Welcome to the website for the West Craven Fellowship.  For us church is not just about Sunday, but flows out into the whole of life.  We aim to live out our faith in our homes, schools, work places - wherever we are.  Through the week we also offer a kaleidoscope of activities to bring people together and build community, such as coffee mornings, parent and toddler groups, home groups, Tuesday Club for children, social events and so on. See our 'Whats On' page



“Life is a rollercoaster”, stated a boyband in one their hit songs. It seems to me that life at WCBF could echo those words both collectively and for some individually.

The immense joy at the call of Stephen Keyworth as next minister to the sad news of him being struck down with illness.

The pleasing news of Julie Bryan being accepted for ministerial training.

Others have suffered illness, hospitalisation, health tests and bereavement.

The happy news of engagement and wedding plans.

Yet as we have shared all these various emotions, for me the constancy of the presence of God has enabled us to see beyond the immediate into a future he has prepared for each one of us and the Fellowship as a whole. I do keep come back to the familiar words of the prophet, Jeremiah,

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.”

Let’s keep our faith and hope for the future with the God who is always with us.
