We are slowly re-opening our building
but the Church is made of people.
We are still here for You!
You are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple (from the bible)
Everyone is welcome to join us for our weekly on-line service.
Zoom ID: 856-699-2818
Facebook: Claremont Church, Bolton (@claremontbolton.Church)
Starts at 10:30 every Sunday.
It's All About People!
Many of our church members will be pleased to tell you how their lives have radically changed since they made a decision to follow Jesus Christ. Several are available to listen to on our 'Life Stories' page. Here are just a few examples:
- The man with a history of drink and drug related violence, who now spends all his spare time helping others for whom life hasn't worked out too well.
- The person who knew from an early age that he was good for nothing - but found fulfilment and success when he allowed Jesus Christ to lead him.
- The woman who truly believed that she was stupid and inadequate, because her parents told her so as a child, who is now highly regarded by all who know her.
- The person with an incurable drinking habit who was set free in an instant by Jesus Christ and no longer needs or craves alcohol.
- The businessman who sold out to Christ and found that he can be successful without resorting to dishonesty or 'smart' accounting.
- The singer / songwriter who loves to sing for Jesus first.
- The man who was always very focused on wealth and possessions, has found that he has become generous and giving since he chose to join God's team.
- The lady who was healed in her own home when she claimed healing by the blood of Jesus Christ.
- We frequently hear about lives changed and bodies healed in response to prayer. You can hear some of these testimonies in our Life Stories section.
There's no doubt that Jesus really is alive today and really changes our lives - if we will let Him!
(It's not about obeying rules.) ... What counts is whether we have been transformed into a new creation. (Galatians 6:15 NLT)
" … when you see people praying and prayers being answered week after week, it makes you think.”
Welcome to On-Line Church
The Coronavirus epidemic has made us all rethink what Church means - and that isn't a bad thing. Since our building has been closed, we have had more contact with each other than we ever did before, our congregations are higher, attendance at our bible studies and prayer meetings is holding up and many people are learning what it means to really depend on God our Father for everything we need!
If you need convincing about that, just listen to the stories of several members on our "Listen to a message" page.
During the present worldwide pandemic, we meet on-line every Sunday using the Zoom conferencing program and we also stream the service live on Facebook at; @claremontbolton.Church. If you wish to join the Zoom meeting, but are unsure how to join Zoom, please contact us by email, messenger or from the web site and we will try to help you.
When will we be back in our building?
The move has already started! From this week, Claremont House will be open for a short time of fellowship and prayer, every Tuesday. Our current plan, COVID statistics permitting, will be to return to Sunday meetings towards the end of April. In anticipation of our return to face-to-face church, we have already taken steps to prepare our building. Here is a summary of the changes that have made us a COVID-Secure environment.
How would I know if God is trying to speak to me? What do I do about it?
In the bible there is a story about a boy named Samuel who worked for God by serving the old priest, Eli. (You can read it in 1 Samuel 3:1-10). God called Samuel by name but he didn't recognise who was calling. In the end, the old priest told him to return and, when he heard God's voice, to say: "Speak Lord, your servant is listening". That was the beginning of a very important time in Israel's history.
We don't always recognise God's voice, but the church is here to help with that. If something strange happens to you when you hear a Christian song, read a piece of scripture, or listen to someone preach - don't ignore it. The church has people who will help and pray with you as you try to understand if it is God trying to get your attention. Call or email us for someone to help!
Coronavirus (COVID19) - a brief response
This pretty little organism has been responsible for throwing most of the world out of shape. Many have questions like "Why did God allow it?". We have posted a page called Dangerous Times in our Church Q & A section in order to consider some of these questions. One thing that we can assure you is; God is not taken by surprise and His love for every one of the people that He created has not diminished.
If you have concerns about your future - and who doesn't? - Jesus Christ really does have all the answers. You can read more in our Church Q & A, or please email or call us. We would love to introduce you to Jesus, the Christ, (the Man that God promised to send to set us free from the rut into which we have got ourselves).
Songs From the Word of God
It has always been a mark of the church that we love to sing to our Lord, and now we are pleased to share these songs written and performed for the glory of God. If you would like to hear more of Claremont's own brand of Christian music, try our "Listen to Music" page, where you will find a selection of various styles of original music.
Enjoy this sample!
These songs are copyrighted but it is our pleasure to allow them to be played freely and used for Christian worship without charge.
