The latest advice from the government and the Baptist Union is to STOP all Sunday worship gatherings. So all Sunday services and gatherings at church are NOT taking place with immediate effect until further government advice is issued
We gather for an online Zoom service at 10.30am every Sunday. Unfortunately, due to security reasons we’re no longer able to share the link here.
If you’re a member, you’ll have the link for this in your emails, if you’ve joined us on a previous Sunday, it’s the same link as you’ve used before, otherwise, please do contact us to request it.

New Alpha courses
Many of us are familiar with the 24/7 Prayer Team, led by Pete Grieg. On Sunday, 12 April, they announced they would be joining with the UNITE714 initiative to pray twice a day for the healing of our land, and are encouraging Christians everywhere to do the same.
The initiative is based on 2 Chronicles 7:14 (hence the reference to 714) and the idea is that we set our alarm for 7:14 twice a day, morning and evening, and join in prayer with potentially millions of Christians worldwide.
“It’s time to take God at his word: to humble ourselves, to get our hearts right, to pray for the healing of our lands from the Covid-19 virus – and for an outpouring of God’s spirit in the midst of this crisis.” Pete Grieg

Community Support Scheme
The council is running a Community Support Scheme whereby anyone, able and willing to help others during this pandemic, can be linked up with someone in need of help.
The process will be that a request for help will be received and passed over to a volunteer who has indicated their willingness to assist in that particular area. Any monies spent will be reimbursed by RBC on receipt of both a photocopied receipt from the volunteer and an acknowledgement of goods received by the recipient.
To sign up, volunteers need to apply/register via this link, specifying that it is for the Covid-19 Community Support.
