We are committed to proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to being faithful witness for Jesus, demonstrated by our daily lives.
BCF supports, initiates or participates in services at boating events at both local and national level, often in cooperation with other churches.
We can often be seen at many events around the system. We may be running a stand, and/or providing fun interactive games and activities for old and young alike. When appropriate, we offer a hospitality boat, where people are welcome to come aboard for a chat, a cuppa, maybe cake and, of course, prayer is alwasy on offer.
For those that want it, we produce and supply a range of literature. This is available for members to use as appropriate, and constantly reviewed and updated.
We work with and alongside other churches, Canal Ministries and the Waterways Chaplains in many outreach projects. Every other year, we all work together to run a specific mission in whichever area God leads us to. These missions are now known as the Boats of Hope.
