NWBA Online Service - Sunday 25th July
While many churches remain closed, or can only accommodate limited numbers, we will continue to offer online services through to 1st August. You can join us for Sunday 25th July through this link. We will then be offering a shorter online gathering which we are calling NWBA Sunday Sermon

Online Resources from NWBA
As we have continued to offer online services for those who need them, we are also pleased to make available resources from those services for use in your own situation. This link will take you to a list of sermons, reflections and short devotionals - they are freely available for anyone who would find them useful for their own services. We can also provide these in download form if required.

Keep Praying

Although our scheduled Season of Prayer has now run its course, please continue to pray for one another as local churches and mission communities as we navigate ongoing uncertainties. NWBA is a community of around 160 local churches and mission initiatives, including chaplaincies, mission communities and new expressions of church. We encourage everyone to pray regularly for each other.

By following the link below, you can access the various weekly prayer schedules or look up any church that has responded to our invitation to be part of this initiative. Please remember too that our 'Sharing the Story' link offers you the chance to find out something about the work of one of our churches each week. If you are not included but would like to offer your prayer requests, please get in touch with us.

Our nations and our world continue to face significant disruption and challenge. As communities of God's people, we are not exempt from that. As we begin to find our way forward, it is vital that we do so prayerfully, seeking to support one another in our journey together.
