What is transformation?
What might transformation look like?
These two key questions have provided the basis for most of the content of this site, and all that we do.
We hope that you will see through its pages that God is transforming life for the better in many places in Bexley, and that churches, and Transform Bexley Borough which is made up of churches and people in them, want to be a part of it.
We believe in a God who is both powerful and compassionate, who loves his people right across the world, and to the depths of our being, and He wants to transform our lives on a daily basis.
Transform Bexley Borough: Sharing God’s love for the community by uniting churches across Bexley Borough in prayer and action, and working in partnership with others.
What’s New (19th Nov 17)
Bexley Winter Night Shelter now has all 7 venues (one each night of the week) and will open from Wed 3rd January to Sun 25th March 2018. This will be the second year of the shelters. To enrol on the team, you need to attend the last of three preparation and enrolment meetings on Saturday 25th November 2-5pm at Welling Baptist Church, Axminster Crescent DA19 1HF. You may volunteer for an early evening (7.00–10.30pm), overnight (10.00pm–6.30am) or early morning (6.00-8.30am) shift on any day of the week. If you are planning to attend this session, it will be most helpful to let Melvyn French (project co-ordinator) know. See here for the team information flyer.
To invite a client to attend the night shelter, you can use the flyer which will be sent to the churches and other signposting organisations (e.g. Bexley Council, Citizens Advice Bureau) at the very beginning of January, and posted on this site. Each potential guest will go through an interview process with Cornerstone in Bexleyheath to see how best they can be helped.
Cornerstone recovery through Christ (07434 733507) is now running 3 evenings a week: Sundays and Tuesdays at Trinity Baptist Church, Bexleyheath Broadway DA6 7AY and on Thursdays at Albany Park Baptist Church, Stansted Crescent, Bexley DA5 3JB, all 7-9.30pm. On Sundays, they also run Alpha and Freedom in Christ courses annually.
Cornerstone is a friendly and safe meeting place. It offers everyone a safe space to be themselves, within an encouraging spiritual community of recovering people…<see more>
Bexley Police Community Christmas Carol Concert will take place on Monday 4th December 2017 at 7.30pm at Trinity Baptist Church, Bexleyheath Broadway DA6 7AY. You will find the invitation here. All in Bexley are invited. This is not a ticketed event, but you will need to arrive early to avoid disappointment. The Metropolitan Police Choir (no longer male only) will be joining us.
24-7 Prayer Bexley is a new project that will be starting sometime in the New Year 2018. There are some churches which already pray in this way, and this is a way of using that to encourage others of the Borough’s Churches to start to create a 24 hour 7 day a week prayer chain, continuously praying round the year. If you attend a church or Christian fellowship and you or your church (or maybe your denominational group or your churches together group) might be interested in taking part, please have a look at https://www.facebook.com/247BexleyPrayerChain/ where you can also respond to take part or consider it. If you’ve never seen or taken part in 24hour prayer before, take a look here. If you prefer, please register your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Erith and Thamesmead Debt Centre has appointed a new Centre Manager, based at Belvedere Baptist Church.
