The Apostolic Church celebrated its 100th Anniversary in 2016.

Here are some highlights from BOCF...

The Noise Our last Noise event took place on Bank Holiday Monday, 5th May 2014. We celebrated our 10th Anniversary with a special Funday. Head over to The Noise page for more details.
The 2013 event took place over the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May. We continued to develop the "alley garden" and as in previous years, we helped residents with their gardens. On Monday 27th, we held the Funday with 2 bouncy castles, a free BBQ, Kidz Klub activities, a cake stall and a jumble sale. For information on previous years, please head over to the Noise page.

A BRIEF HISTORY. Back in 2004, an event called “Soul in the City” was held in various centres throughout the London area. For two weeks we hosted a team of volunteers, as youth volunteers came from all over the UK to clean up large areas of Burnt Oak. Some from our congregation joined them, working with other local churches and in partnership with Barnet Council and the Metropolitan Police. We decided to continue this effort the following year and the "Noise" was born. Since then, each May Bank Holiday weekend, the work continues with local volunteers getting involved. We have strong relationships with the Council, the Police and with residents in the area. This has enabled us to work together to build a better community to live in. Our aim as a church is to practically show the love of God by providing social action weekends and free fun-days for the residents to enjoy. We have had fantastic support from Barnet Homes, Burnt Oak Safer Neighbourhood Team and other local organisations and churches. Tesco, our local supermarket, has also generously provided packed lunches for the volunteers.

Christmas hampers  
From 2011, we have joined together with other churches at "Jesus House" to pack Christmas hampers, ready for delivery to the local community.

Good Friday, 2013  
On 29th March 2013, we welcomed ex-professional footballer, Linvoy Primus, to BOCF. After a buffet meal, Linvoy shared his journey of faith with us. A good crowd attended and listened intently as Linvoy explained how God became real to him and changed his life around. Thanks to everyone who attended and for all the food!
Another presentation can be heard here from Linvoy's website.

Good Friday, 2012  
Lunch with a Difference We once again welcomed Paul Jones and Fiona Hendley to BOCF. When they first came in December 2010, the snow and icy roads in Burnt Oak prevented many of us from attending. However, this time a large crowd attended and we enjoyed a wonderful evening of testimony and song as Paul and Fiona shared their life stories with us. Thanks to everyone who brought food and refreshments.
Palm Sunday, 2012 - Walk of Witness  


On 1st April 2012, the Edgware group of churches once again had a "Walk of witness" through the streets of Edgware, culminating in a time of praise and worship in the the Broadwalk shopping centre carpark. Can't see the video? Please click here.
