“I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now” (Philippians 1:3-5)
Our aim is to support “gospel partners” across a variety of missions, both close to home and overseas.
Taking the relationship between the Apostle Paul and the Philippian church as our example, we hope our gospel partnerships too are characterised by intimacy. They knew each other and cared for each other (Philippians 1:8). It was a partnership with people, not an organisation.
We hope that like them our partnerships also are informed. We can see in Philippians 4:4 and 4:16 that Paul and the Philippians knew each other’s needs. We aim to have good communication with our gospel partners so we can support each other well, and so our praying is informed and effective.
Thirdly, we want these partnerships to be involved (as we see in Philippians 1:5). We aim for long term, consistent relationships with both giving and receiving (Philippians 4:16) at it’s heart.
These partnerships should involved purses (Philippians 4;16), people (they sent personnel as we see in Chapter 2), and prayer (Philippians 1:3-4 and 1:19).
With these things in mind we currently support the following gospel partners at NBBC:
Daniel Caballero working with UFM / GBM in Peru.
Chris Morgan with his local outreach ministry
*** Due to weather conditions this morning’s service is cancelled ***
We have Daniel down with us at Phil’s but the weather is poor for travel. We’ll review this as the day goes on and are considering an afternoon service but the forecast makes this unlikely too. We’ll also look at an option to record or broadcast something though Daniel has said he hopes to return and visit in June anyway.
Have a great morning, do let us know if you are in need at all, spend some time in God‘s word and in prayer, there are some great sermon resources available online, so redeem the time. Help a neighbour and have fun if snow is your thing.
More news later please check the Facebook page for latest updates.
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 at present we are looking at the book of 2 Samuel.
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.
