Welcome to BVC
We are a new church in launched in 2015. We want to help people find and follow Jesus, be empowered by the Holy Spirit, connect and worship God together. We seek to extend compassion, as we live on a mission to serve our communities and to show and tell thousands about the love and power of God .
Simply put: We want to build a community that will live the way that Jesus did and together Bring Life to Balham and Beyond.
We’d love to meet you and your family this weekend!
Every Sunday at 10.30am
The URC Middle Hall, 53 Rowfant Rd, Balham, SW17 7AP
What to Expect
We have a relaxed informal feel to our services. We serve fresh coffee, tea and pastries from 10.30am and make the most of this time catching up and getting to know new people. We begin with a time of singing led by our band, followed by some stories, notices and a short break, after which there is a talk from the Bible and a time for prayer before we finish at around 12.15pm. Children and young people are especially welcome, and we run programmes for both groups.
After the Service
After the service, please make your way over to the Information Desk, where you can chat to some of our team grab a free Vineyard Worship CD, ask any questions you might have and discover other helpful information. You’ll also have time to grab another drink and any food that’s left over.
Where the Miracles begin
Compassion is a high value for us. It is our belief that the church should be at the forefront of tackling the root causes of poverty and demonstrating care to the poor and vulnerable in our community. We are inviting people to join us as we seek to demonstrate God’s love in as many different ways.
“BVC exists NOT to be the best church IN the community, but to be the best church FOR our community. We are inviting people to join us in Bringing LIFE to Balham and Beyond.”
Steve and Viv Bateman, Lead Pastors of BVC
