Plan Your Visit

All visitors receive a warm welcome. You can just show up on any Sunday from 10:00am. Optionally, if it’s your first visit you can let us know that you’re coming in advance by completing the registration form so that one of our welcome team can meet you at the door, give you a little tour, sort out refreshments and help you get settled in for the Service.

Below is the information to help you plan for your visit. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

When?

We meet every Sunday at 10.30am for our Sunday Service. We start arriving at 10:00am to give us an opportunity to enjoy free refreshments including Tea, Coffee and Squash for the kids. The service usually ends between 11:45am – 12:00pm.

Families Welcome

LRBC is Family Friendly Church with children of all ages very welcome.

On Sundays we have a number of age appropriate Kids Church (ages 5 – 11) and Youth Church (ages 12 – 17) activities organised. Church follows the same local schools term-times, meaning Kids Church is NOT available during school holidays.

We have a fabulous Family area at church for children up to 4yrs. It’s packed with age-appropriate toys to keep the little ones entertained. There’s seating for parents and carers who can enjoy the service trough the large clear doors and speaker system.

Individuals & Couples Welcome

We have a wonderfully diverse range of people at LRBC. Couples & Individuals from all walks of life. You’ll meet people just like you.

All parts of the Sunday Service are Wheel Chair Friendly. Assistive listening is available for those who experience hearing loss and use a hearing aid. A large screen is used throughout the Service to deliver a wonderful experience.

Car Park

We have a large on-site car park, including a number of disability parking spaces. There is a also roadside street parking available.

Fortnightly Filming

Fortnightly, we film the Sunday Services in the main sanctuary and broadcast it live to our YouTube Channel (not Kids Church or Youth Church). For members and visitors that prefer not to appear in the recording, our safeguarding team have created a number of safeguarding seating areas. Please notify a member of the Welcome Team if you require seating in one of these areas.
