Coming together is incredibly important to us at WBC. That might look like being part of a smaller gathering, attending a larger service, or joining us as we get together online. Keep reading to find out more...
At the moment, our Church calendar includes time spent all together and time spent in smaller gatherings. Two Sundays a month (the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month) are given to these smaller gatherings. This means we are released to gather in that smaller way or to do something missional with the time.
These smaller gatherings (there are 5 at the moment) are called 'Grow', 'Gatherers', 'Bethel', 'Herding Cats' and '[tbd]'. They meet up in separate places at different times and occasionally on different days of the week. This is a great opportunity for us to talk and learn about God in smaller, more supportive settings so we can walk together as we explore faith.

Meeting at Knights Templar
Every 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, the whole church comes together at 10.30am at Knights Templar School. This is an opportunity for us spend time with God, join in sung worship and catch up with people we don't see in our smaller gatherings. Plus, our worship band isn't too bad!
We try to keep things informal and welcoming. Sometimes we sit in rows and sometimes around tables. We look for ways to pray together that hold the attention, sing songs that are older as well as newer, read the bible to each other, find excuses to have a bit of fun and provide an opportunity to give financially as part of how we worship God. We cherish a no-pressure environment.
We all get together on a 5th Sunday, too - to share communion at lunch time (usually gathering at 11.30am). Where we get together for this can vary. But the information can always be found on our Facebook page.
Weekly Online Teaching
Every Sunday evening, we also have the opportunity to come together online. Each episode of our weekly teaching series is live on our YouTube channel at 6pm on a Sunday - as a premier. And, if you can't make it to join us at the time, you can catch up whenever is best for you in the week! Each teaching tends to be about 20 minutes long, with questions added at the end to help with thinking through what we do with that teaching.
