Join us on Sunday
10.30am at Chestnut Grove Academy
We are a lively Bible-centred Anglican church, meeting just around the corner from Balham tube station. As a church family we seek to love and follow Jesus Christ, welcoming people from all walks of life and all parts of the world. We believe that in the Bible God speaks a message of hope and forgiveness that is both life giving and life changing. This message is for us, for Balham and for the world. Come and join us!
Watch Our Service Live
From 10:30am on Sunday Mornings
We are having to do Church a little differently at the moment due to Covid19, so a small team will be live-streaming our Sunday service from the school or the church office. As usual, we will be singing, praying, confessing, reading and preaching God’s word – all of which you can follow along with at home. Do Join us on Sundays!
FRoM God’s Word
Everything we do is taken from our desire to put God's word into action. We hear the Spirit speak as the Bible is preached on Sundays and studied in small groups throughout the week. All our talks are posted online and are also available as a podcast.
Christianity is collective. It’s not meant to be a lone crusade. We need one another for encouragement, support and accountability. And so aim to be a church that loves God’s people sacrificially by offering practical service to anyone among us in need, whether new mums needing meals, lonely or sick people needing a visit or the discouraged needing reassurance.
For City Workers
A large proportion of our church family work in the city, and spend more time there than in the Balham area. It can be easier for Christians to meet up to encourage one another over lunch and coffee breaks in the city, rather than where they live, which could easily intrude on precious time with family. Our staff team spend many afternoons in the city meeting up with individuals to read the Bible one-to-one and pray, so that they then might in turn be equipped to disciple others in a similar way.
We love students at CCB, and encourage them to live wholeheartedly for Jesus Christ at university. Balham is close to St George’s University so we have a number of medical students who are part of CCB. Our philosophy is to fully integrate students into the life of the church family, whilst providing specific opportunities for them to be encouraged in their unique environment.
For People with questions
Almost every Sunday we have people joining us looking in on Christian things, often with big questions about life. Some prefer to just sit at the back and listen, whilst others prefer to engage with loads of questions - whichever you are, you are most welcome! Our services are designed to be friendly, informal and accessible - you don’t need to know anything to join us.
