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.
Sundays in August
August is usually a little quieter in churches as families take the opportunity to take a holiday away from home. We're no different at BEChurch and throughout the month we're giving our Sunday school teachers a break from their weekly endeavours and some of our older Young People will be looking after the children during the services. Creche will also be available on request. We're putting our midweek meetings on hold and those will restart in September.
If you're visiting us please note that we're not able to have a service on Sunday 21 August at all, so I'm afraid we'll have to miss you that week.
Since we won't be meeting midweek take advantage of the afternoon fellowships planned for each Sunday as well. Keep an eye on the calendar and listen out during the weekly notices for specific details and times.
If you are away from us over the holiday period we hope you have a restful and relaxing holiday. Let me finally encourage you to encourage other churches where you're holidaying. There are 564 churches currently affiliated to the FIEC - churches that believe and teach the Bible faithfully - around the UK. Use the FIEC church search facility to see if there's a fellowship near where you're staying that you could worship with while you're away!

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.
