Christmas is amazing news! It’s the news that the God of heaven stepped into time and space as a man and was born a baby. It’s amazing news that announces God is not far from us. God has walked our road and felt our pain. And most of all God came to bring peace between us and him. You’re very welcome to come and celebrate Christmas with us at Beccles Baptist Church this Christmas. Below are details of our services, including a short two minute video all about our different events.

About Our Services
At BBC we love to meet together as a church to worship God every Sunday. Services normally start at 10.30am and 6.30pm
Most morning services last about an hour and a quarter to an hour and a half. An additional 5 to 10 minutes is required once a month when communion follows the service. We invite anyone in good standing with their home church to meet with us for communion. There is always an opportunity for people to leave before this begins. During the morning services we try to cater for people of all ages, so after about 20-25 minutes into the service the younger people have the opportunity to go to a different part of the building to take part in crèche, THE GROUP ABOVE CRECHE and the Quest For Christ Sunday(Q4C Sunday) depending on their ages while the adults stay and listen to a talk. (See the Young People section for more info.)
Evening services last about an hour and a quarter and an additional 10 minutes should be added when there is communion.
After most services there are refreshments, tea, coffee, juice and biscuits are all available. This is a good opportunity to catch up with people or get to know new people in the church or to ask the preacher a question about the talk
Acts - The Risen Jesus Builds His Church
The book of Acts outlines how the Risen Jesus builds his church through the witness of his Apostles and by the power of his Spirit. As we see how the Risen Jesus builds his church we'll learn what should characterise our church and our lives as believers.
Luke 12-13 - Living in the Light of Eternity
These two chapters of Luke's life account of Jesus unpack how the reality of eternity should transform how we for the Lord Jesus live in the present.
