Brickworks isn't just about church or just about Sundays. We believe people need to be part of a community. What makes community?
It's about people knowing each other - knowing faces, knowing names, chatting in the street... having fun together and helping each other.
Brickworks aims to grow a range of community stuff, from groups meeting regularly to one-off events for everyone to networks for helping each other. Some of these are already happening, some are planned, some are dreams, and some are your ideas that we don't know about yet! A few of them are joint with Lye Church.

We take the protection and safety of children and vulnerable adults very seriously. All Volunteers in the church who work with children, youth or vulnerable adults are checked with the national Disclosure and Barring Service.
