Easter at BCC

Easter is not a festival to  celebrate the general principle of ‘life’ – it is recognition of a happening.  Easter is not a memorial to a religious leader who has passed – it is a celebration of a life present with us.

The cross and resurrection of Jesus was the turning point of history.  It’s when the way of  relating to God changed from being based on ceremonies and sacrifices to being personal and
intimate.  It was the time when God stopped being ‘out there’ to ‘living in me’.  

The arrival of Jesus was so important that eventually even the way we count time was made to revolve around His coming.  B.C. to A.D. was the common way of seeing the time before Christ’ (B.C.) and the time ‘since Christ’ (A.D.).

A.D. stands for ‘Anno Domini’ which means ‘in the year of the Lord’.   So important was this coming into history that everything began to be counted from the time from when Jesus was born, died and rose again.  No other figure on the stage of human history has had such an effect.

This Easter could be your A.D.!  It could be the moment where you begin to count from a turning point where you decided to  investigate seriously the claims of Jesus and even become His friend.  This could be your A.D. - After Decision

We all have a B.C. – a ‘Before Christ’.  This was a  time when we had not really realised how much Christ was willing to sacrifice on our behalf.  B.C. or ‘Before the Cross’ the way of coming to God was the hard work of self effort, but on the cross Jesus took our place and paid for our wrong doings and our lives.  What a great happening! 

By rising from the dead, Jesus is still alive and we can decide to let Him direct and be a part of our lives.   But we have to decide - decide to give Him the leadership of our lives, decide to give him our heart.  As we decide, it’s a turning point for us where our lives are literally washed clean and renewed in His love… it’s amazing… it’s A.D.

After Decision... Your decision - it’s as easy as A, B, C, and D.

  • Admit you are lost
  • Believe Jesus died and rose again for you
  • Confess Him as your Lord
  • Decide to accept Him in

You can move from B.C. to A.D. and walk into new life.

We do hope you will check out everything this Easter at BCC and investigate all that God has for you in a post A.D. life!

First 40 (1).jpg

First 40

We are calling BCC to do three simple things for the first 40 days of the year.

LET'S PRAY

In the first week of January your pastors will send you 7 key prayer devotionals. On January 10th every group and ministry in church will come together to pray.

LET'S BIBLE

As we read privately or listen to an audio bible, we will come together to encourage and discuss what we have read or heard.

LET'S FAST

For the first 40 days let's copy Jesus who fasted. You pick one day or as many you feel led to do.

Understanding The Times - Sundays at BCC

The Bible often talks about seasons... Are we in the last days? Are we in a transition season? How can we approach these times?

Let's anchor ourselves in what the Bible says on how we approach these times.

Celebration Sundays

On the last Sunday of each month throughout our first 40  days, we will bring both of our services together for one Big Celebration at 10.30am.

Child Sponsorship Programme

BCC CHILD SPONSORSHIP PROGRAMME

TRANSFORMED LIVES, TRANSFORMING CHILDREN'S LIVES

Every child is unique and deserves the chance to dream, to achieve incredible things and to look forward to a wonderful future. By becoming a sponsor you are helping break the cycle of poverty for your sponsored child and their community.

To become a sponsor in our Child Sponsorship Programme you would need to fill in a Standing Order Form and hand it in at the Info Point on a Sunday. We are asking you to give £15 monthly for at least a year.

As soon as you sign up to be a sponsor, we will send you a welcome pack with a photo of the child you are sponsoring and an overview of their situation so far. We will ask you to pray for a specific child, but to give your money to City Gates Academy, Philippines so that every child can benefit from your generosity. And that's just the start of the journey ... you will get school reports and news letters and even a handmade Christmas card from the children in Coron.
