Our Mission

We meet for the purposes stated in Acts 2:42, “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in prayers”.

We gather to worship God (John 4:23-24), to teach and build up believers so that they can minister to the church (Ephesians 4:11-16), to preach the Gospel of Christ to the world (Mark 16:15), and to fellowship with Christ and with one another in Him (1 John 1:1-4).

About Us

God

We believe that there is only one, true and living God (Jeremiah 10:10) who eternally exists in three persons: God the Father (Ephesians 4:6), God the Son (John 1:14), and God the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).

Jesus Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was born of a virgin (Matthew 1:23); that He is the Son of God (Luke 1:35); that He was crucified, buried and rose again the third day (1 Corinthians 15:3-4); that He is now at the right hand of God the Father (Hebrews 1:3); and that He will return for His Church (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

Salvation

We believe that the death of the Lord Jesus Christ was accepted by God the Father as full payment for our sin (Hebrews 9:28); and that Salvation comes to all who, through faith, trust Him and His work alone to bring them to God (1 Peter 3:18).

Eternity

We believe in the Eternal Redemption of everyone who believes in our Lord Jesus Christ (Hebrews 9:12); and in the Eternal Punishment of everyone who does not have faith in Him (John 3:36).

the Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is one with the Father and the Son (1 Thessalonians 4:8); that He is present in the world (John 16:7-13); and that He lives in every Christian (1 Corinthians 3:16) from the moment of salvation (Ephesians 1:13-14).

the Holy Scriptures

We believe that all Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is the final authority for teaching, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).

Who are we?

Fairview Hall is a local meeting of Christians (followers of Christ) who seek to gather solely to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Who leads us?

Christ is the head of the church (Colossians 1:18), which is His body (Ephesians 1:22-23), and which is made up of all true followers of Him. Since the local gathering of believers is the local representation of Christ’s body, He is also the head of our local church.

What form of church government do we follow?

The Lord Jesus Christ guides us through a plural number of male Elders, in accord with the New Testament Scriptures (1 Timothy 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9). Deacons are also appointed by the elders to assist in ministering to the church (1 Timothy 3:8-13; Acts 6:1-7).

What is our foundation?

We stand on the supreme authority of the Scriptures, which are inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16). We rely on the Spirit of God alone to reveal, teach and illuminate the wisdom, truth and instruction revealed in the Scriptures. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Word of God and our only Foundation (John 1:1, 14; 1 Corinthians 3:11).

We desire to whole-heartedly follow the Word of God, interpreting the Scriptures with the Scriptures through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We only receive teaching, and teachers, who believe and follow this rule. We do not accept tradition or reasoning of men which do not correspond with the Scriptures. However we do take seriously what the Holy Spirit has taught those who have gone before us.

What gospel do we preach?

This is the gospel in which we stand: “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures. He was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Forgiveness comes through faith and trust in the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ alone, which brings us to God having made peace between God and us (Romans 5:1-2).

Our Meetings

Breaking of Bread

On a Sunday morning, when we meet together to break bread, everything is centered on our Lord Jesus Christ, so that in all things He may have the highest place (Colossians 1:18). The elements on the communion table, the bread and the cup, are symbols of the body and blood of our Saviour (Matthew 26:26-28). The purpose of this meeting is to remember, adore, worship and pay tribute to our Lord (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). The order of the meeting is very simple. Various men will take part as they are led by the Holy Spirit. Some may suggest a hymn to sing, some may read an appropriate Scripture and others may express worship, appreciation, praise or thanksgiving to the Lord in prayer. There may also be times of silent meditation, as we reflect on our precious Saviour. The service culminates in the breaking of the bread and the taking of the cup in remembrance of Christ’s death.

All are welcome to attend this Breaking of Bread meeting. Those who have put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone for salvation and who are seeking to live a life that is honouring and pleasing to God are welcome to participate in taking the bread and cup. If you have not yet received the free gift of salvation from our Lord Jesus Christ, or if you simply do not understand this type of meeting, please do not feel embarrassed to just pass the bread and cup without participating (1 Corinthians 11:27-29).

Family Service

Our second meeting on Sunday morning is intended to provide ministry to the church family. Here we seek to exhort believers from God’s Word to build them up in the faith and to preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ for those who have yet to put their faith and trust in Him.

Fellowship Lunch

This Sunday lunch, which takes place every immediately following the Family Service, is a time when we can come together for a light meal and friendly fellowship. Due to Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to hold this as normal.

Sunday School for Children

Ages 4 to 10

A meeting especially for children is held every Sunday morning from 11am to 12pm after the Breaking of Bread service. All Sunday School teachers have been Garda vetted. For further details, please contact us. All children are welcome to come.

Prayer Meeting & Bible Study

Every Wednesday evening, we come together for prayer, we bring our requests and thanksgiving to the Lord as a family. We seek to pray for the needs of our local church family, missionaries, government officials, and other needs that are requested. At this meeting we also devote time to spend in God’s Word for the building up of the assembly.
