What's 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.

If you would like help with food, email us at familiesteam@mybclc.org or click – here.
