You Are Very Welcome
We are a living, loving, learning community with Jesus at the heart. OLLBC aspires to be a place that enables everyone in the community to engage with God’s heart and experience full life. Our desire is for everyone to thrive, to always feel welcomed, to find healing, to experience freedom, and to continue to learn.
We pride ourselves on being a fun, supportive, and family church with people from all ages of the community coming together to share God's love. We strive to be a pillar of support and beacon of light in our community and we welcome you into our family with open arms.
We do things a little differently at Old Lodge Lane. We decided to host our worship services on Thursday evenings at 7 pm. The motivation of our alternative-style of the gathering is that it does not carry the pressure to include everything that would be expected on a Sunday – worship, prayer, sermon, communion. There is the freedom to experiment on some of the ideas and traditions of the diverse community we serve.
Praise His Name
At Old Lodge Lane all our mission is dedicated to supporting our community. We host many community events, support those in need, help share the talent of our congregation and we strive to bring together the community in fellowship, discipleship, and ministry. The flagship of our community support is our food stop initiative. Our Food Stop project provides around £20 of groceries for only £3.50 for anyone who is on benefits, has been furloughed or laid off from their job as a result of the pandemic.
At Old Lodge Lane Church we want our teaching and preaching to be heard and digested by as many people as possible and at a pace that suits the individual. We noticed that our services can often be too full of songs, prayers, sermons, giving little time for each - This is why we decided to put our teaching into a weekly podcast instead. Feel free to listen online or download offline so you can listen any where. If you enjoy a sermon then please share it and spread the good word.
