Living Our Beliefs – Church
Each day, Brethren meet in purpose built churches, which are used only for Christian worship and not for secular or other activities.
Our meetings are based on Holy Scripture. Selected scriptures from the Bible provide the subject for mutually conversational Bible readings, gospel sermons and addresses based on texts of Scripture. We open and close our meetings with a prayer and the collective singing of a hymn.
Sunday (Lords day) is regarded as a special day, commencing with the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion) at 6am at local churches and thereafter the day is filled with Bible readings and preaching’s of the Gospel and the Word of God. We also entertain Brethren in our homes for lunches and evening meals.
All Brethren Gospel Halls are separate freehold premises. There are standard designs for all new church halls worldwide and we comply with local government requirements and local community considerations and concerns. Public interaction events are held at all UK Brethren gospel halls, where a free lunch is available to all who visit, as well as free Bibles and Gospel literature. Brethren would also proclaim the Glad Tidings on the streets in the communities they live, on a regular basis.
Our churches are approved by local government as places of worship. Much care and expense is incurred to ensure that sufficient off street parking is provided and that the environment is cared for, respected and protected.
This short documentary gives a brief insight into church life, and also some very interesting opinions of well-known and respected non brethren who have visited PBCC gospel halls and have had to do with the Brethren. We are sure you will find it both interesting and inspiring.
