Brickworks isn't just about church. We believe people need to be part of healthy 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 and 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! Some 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 directly with children, youth or vulnerable adults are checked with the national Disclosure and Barring Service.
