There are many reasons why people think that church is not for them, such as, it'll be boring, I won't understand anything, I'm not good enough, I'm not sure if I believe, I don't like Cliff Richard, for example. But it is our hope and prayer that you'll find us welcoming, accepting and joyful! For we believe that everyone is made in the image of God and that He desires to know and be known by everyone.
Come join us and find for yourself the wonderful blessing of God's presence.
We pray that this short 2min video will be an encouragement for you.
"Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again! Dying you destroyed our death, rising you restored our life. Lord Jesus, come in glory."
We believe in the supremacy of one Holy, sovereign God; experienced as Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
We believe in the supreme Lordship of Jesus Christ and the divine inspiration of the Bible.
We believe in the transforming work of the Holy Spirit of God in the lives of believers; gifting, empowering and equipping us all for service in Christ's name.
We believe that no one is perfect, yet all are loved by God and that He desires the very best for us all. The life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ means anyone who calls on His name can know the forgiveness of God, fulfil their potential, and enjoy eternal life.
We believe in a believers’ church which understands itself as a community of the faithful gathered in the name of Jesus Christ, for worship, witness, fellowship and service; to continue Christ's ministry in the world.
We believe that Believers’ Baptism is a symbol of Jesus’ claim on our lives, proclaiming that we have died to self and live for Christ. It is a blessing that comes from being obedient to Christ's command.
Every Sunday, and at other times in the year, the fellowship gathers to celebrate the joy of knowing God and being known by Him; worshipping Him as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our worship style is a blend of contemporary and traditional, but our desire is whole-hearted Spirit filled praise to God the Father through Christ our Lord. Come as you are and let God draw near to you.
As well as on a Sunday, CRBC recognises and celebrates the fact that the church is the fellowship of disciples and we love to get together. Prayer forms a integral part of the churches life, whether on a Sunday, in small groups or privately in our homes and is seen as the solid foundation of our life together in God. In addition, throughout the year we will gather on a Saturday evening to share a meal and pray for a specific issue or organisation the church supports.
Members of the church regularly meet together through the week in small groups to uphold and encourage one another, reflect on God's word and praise Christ our saviour. So whether in someones home or in the church building, come and join us as we explore our faith together and grow as His disciples.
Groups exist for all ages and backgrounds.
We just love children playing a full part in the fellowship and desire to see them grow, explore and discover the delight of Christ's love for them. Every Sunday there is age appropriate activities for them as well as holiday clubs and a group called TOG.COM for the youth of the church. Child protection is taken very seriously and we have active policies in place and all our key volunteers are trained to a nationally recognised standard (BUGB - Safe To Grow).
Baptist churches are part of the mainstream protestant church movement and we believe in One God, expressed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. However, our unique characteristic is born of a belief in five principles in which this faith is expressed.
