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

The events of Easter are at the very heart of the Christian faith. At this time we remember 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! There is so much to take in that we can easily be overcome with the enormity of all that was achieved on that wondrous day. Many in the UK are blessed to have a 4 day weekend so use it to take some time to refresh your memory and your faith and re-read the accounts from each of the four gospels.

In addition to our usual Sunday service there are several other events going on:

We will also be meeting together on the evening of Maundy Thursday for a passover service with Benjamin Hersh. Benjamin will be taking us through the meal and explaining how each part points us towards Christ's ultimate sacrifice on the cross. We'll start at 7.30pm on Thursday in the Bourton Centre, so plan to arrive a little earlier than that.

On Good Friday we have planned a "Prayer Trail". Throughout the day we will travel between several homes of congregation members and spend some time together in prayer. The focus of our prayers will be different at each home we visit.

Our Easter Sunday worship service will be preceded by a light breakfast. Please join us at 9.30am, the main service will start as usual at 10:30am.

Finally, on Easter Monday we're intending to get out into the countryside for a morning ramble. We'll be walking out from Hillesden church at 10am.

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.

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.
