Local Programs & Services

We at South End Baptist offer the following programs to the greater Dartmouth area:

Sunday Morning Worship: We gather Sunday mornings anticipating an encounter with the Holy Spirit of God.  We worship through song, story, art, drama, silences, prayers, Scripture reading, and preaching.  We also participate as a community in the celebration of the Lord’s Table (usually at the first Sunday of each month but also at other times and during special services).  The Lord’s Table is a simple meal where the community re-enacts and remembers God’s gracious hospitality to the world and our Lord’s ongoing work of renewing, restoring, and reclaiming all that has been lost or broken.  This is a family friendly time since we have a nursery and junior church for kids.

Youth Group Activities: Each week youth from the neighborhood  gather in the church hall to hang out, check out some fun activities, explore the relevance of faith to their everyday lives, share some tasty snack food,  and plan events/road trips together.

Our Junior High Group (grd 6-8) meets Monday evenings from 5:30 – 7:30 PM

Our Senior High Group (grd 9-11) meets Sunday evenings from 6:00 – 8:00 PM

Men’s Ministry: The 3rd Tuesday of every month the men of the congregation get together for a time of sharing and fellowship over a hot breakfast at Cora’s on Portland Street.   They meet at 8:00 am and are open to men of all ages joining in their fellowship.

Women’s Ministry:  Women meet at the Church (in the Heatley Room from 10:00am-1:00pm) on the third Thursday every month for a time of bible study, sharing, games, and a pot-luck luncheon.

Seniors Ministry:  Seniors are active in all aspects of our church life.  They bowl together every Tuesday afternoon at the Woodside Bowlarama (31 Atlantic Ave, Dartmouth, NS).

Small Group Bible Studies: We meet weekly throughout the year to explore the meaning and relevance of Scripture in our lives within a small supportive group (contact us for ongoing study times and locations).

Small Group Prayer: We meet weekly at the Steak and Stein Restaurant on Portland Street, Dartmouth to enjoy a hot breakfast and a time of sharing and prayer for individual concerns, as well as items related to our church and its surrounding community (contact us for exact details).
