We are so pleased that you are visiting our web site, but to really get to know St.B’s you need to come along and pay us a visit. We are an Evangelical church that are seeking to be open and to move in the power of the Holy Spirit. We have a newly extended church building which we have been enjoying since Sept 2010. It is a building that is open to a number of community activities, and we are praying for more opportunities to serve the people of Bearwood.
Sung worship and the preaching of God’s word are priorities for us, and we regularly offer prayer ministry for those who would like it.
Do come and see us and join us as we worship our Mighty God.
For full information on up coming services and any of our church groups please check our Events and news pages,

Music is a great way to speak to us but also enable us to speak and worship God, so each month we choose a song to enable us to do just that.
This month the song is: Jesus, Strong and Kind (feat. Colin Buchanan)
The sound of a church singing has preceded almost every great revival in church history. The church is God’s witness and representative on earth. Is there any wonder that a tremendous power comes about when the representative voice of God in the earth is singing. here is another great song from the worship ensemble City Alight.
All Sunday services start at 10:30am with refreshments served afterwards
Prayer, Praise and Preach
Centred on Sung worship, testimony and the preaching of the Bible
