Hi! You found our Website!
Since 1954, the Linwood Bible Chapel has been a place where people can come together to listen to God through the Bible being taught.
Announcement – Future of Linwood Bible Chapel
Following several months of discussions, the leadership teams of the Linwood Bible Chapel and Rutland St Church advise that Linwood Bible Chapel will be combining with Rutland Street Church from January 2015. The final worship service at Linwood Bible Chapel will be Sunday 28 December 2014.
The Canterbury Earthquakes 2010-2011 caused damage to the main chapel building and subsequent engineering examinations have confirmed the building is significantly under the required building code. Attention to these matters have created a distraction from the spiritual work of the assembly. Furthermore, the current declining membership of the assembly did not appear to warrant spending the large sums required to bring the buildings up to 34% of the New Building Standard.
The future of the outreaches currently operating at Linwood Bible Chapel are under discussion.
There have been six decades of worship, service and witness at Linwood Bible Chapel. We hope that a celebration of that witness will be held in early 2015
