Welcome to Brabourne Baptist Church
We are a community-focused group of people who are seeking to love God by following Jesus, loving others and serving our world. If you are in the area and would like to join us, you will be made very welcome.
At Brabourne Baptist Church we meet on Sunday mornings at 10.30am. We also meet at other times of the week for home groups.
Cafe Wednesday (every Wednesday morning) has been serving the community now for many years.
There are a number of other groups who meet once or twice a month: including "Meeting Point", Ladies Bible Study/Coffee Morning, Ruth Group, and the Art and Camera Club which meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 10.00AM.
Our wider links are with the "Congregation of the Way" in Karmiel, "Open Doors", "Tear Fund", "Fair Trade", "Operation Sunshine", "Baptist Union" and "SEBA" and "BMS".

God made a Covenant with Israel who were called to be Holy Nation,Chosen to bear witness to his steadfast love by finding delight in the law.
The covenant was renewed and extended in Jesus Christ our Lord,in his life and work,death and reurrection,that in him all people may be set free from sin and its power and united in love and obedience.
In this covenant God promises to give us new life in Christ,We for our part are pledged to live no more for ourselves but for God .
Now we come ,as generations have met beforeus,to renew the Covenant which bound them and binds us to God.
So as the people of Brabourne Baptist Church we come,on this first Sunday of the New Year (2019)to stand in Gods Presence and renew our promises to Him and to each other.As Gods people here in this place,this is something that is good for us to do .If you are a visitor with us today and you too would like to re-affirm yourself in faith and service to the Lord,then please feel free to join with us in our responses.
If you are comfortable to now stand then please do ,The answers are all WE DO,except for the last which is a WE WILL.

With Gods help and in his power this Church was established in and for this community by the saints of the past generations.We are now Brabourne's people.We are now the Church of today.
