The BGBC Afternoon Service is an informal church service for anyone; but was born out of a desire to keep in contact with those who has chosen to participate in sport on the Sunday morning.
The service is a relaxed hour, where children aged 6/7 years old and over are encouraged to stay in the service, worship and learn with their families. Activities are provided in the back hall for those younger.
During the hour you can expect a time of lively worship and singing, praying, interviews and interactivity. The sermon is short, often delivered in sections, and is interspersed with lots of activities and discussion.
Every week we finish a bring and share, “potluck” tea together, between 5.30pm and 6.30pm.
Hungry Harry (the big dustbin just inside the chapel doors at the front) has an empty tummy!

Please join us on Tuesday 24th April 2018, at 20:00, for our annual Church AGM.
Everyone who attends BGBC is an integral and important part of the Church Family and we’d love it if you could join us. If you would like to take a more active role in the life of the church and be involved in the decision making and are not yet a member please speak to Charlie or one of the Elders about becoming one (which would enable you to vote at Church Meetings).
The agenda can be found here.
If you would like further documents please contact the church office and we’ll be happy to send them out.
Start the year with prayer. The prayer team would like to call all of BGBC to a week of prayer.
The church will be open for a guided prayer time each day from Monday the 15th to Sunday the 21st of January 2018. Our theme will be ‘walking with Jesus into 2018 and beyond’.
Please make a note in your diary of the dates and times of the sessions.
Please click on the image below for a copy of the Walking with Jesus prayer guide. If you are unable to physically attend Week of Prayer events, you can still participate. This guide picks up the theme and readings for each day and offers a couple of thoughts and suggestions to guide your prayers and reflections.
We are delighted to announce that Matt will be joining us again at BGBC for our Afternoon Service on 26th November where he will talking about ‘Faith in Sport’.
