A church for those who don’t go to church

Rather than expect people to come to church services, we visit a street every week, to get to know our community.

Our game plan is not to drag people to church. But, we are persuaded there are huge reasons to follow Jesus Christ for this life and the next. And we’d love an opportunity to explore this with you in the context of friendship.

Of course it goes without saying that anyone who’d like to join us for a church service (starts 5:30pm) will be absolutely welcome.  A good way to find out why we should follow Jesus is to be in a place where you’ll understand the Bible as it is explained.  And you can see the difference it makes when you hang out with Christians.

Services

We meet every Sunday at 5.30pm at The Becontree Church Centre (330 Hedgemans Road).

It’s the sort of meeting that anyone would feel at home in. We praise God for his love for us and for people on our estate, and speak to him about what is important to him and to us.

We’ll discover how God speaks from the Bible to humble us, and to create new love for him and for others.

All that in simple every day English anyone can understand.

We also run a Toddler Group on Tuesdays (9:30 ttogether with a youth group on Fridays.  Please click on the ‘youth group’ link to see more!

Upcoming Visits

Normally, every Sunday afternoon between 2-3:30pm we aim to visit a small number of homes hoping to eventually make friends with everyone who lives in our area.

But the next few Sunday afternoons (starting 10th March), will see us delivering birthday card invitations to a couple of special events on Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday.

It’s our 5th birthday you see, and in 5 years we’re happy to have…
• Visited 5,000 homes on our estate (& written 2000 ’thank you cards’ afterwards).
• A Toddler Group (Tuesdays 9:30 – 10:45 am)
• A Free English class (Tuesdays 12:45 to 2:45pm)
• Youth groups every Friday evening
• A growing Sunday congregation with gripping Bible teaching (@ 5:30 pm)
 
It’s our birthday, but it’s your party!  So join us
