***UPDATED*** At the core of Christianity we see in Acts 2:42-47 a picture of the early church:


Acts 2:42-47

The fellowship of the believers

42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.


As Church Leaders at LWBC and Trustees we believe there is a place where God will honour those who honour Him. This doesn’t mean we are approaching this current situation in a foolish way – our approach is neither to panic nor be complacent, but to have that reverent fear of God above any viruses.

However, due to recent Government suggestions about meeting places to be closed, the leadership team and the trustees believe it is right and proper that we are not seen to be out of step with these suggestions, so there will be no services or gatherings until further notice.

We believe our God is greater and stronger and He is for us – but equally we want others to learn about His love too, and therefore we need to be seen to be people of respect as well.


Sunday Mornings:

With regards to the Sunday Morning teaching, we will pick up The Bible Society video series that we were doing at the All Age Service, and finish these over the next 6 Sundays. Please see this page http://lwbc.org.uk/the-bible-society-video-course/ for more details, and a FREE link to download the booklets that were originally £4.99

There will also be some live streams on Facebook – Darren and The BC Family are currently taking song requests and you can listen in during the morning and evening when they streaming live via Facebook (we understand you don’t need an account to see it – but let us know if this is incorrect) – Darren’s page can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100010321422505 and previous videos can be found on this page via the image links below:


Finally, let us continue to encourage each other, and look for opportunities to bless others around – let us shine as people of peace full of God’s love, grace and mercy.

If anything changes we will update you – the best way to stay in touch is to sign up to our newsletter which will collate as much info as possible and share it in one go.

During the current virus situation there are a number of tools available to churches and individuals, as well as helpful and balanced information from Christian sources.

Visit this website (note it is heavily text and link orientated) https://covid.churcheshandbook.co.uk/ This is a crowd-sourced index of useful digital communication tools for church leaders, communications teams and church staff to refer to during the coronavirus outbreak and is being updated daily, so make sure to save any information you like as it may be different the next time you go back to it.

For our latest information on COVID-19, please visit this page.

Information seems to be changing on an hourly basis, therefore we suggest you sign up to our newsletter and we will publish information as we are able to engage with it.

This newsletter will also have helpful hints and tips to still engage with church and praying for each other.



As this situation has developed we have reviewed arrangements at church and will continue to do so in line with Government Policy.

As Church Leaders we believe we have a Healer God who is bigger than any virus and as such we should continue where it is possible and legal to devote ourselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. This means that we will put on hold any organised midweek gatherings in church, but at this time, we will continue to worship on Sunday Mornings.

This doesn’t mean we are approaching this in a foolish way – our approach is neither to panic nor be complacent, but to have that reverent fear of God above any viruses.

We have looked at the current government guidelines for funeral services in churches and as such this model seems to fit our small church gatherings.

There will be no refreshments served at all on Sunday morning and people will be restricted to the main hall and the reception area where the toilet facilities are. Seating will also be laid out at a sensible distance too. If any presents as ill we would ask that they refrain from entering the building. Cleaning will take place before and after the services and we would ask people to catch coughs and sneezes and hand wash for 20 seconds with soap and water.

We will offer some live streaming of Services and if you would like to keep up to date with things at church, please complete the form below to sign up for our newsletter which will be produced regularly to keep you informed of church life. Details will also appear here, so please come back regularly for updates or see our social media pages LIMBRICKWOODBC.
