happens when you get there

When you enter our facility, you will be welcomed by our ushers. If you have children, you will be asked to keep them with you during the worship and praise time which takes approximately 40 minutes

After this time, kids from 3 to 11 years old will be leaving the main service for Kidzone (commonly called Sunday School) where they will be taken care of by Sunday School teachers. You are more than welcome to keep your child(ren) with you if you don’t want them to go to Kidzone. Kidzone will finish at the same time as the main service. If your child(ren) went to Kidzone you can pick them up yourself or you can just wait in the main Hall for them as supervisors will endeavour to deliver them to you.

What is the service like?

You will discover that our services are very informal. We just want to help you learn about God and worship Him in a comfortable, non-threatening environment. There is no dress code. We all wear what we feel is most comfortable for a Sunday service. You are welcome to join in during the worship time in whatever manner you find most comfortable. No one has any expectations for you to do what others do; everyone has their own unique expressions of worship.

After the worship, get into prayer. We will hear announcements just afterwards.

We take an offering during our worship services to help with financial support of the church. As our guest, you have no obligation to give and you should feel no guilt or obligation when people are putting their offerings in the basket.

You will hear a timely, relevant message from our pastor or a guest speaker and finally receive the prayer of blessings.

When the meeting is over, the pastor or a minister will be available to pray for you if you wish for personal prayer. You will then be encouraged to enjoy a free cup of coffee or tea with biscuits, or cake or African doughnuts. This is a great time to meet a few people and become more familiar with those who attend our church.

Do not hesitate to ask any question in relation to anything you would like to know about our church. Hope to see you soon.
