Although churches can be open for services during this national lockdown, the leaders of TRBC have decided that we are continuing to remain closed for all services and hirings until further notice. We are continuing to take the advice of the Baptist Union, which you can read below:

"In light of the introduction of national lockdown in England from 5 January and the ongoing ‘alert level 4’ introduced across Wales on 20 December, we strongly encourage churches not to open their buildings for in-person meeting if at all possible.

We recognise that the both UK and Welsh Government guidelines allow churches to remain open during this period. However, given the significant increase in numbers of Covid-19 infections and pressure on the NHS, we advise churches to stand with the wider community in making every effort to limit the spread of the virus.

We would still support churches as they open their buildings to provide vital services to the local community, such as food banks, as has been the case throughout the pandemic.

We know that geographical contexts differ across both England and Wales and we are aware that the decision lies with the local church. Nonetheless we are mindful of the pressure church leaders are under and the greater risk taken by all those involved in hosting open buildings for whom we have a duty of care.

This is a changing situation and we very much hope this will be our advice for only a short period. Resources and sermons for inclusion in online services will continue to be shared through the national and regional team websites.

We stand together in the hope we have in Christ and we are praying for all at this difficult time." 

However, we are still meeting by having our online services. Each service is available to watch at 10:30am on Sunday and will stay up on the website for you to catch up at any time. You can view the services via our website.

We are very aware that some may appreciate pastoral visits, would benefit from a phone conversation or need some help with shopping. If you, or anyone you know might be helped and supported by any of these please do not hesitate to contact us at the church:
