Ministries

God has a purpose for every believer and so we encourage established Christians to be open to ministries that God has for them. Ephesians 2:10 says that God has made us what we are. He has created us to live lives filled with good works that he has prepared for us to do.

God’s purpose involves:

  • Fulfilling the Great Commission (Mark 16:15 Then Jesus said to them, “So wherever you go in the world, tell everyone the Good News.)

  • Building up the Body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-12 He also gave apostles, prophets, missionaries, as well as pastors and teachers as gifts to his church. Their purpose is to prepare God’s people to serve and to build up the body of Christ.)

Everyone has natural talents and gifting, ministry gives opportunity to use them for the glory of God. We are always opening to new ways to reach people, currently we have a few developing ministries.

 

Ushers

Our ushers are the first person you will see at our church, a friendly face to welcome you in. They have many tasks but their priority is to make sure that you are welcomed and taken care of.

Children's Ministries

Our children are the future and it is just as important they receive ministry as well as adults. Our aim is to see the children genuinely accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and to help them to develop their walk with God. We teach the children in an interesting and fun way, using visual aids, drama, puppets and games to convey the gospel message in a clear, uncompromising manner.

Sunday School is held alongside every Sunday am service after the praise and worship. Children aged between 4 to 12 years are welcome to attend.

Crèche is also available for children 3 and under during all regular services.


Worship Services

At The Potter's House, our lively worship services are Pentecostal in nature, featuring music, praise, Bible-Based preaching, ministry and prayer for personal needs.

Home Group Fridays

We invite you into the comfort of our homes, to learn, study and discuss various topics of the Bible. Come have some good food and a fun night.

Being a more relaxed environment, it gives people the openness to ask questions and really explore what God is about. Anyone is welcome, call to find out more!


Mens’ breakfast Discipleship

The men get together occasionally on a Saturday morning for a breakfast and discipleship class. This is where they can discuss, assist and teach one another as well as listen to each other’s ideas. The overall goal of discipleship is to train every Christian to understand some basic biblical truths that are vital in every Christian’s walk and to grow with it.

Ladies Morning Fellowship

Whilst the men get together, the ladies also meet up for some food as well! Be it at a local cafè, or at someone’s house, the ladies have this time to chill, hang out, and talk about girly things.

Occasionally, we also have ladies’ nights with fun activity such as pamper nights, body shop parties, and cooking nights. All are welcome to join - ladies only!


Outreach

We focus on personal evangelism throughout the local area of Bury St. Edmunds. Throughout the year we have many outreach ministries that focus on preaching the Gospel through music, drama, films, healing crusades etc., in local parks, gathering-places and estates. We also send bands, plays and musical productions out of town to help share the Gospel in other church residing in cities.

Part of working with our local community, we are one of the designated drop-off point in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, for the charity - The Hygiene Bank.

Donations are collected within our regular church service times.

International Impact Teams

We feel it's important to support churches outside of the United Kingdom so we send teams to other cities in England as well as other nations to share the gospel with others. Past overseas trips include Cambodia, Armenia, Ireland, Moldova, Malta and China.
