We are a church made up of ordinary local people trying to live and love like Jesus. We’re a clan sharing life together in real and meaningful ways and we welcome anyone who wants to join us.
“...a group of people united by actual or perceived kinship and descent. Even if lineage details are unknown, clan members may be organized around a founding member.”

We believe that church includes people of all ages. If you're under 18, you're not just the 'church of tomorrow', you're an important part of the church right now! There are some great ways to get involved like our Friday Night groups (during term time only).
Fridays* 7pm - 8:15pm (*Term Time only). Great fun for anyone in school years 1-6 including games, activities, crafts and loads much. The first session is FREE (usual weekly price 50p). If you want more information get in touch. And don’t forget to check our Facebook page for all the up-to-the-minute details.
Fridays* 7pm - 8:15pm (*Term Time only). If you’re in school years 7-9 and want somewhere to chill out with friends, play games and sports and even do a bit of craft then 11up is for you. The first session is FREE (usual weekly price 50p) and you can check out all the latest up-to-the-minute details on our Facebook page. Get in touch if you have any questions or want to know more.
Fridays* 8:30pm - 10pm (*Term Time only) Xtreme is for anyone in school years 10 or 11 or at college. A space to play games and sports, do crafts and talk about issues relevant to your life (all fuelled by copious amounts of toast!). New members are always welcome; all we ask is that you respect our Code of Conduct so everyone can enjoy the evening. Find us on Facebook for more information. The first session is FREE (usual weekly price 50p).
On the last Sunday of each month we offer a different kind of service for anyone 13+. This exciting event starts at 7pm and often involves games, interactive reflections, a short talk and a chance to sing together. All our Youth and Children’s work is run by a team of experienced leaders who have all completed Child Protection training and are DBS checked. A copy of our Child Protection Policy is available upon request. We also have a Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults policy.
Our Pastors and The Leadership Team
Jimmy and Kathryn Orr
Jimmy and Kathryn became the Pastors of LPBC in early 2014.
They met whilst studying Theology at Spurgeon’s College and married in 2010.
Kathryn can either be found in the garden – growing her own vegetables and herbs – or in the kitchen cooking and baking. She rarely says no to a cup of tea and chat and loves sharing life stories.
Kathryn will be on Maternity Leave from September 2015.
Jimmy loves music – listening, singing, playing various instruments, writing songs. He likes peace and quiet too and enjoys reading and writing (you can read his blog at jimmyjamesorr.com.) He is football mad and is an Arsenal fan.

The Second Sunday of the month has it's own distinct rhythm. Three different types of gatherings form a monthly rhythm - one month a Church Business Meeting, the following month The Forum, the month after that a Prayer Gathering - with each event starting at 7pm on the Second Sunday of the month.
