Towards the end of the day it is good to gather again around God’s word, spend time in prayer together and sing God’s praise.
We are currently working through the Old Testament in our evening services, and will be looking at Ruth and 1 Samuel in 2019.
The service tends to have a more intimate and informal feel than the morning service, and so we regularly have the opportunity for open prayer and discussion as part of the meeting.
The service typically lasts about 75 minutes with refreshments served at the end. You would be very welcome to join us!
Our morning worship service typically lasts about 1.5 hours.
The whole church spends the first 30 minutes together, and then we split off with separate teaching groups for the young people. There’s also a crèche room which you’re very welcome to take little ones out to.
Our Sunday services usually comprise:
- Welcome and notices
- Some periods of sung worship
- A reading
- A sermon
For church members and regular attenders there is a collection taken during the morning service, but there is no obligation at all to give – we are just very happy to have you with us!
Currently the adults are going through the book of Hebrews together in the morning service. You can listen to previous sermons on the “sermons” section of the church website.
“Tiddlers” is our toddler group which runs through term time from 10.00-11:30am. It’s a popular event with plenty of toys, coffee for the grown-ups, snacks for the little ones and a time of singing and Bible stories.
You will be very welcome to join us!
The flyer below has some information on the group:
We also have a facebook page for the various kids groups at NBBC, so why not log in there for updates and info.
If you need any further info please call Hana on 01225 763 583.
For Primary aged kids we have the Signposts Club every Friday during term time.
The club is on Fridays starting at 6:00pm, so come along for an hour and have a great time!
Once every couple of months we also run “The Hub” on a Sunday afternoon from 4-6pm. This is an opportunity for the families to come along to an accessible church service which also incorporates a time of games and a light meal together. There’s info about both Signposts and The Hub on the flyer below:

Services this Christmas are going to be held on the 20th at 10:30 for our Family Carol service (children welcome in nativity costumes!), and at 5:00pm for the Village nine lessons and carols service. Then, on the 25th at 10:00am there’s a short Christmas service (there is a tree so if families want to bring something for the children to open afterwards, that’ll be fine).
Mince pies all round! Hope to see you.
This year saw our second women’s conference ably lead by Catherine who delivered three sessions on the subject – Beauty through Brokenness. It was a real privilege to host so many who joined together for what proved to be an important meeting.
The recordings are available now to listen to on-line or download and be accessed here:
Session1: Emotions: mirrors of the heart.
Session 2: Suffering the sneers, the fears and the tears.
Session 3: His beauty through our brokenness.
Ephesians stands as one of the great towering letters of Paul, the first of his ‘general’ epistles found in scripture. Addressed less specifically to one congregation and their particular situation and more widely to the issues faced by the many, its appeal is obvious. At heart there is the concern that Christians of any and all backgrounds do not see themselves as anything less than full and entitled members of Christ’s body. Jesus the King presides over an impartial kingdom where all His citizens have absolute equality in His sight.
“…there is no partiality with Him”. – Ephesians 6:9
The series begins this Sunday.
