As of 19th February, there is going to be a new focus for the evening services.
1st Sunday of the month. This service will include the sharing of stories about what God has done or is doing in people’s life’s. This will normally be in the form of an informal interview. The service will also include some sung praise, videos, prayer and a message from the Bible.
2nd Sunday of the month. The main focus of this service will be communion where we remember the death of Jesus. Communion will be central and the service will often include prayer, reflection, video, a short message and some sung praise
3rd Sunday of the month. This service will be a more contemporary service aimed particularly at the millennial generation. It will include a more contemporary worship style and message. The service will at times be interactive and use video, reflective images and drama.
4th Sunday of the month. As part of this service we will engage with a culturally relevant topic or follow a sermon series as we consider how the Bible speaks today. This service will also include some sung praise, videos and prayer.
The verse for LBC for 2017 is ….
2 Cor 5v7: “We walk by faith and not by sight.”
Our preoccupation up on the balcony, as you will realise if you have been listening to the notices recently, is people (techs), or lack of them.
We first published this post in May 2015 and since then things have got worse not better ….!
We need 3 techs…. Having three individuals on for each service allows us to do some training, keeps the stress levels down, and ensures we are prepared and ready to switch on when Rae stands up. Continue reading New Techies?

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’

Our Pastor Rae is currently doing a series of messages from the life of Nehemiah. If you have missed any, you can catch them again on our podcasts page...
When Nehemiah served the king,
His face was always glad.
But one day when he came to serve,
His face was very sad.
The king and queen asked him why
And listened to his sad reply;
“Jerusalem is broken down.
And that’s what makes me cry!”
The King let Nehemiah go
To help rebuild the city.
But when he saw Jerusalem,
His heart was filled with pity.
It’s mighty walls
Were broken down
With rocks and rubble
“Come on! Let’s build!”
He cried to all
The people in the town.
