Email Communication

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

As a church, we regular send important emails to those who are a part of our ministry. There are a number of separate lists that we have for various channels of information. Below you can read about and subscribe to these email lists. (Please note that you will need to subscribe separately to each individual list.)

In addition to the lists below, there is a separate list for those who are formal members of the church. If you are a church member but are not on this list, you can email church@bbcmail.co.za and ask to be added. (If you receive the weekly prayer matters email based on Sunday night’s prayer meeting, it means you are on the list. If not, ask to be added.) This list is exclusively for church members.

General Announcements

This is a list for our regular weekly roundup (a summary of announcements and Lord’s Day ministry duties), which is sent out every Friday for the coming Lord’s Day and the week beyond. Additionally, emails containing information of general interest to the church are periodically sent to this list.

Grace Groups Homework

Grace Groups is the name given to our midweek small group meetings, which take place in home of church members around the city on different nights of the week. The Grace Groups all discuss the same material, which is essentially a set of questions that has been produced to provoke further discussion regarding the Sunday morning sermon. Homework questions are emailed to this list on Monday morning each week.

Family Bible Hour Notes

Family Bible Hour is our all-aged Sunday school ministries. Children in Grade 7 and younger are taken to Sunday school classes, where they make their way through material provided by Children Desiring God. Adults divide into different classes to study books of the Bible or general theology together. To prepare adults for the discussion, we send out summary notes during the week of what will be discussed on Sunday.

You can get these notes via email by subscribing here.

Pastors’ Pen

Periodically, articles written by the pastors of the church are published to the church website. These brief articles are designed to help church members think about matters relating to church life or general Christian living and are rarely doctrinally heavy. They appear on the website and are linked via the normal social media channels, but you can also receive these articles by email.

Receive emails directly in your inbox by subscribing here.

Newsletters

Periodically, newsletters received from missionaries, ministers, sister churches and ministries within the church are sent to those who wish to remain informed. The newsletters list is a catch-all list, which includes emails received from ministries outside and ministries inside the church.

To receive these newsletters via email, subscribe here.

Membership

Emails are periodically sent to the membership of BBC with important, members-only information. If you are a member of BBC and do not receive membership emails (e.g. the weekly prayer items every Monday morning), you can sign up below. Note: If you sign up here but are NOT a member of the church, we will remove your email address from this list.
