What's On

Our Sunday meetings resumed on 5th September and now take place fortnightly from 10:30am to 12 noon.

Whilst we’re unable to offer a Sunday School at the moment, everyone is welcome to join our family-friendly service each fortnight – we sing, someone speaks (sometimes!) as well as other more creative approaches to meeting together. See below for a flavour of what’s going on!

For a number of years now, the people of BCLC Church have been serving our community by providing a food locker.

During lockdown, we have re-doubled our efforts and made fortnightly deliveries of food parcels to those in need.

Referrals for help come via social care professionals, BAVO or a school.  If you’d like to know more, just email us at familiesteam@mybclc.org or click – here.

Life groups are small groups of people who meet in homes around the Bridgend area – they are very informal, focus on relationship and are the heart of BCLC Church life. They are an ideal opportunity to connect with others, build meaningful friendships and grow spiritually.

We currently have 3 active groups:

Gail Thomas Cefn Cribwr

Gail has served BCLC for over 60 years, as her father did before her. She and her late husband, Mal, led the vision that resulted in the building of our current facility – a great resource for the church and community.

Gail continues to serve tirelessly as a life group leader and church treasurer, as well as being the pastoral ‘heart’ of the church.

Debbie and Glyn Udraufski – Bridgend (Litchard)

Both extremely down to earth people, Debbie and Glyn are a hardworking committed family unit, who are fun loving and care deeply about your personal journey.
As as a working professional, Debbie is used to dealing with people, is a team player, and has a real interest in seeing everyone become their best self.
Glyn is an avid Liverpool supporter and has played an active part in our men’s fellowship. Both Debbie and Glyn will be happy to welcome you.

Jonny & Karen Matthew – Pen-y-Fai

Jonny & Karen are both social care professionals who have lived in Bridgend for the last 5 years and joined BCLC Church in 2017. Jonny now heads up the leadership team (but the team do LOTS of the work!). They are both passionate about serving people and working together to live the ‘Jesus Life’ in modern-day Wales. They live in Pen-y-Fai with Dot, the Jack Russell terrier and open their home for an informal evening of discussion, prayer and coffee once a fortnight on a Wednesday.

Coronavirus Update No.5 – 22 October 2021.

Despite the ongoing challenges of COVID-19 Sunday meetings have resumed at BCLC and take place fortnightly at 10:20am to 12 noon.
 

BCLC meets fortnightly on a Sunday & you are welcome to join us!

 
In order to keep things as safe as possible, we have in place the following measures:
 
    • Names, arrival time and contact details are taken of everyone attending – for track-n-trace purposes
    • Masks are worn whilst in the church building
    • A one-way system is in operation to control the flow of people as much as possible
    • Chairs and other equipment used are cleaned following each meeting
We are sadly unable to provide a Sunday School at the current time, but we encourage families to attend together, as children are at least as welcome as grown ups!
 
For a calendar of dates we we’re meeting, please see the ‘Sundays’ tab on this page.
 
We are continuing to serve the community through our Food Locker and the Uniform Swap Shop. If you would like help with either of these, or would like to volunteer to help in this work, please email us at familiesteam@myBCLC.org
 
We wish you all well in this difficult time and pray God’s richest blessing on you and your family.

With love, the members & leadership of BCLC Church, Cefn Cribwr.

The Gym has now been closed down permanently & the equipment removed.

THANKS to everyone who used the gym; as a church, we were unable to continue to staff and service it going forward, so took the decision to close it permanently. We hope our regular users are able to find an alternative soon.

Wishing you well!

Cheers, BCLC Church Leadership Team
