New to BLCChurch? Whether it's your first time with us, you're already part of the family, or anywhere inbetween - a very warm welcome.
If you're not familiar with us, or you'd like to find out a bit more about who we are and what we do, then you're in the right place. There's loads of information below about our beliefs, what our Sunday mornings look like, and what we get up to during the week. So take your time, and engage with us.
If you'd like any more information about anything you read on this page, then please feel free to connect with us - there are several ways to do that, and you can find out how by clicking here.
Our Sunday morning service is lively, contemporary, and family friendly.
From 10.30am we have a flexible time of modern worship lead by our worship team (who you may have seen at other events around Bromley from time to time), and helped along by anyone in the room who wishes to pray out or share a word.
After that we have separate times of worship and teaching for our adults, children and young people - including a creche facility with a live audio feed from the main hall for those with young children who don't want to miss out on the teaching.
At around 12pm, or shortly afterwards, we all come back together for a chance to have a catch-up with friends, or discuss what we have learned, over tea and coffee. Occasionally we also stay for a shared lunch after the service, or even go for a picnic if the weather is nice enough.
We run regular events for all ages throughout the week. For one-off special events, be sure to check our Facebook page regularly.
We have various activities for children and young people which run during term-time.
'Young Adventurers' is a fun, imaginative and exciting club between 4.30-6pm on Tuesday nights (during term time). The adventure starts at The Castle, continuing on a journey to new locations on our map.
We explore this map through music, creativity and games and discover new things. There are new projects and activities every term, with a new theme and imaginative location.
The weekly entrance fee is just £1, so come along and discover this adventure for yourselves!

We also have events for the whole family, whatever the ages, which run during term-time.
Our mother's and toddler's group New Beginnings meets every Wednesday during term-time at 9.30am.
Run by the lovely people who have helped to bring up many of those now leading our church, New Beginnings is a great social time for parents and babies alike.
Our Community Cafe - The Brook Cafe is open from 10 until 3 every Thursday during term time. It's a great place to unwind, with hot food and drinks available at reasonable prices, and an unsupervised play area for kids.
Open House is an opportunity for adults of all ages to get together on Fridays from 10.30am until 2pm. It's a great opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones, with lunch being served at 12.30, followed by a variety of entertainments, including guest speakers, quizzes, musicians, films and occasionally outings.
Shedless Men is a great oppertunity for the guys in our community to get together and do some blokey stuff!
Every Saturday we get together at Brook Lane Community Gardens and put our hands and minds to work, building things to be used in the garden. We have even built a full-size stable for our Christmas Carol Service, which has now been re-purposed by the garden team!
You don't need any sort of skills or tools to take part, so come along and join in.
For more information, then please get in touch!
We believe that it is important not to just meet on Sunday mornings, but during the week as well. We encourage all of our members to join one of our several home groups which meet at different locations and different times during the week. These groups are a great opportunity for fellowship, friendship, encouragement, Bible study, prayer and worship.
If you are interested in joining a home group then please get in touch.
Our week begins with an early morning prayer meeting on Mondays at 6.30am. We also have another early morning meeting at the same time on Fridays.
For those who can't quite make it that early in the morning, there is also an intercessory prayer meeting at 7.30pm on Mondays.
On the first Thursday of every month, we meet at 7.45pm for a time of prayer and worship, where we encourage our whole church to attend.
Occasionally we meet up for one-off prayer events as a part of a larger group of churches. Details of these meetings are usually announced via our email bulletin, on Sunday mornings, or via our Facebook Page.
