Our Meetings

We believe that the pattern established in the church in Jerusalem under the direction of the Apostles should be normative for our congregation today – ‘they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine,’ (Acts 2:42a). Therefore, our pastor seeks to provide sound instruction in the Word of God for the entire congregation in various settings:

Morning Service

Our pastor ordinarily preaches consecutive expository sermons during our morning Lord’s Day worship service. Pastor Cane is our primary preacher, though other men in the congregation also minister to us in this way.

Evening Service

On the second and fourth Sundays in the month, we have an evening service where a different sermon is preached from the morning service. We encourage all God’s people to attend both morning and evening services each Lord’s Day.

On the second Sunday of the month, our evening service has an evangelistic thrust, including the preaching of a simple gospel sermon. We encourage our members to bring non-Christians to sit under the preaching of God’s gospel of grace. Additionally, we joyfully believe that the gospel is meant for believers (see Romans 1:15) and therefore encourage everyone to attend, including families with young children. We enjoy a fellowship meal following this service.

Sunday School/Adult Bible Study

During the school term, the children and teenagers meet after our morning tea to study the Scriptures in their various classes. During this time, the adults have an Adult Bible Class, typically of a topical nature. For more information about BBC’s children’s ministry see our brochure ‘Three Important Questions’.

Bible Fellowship

With the conviction that God speaks to us today through His written Word (cf. Hebrews 3:7ff and Psalm 95:7-11), we meet fortnightly, on a Wednesday evening, to read large sections of God’s Word and discuss their relevance.

School of Theology (SOT)

We believe 2 Timothy 2:2 is a relevant verse for the local church, under the direction of her elders:

“And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” Berean School of Theology is an in-house training program which primarily exists to help equip a group of men who, according to the Lord’s direction and blessing, may have greater usefulness in the Lord’s work in the days ahead. Some of the subjects tackled in SOT may be opened up to the wider Berean congregation – providing benefit in the deepening of their understanding and growth in grace and truth.

Prayer Meeting

We regularly meet in person as a congregation to pray for sister churches and the Berean Church needs. We urge all members and friends to join these important meetings.

Prayer Service – Persecuted Church

Several times a year we use the fifth Sunday evening in the month to engage in a Prayer Service, where we have a special focus on persecuted Christians across the globe. In this special service we hear news, receive preaching, sing and concentrate on praying for their needs.

Berean Ladies

Once a month, on a Thursday morning, a group of Berean Church ladies gather to nurture their relationships in fellowship, care for one another, and pray together. Berean Ladies is conducted within the framework of Titus 2:3-5 (older ladies nurturing younger ladies), as well as supporting the needs of the church in practical ways.

Hymn Sing

A few times throughout the year the Berean congregation engage in a fellowship night in a member’s home to sing hymns of the faith, and to receive God’s Word and hear a testimony from one of our members!
