Service suspension

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the government and the Baptist Union have asked churches not to gather on Sundays or during the week. We are taking their advice. With regret, we are suspending all church services and meetings until further notice, and the buildings are closed.

Maintaining fellowship

Our fellowship is alive even when we are unable to meet in our building!

Use our weekly remote church resources for worship in your own homes: this includes a reflection, some children's resources, and updates from the newsletter.

Peter will be contactable during the week. We will post a reflection every Sunday that we'd invite you to watch and comment on; it'll be on Youtube, Facebook, and the website. We started a private Facebook group for prayer and discussion; please join it if you are part of the RBC family. And, of course, let's stay in touch with each other and support each other, whether online, by phone, or (where appropriate and safe) in person.

We'll put out more information as things develop. Watch this space, and know this.

The LORD makes firm the steps
of the one who delights in him;
though he may stumble, he will not fall,
for the LORD upholds him with his hand.

Psalm 37:23-24 (NIV)

A Christmas Eve service


The church building is wheelchair accessible and there are disabled toilet facilities in the John Lees Hall next door. For those with hearing aids, an induction loop covers the centre of the church between the two aisles. We project our songs onto a screen but a large print copy is available if you need it.
