Congregation at BEC

We sincerely welcome everyone who is searching for truth from God and meaning in life. We are a church that enjoys taking God and His Word seriously, a church that strives to be loving and encouraging. We have found the Bible, God's timeless and relevant Word, not only helpful but essential in getting to know Him. May you discover the reality of the living God, and the person of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Looking forward to Easter

As we again look forward to Easter this year we are again reminded of all that the Lord Jesus did in going to the cross and taking on himself the punishment for our sin. But we praise God that he was raised to life again!

Why not take some time to re-read the accounts from each of the four gospels. Perhaps use a study guide like this one by Tim Keller to help direct your thoughts.

In addition to our usual Sunday services there are several other events going on. Be sure to make a note of them in your diary:

Faith Foundations

Knowing why you believe what you believe is critical if you are going to be effective in your Christian life. For this reason we're running a series called "Faith Foundations" where we will look at the basics of the faith and an overview of the Bible. For some this will be completely new territory, for others perhaps a useful reminder, but everyone is welcome to attend.

These classes will run on the 3rd Sunday each month, after the morning service. We'll provide a soup lunch and then aim to start at 1pm, with each session lasting no more than an hour. Children at primary school should have no problem joining in but there is a creche available for the very young.

Missed a Service? Listen online

Whether you're helping in Sunday School or creche, are out of town for a week or are just curious about what is preached at our church, the majority of our sermons are recorded. You can listen to all of our sermons online or download them to your favourite MP3 player. Just click to our latest sermons page and select the sermon you want to hear.

Why should I read the Bible?

It's become traditional for people to begin each new year by resolving to do things differently. Whether it's to stop smoking, to lose weight, to get fit or something else, every resolution is made with a goal in mind.

With this in mind, it's good for the Christian to make resolutions too. Lets face it, not one of us is sinless: that's why we followed Christ in the first place. While we are no longer mastered by sin we are still prone to getting ourselves tangled up in it. Knowing God's word - the Bible - can help us avoid getting into sin in the first place. But if you're already in a mess it can also help you get untangled.

In his sermon entitled, Breaking Free from Sin, John McArthur challenges us that knowing and memorising scripture is vital in the fight against sin in our lives.
