SUNDAYS

We would love to see you on a Sunday! The service starts at 11:00 and usually lasts for approximately 90 minutes. Prior to the start you can sit and chat over a cup of coffee or tea in the cafe. We have a great band at BCC who lead praise & worship which is usually followed by a 40 minutes preach. After the service if it’s your first time then we would love to get to know you in the Welcome Area at the back of the Auditorium over complimentary drinks and snacks. If you are considering coming to BCC for the first time then have a look at our First Visit page as well. We look forward to seeing you and making you feel at home!

SMALL GROUPS

We have a fantastic network of small groups, which are based in various areas across the city. Our small groups are on the second and fourth weeks of each month, running on different evenings, as well as during the day. These groups are a great way to get connected with people and encourage one another. We also have a specific small group for our young adults (18+). The small groups use a variety of material some of which has previously included, Alter Ego by Craig Groschel, Sun Stand Still by Steven Furtick, The Natural Evangelism Course by J.John and Follow by Andy Stanley. If you would like to come along to a small group please contact Dave and Faith Asplin.
