Sunday worship at First Baptist Moncton is Christ-centered worship with challenging, Bible-based messages, offered in two different styles of worship services both held in the 700-seat Sanctuary of the church.
The 9:00 am service, known as “The Bridge”, is contem-porary worship led by a Worship Band, and complemented with a state-of-the-art audio-visual system in the recently renovated Sanctuary. Multimedia graphics are used for praise, Bible readings, and in many other aspects of worship. The Worship Band caters to those with more modern music preferences, and includes acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keyboard, bass and vocalists. The service has an informal feel, with an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance.
The Traditional Worship service, held at 11:00 am, is built on the long tradition of worship in the beautiful historical Sanctuary of First Baptist. Music has always been a central part of traditional worship at First Baptist, with the 40-voice Sanctuary Choir, children’s choir, handbell choirs, the 2,214 pipe Organ and Yamaha Baby Grand piano. A variety of musical styles including traditional Baptist hymns, gospel, classical, classical contemporary choral jazz, spirituals and home-coming is incorporated into the services. Instruments such as trumpet, flute, harp, guitar, violin and piano are featured at various times throughout the year. In addition, First Baptist has several special musical events during the year. Traditional worship at First Baptist provides an atmosphere of reverence for meaningful worship.
