COVID Rules Changes November 2021

In view of the recent Governmental changes to the rules and guidance concerning the wearing of masks in shops and on public transport which includes the suggestion that people wear masks in crowded places, the Deacons suggest that when attending our worship services people consider the crowded nature of the building and take their own appropriate action with regards to wearing a mask and in particular when singing.
 

Online Services

For the foreseeable future we will continue to broadcast live on Zoom. If you don’t feel able to come to the building then please join us online from 10:35am each Sunday.

At the beginning and end of the service there will be a chance to chat with the other Zoom participants, although you will be muted during the service itself.

Please email longbuckbybaptist@gmail.com for details of the Zoom meeting.

Once a video recording of the sermon is available, you'll find a link to it on the church website at longbuckbybaptist.org.uk/sermon-video.
 

Hope Explored

he-logo-full 564

Got questions about the Christian faith?

Ever really considered what Christianity is all about? Ever wondered whether you’re a Christian or not?

Then why not attend a 3-session course held at Long Buckby Baptist Church in January? The course is called Hope Explored and sessions run over three Saturday mornings between 9:00 and 10:30am or three Wednesday evenings between 7:30 and 9:00pm (your choice).

The Saturdays’ course starts on 8th January and the Wednesdays’ course on 12th January.

The Hope Explored content assumes little or no prior knowledge and is highly interactive, using video material to promote reflection and discussion based on the bible. No one will be asked to pray, sing, or even say anything if they don’t wish to. You’ll even get hot drinks and a snack.

Contact longbuckbybaptist@gmail.com for more information. You are equally very welcome to just show up at church on the day.
 
 

The Bridge International Emergency Appeal

We have some amazing news about the appeal - we have reached our target of £12,000! The Bridge International have started preparations to aim to start building as soon as possible. A huge thank you to all who have donated!

The Bridge Appeal small

There is a need to build a separate building for some extra children that have been “dropped off” at the orphanage without warning, which now makes the existing dormitory style building overcrowded. The new children are sleeping on the floor and there is not adequate bedding in some cases. In addition to this, there are many orphans waiting for a place who currently live at the local rubbish tip scavenging for food there.

Here is a video made by Eshwin and Timothy the overseers for the Good Shepherd home: https://youtu.be/fG4VgSDrrDM
 



You can give through BACS into the church account, but please put reference “The Bridge” or there are some gift envelopes in Church.

There is also a JustGiving page here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/thebridgezimbabwe.
 



 

Can we pray for you?

The church building may be closed but we are still here for the community. Place a card in the box attached to the noticeboard in front of the Baptist Church, on Long Buckby Market Place.

Feel comforted knowing that a small team will be praying for you and feel free to keep us updated. Be assured that your prayer requests & any information will be treated with confidence.
