Church is about much more than what happens on a Sunday but this is the day when we all gather together at our church building. Our main service is at 11am, the service ends by 12.30pm and refreshments are available afterwards.
Perhaps you’ve never been to a church service before; maybe you find going somewhere new can be a daunting experience. We’re fairly informal in our style and our congregation is made up of all kinds of people; from those who have never been to a church service to those come every week and with people of all ages, backgrounds, cultures and different stages of Christian experience. So whoever you are, wherever you have come from and whatever you have been through, there is a place for you at BRBC.
What happens in a service can vary a bit but generally we begin with singing some songs together that help us praise God and encourage each other. We will pray, sometimes led by one person, sometimes people will pray from wherever they are standing or sitting and sometimes we'll have time for quiet reflection. Someone will give a talk based on the Bible as we believe God speaks to us through the Bible.
Under 16? Children join us for the first part of the service and then go to groups for age related activity and teaching. We provide a creche for infants and toddlers, a junior church for children and a youth group for secondary schoolers. All our children’s and youth leaders are DBS checked.
Once a month we share bread and wine (non-alcoholic) together. We do this because Jesus told us to remember his death and resurrection in this way.
On the second Sunday of the month there is no creche or Junior Church as the whole church family stays together for the service.
