We have so many ways in which we show God's love and share His message locally and globally. Here is some more information on how we do it.
We support, co-ordinate and lead community based action in Leeds. We do this in various ways and partner with other organisations to see His Kingdom come.
Our parent/carer and baby/toddler group for all children 0-4 years which runs during term time only. Splashtime gives a brilliant opportunity to meet new families, make new friends, and have lots of fun with your child.
Our community hub where we befriend people in the local area who may be experiencing feelings of loneliness or social isolation, or who may be struggling through life and need some support.
We partner with Zarach who provide food for households in our locality that may be struggling financially.
We want to welcome people to Leeds who have fled their homes in search of safety.
We want to see accountable communities started that are centred on the Gospel, and have an intentional mission towards a particular area in obedience to the Great Commission.
We also partner with many amazing organisations in Leeds who share the same desires as we do to see Leeds increasingly transformed. Click below for more information.

Hi, we are Wolfgang and Heike Tiedeck.
Heike has been a member of BCC since 1994. She came to Leeds as a student and got involved with the then Bridge Street Church. Wolfgang came into the picture after our marriage in 1995. We went to the north of Ghana with WEC International where we served in the theological training of lay leaders in the Evangelical Church of Ghana.
Wolfgang is a theologian, and Heike holds a diploma in nursing and a master’s degree in Intercultural Studies. We have one son, Dominik, who called himself a ‘Ghanaian’ when – after our return from Ghana - he entered the German schooling system at the age of 7!
In 2007, we became staff members of Cornerstone, a Bible college for mission training in the Netherlands. Our motivation is to help the next generation of missionaries and cross-cultural workers to be well-prepared to fulfil God’s calling.
Wolfgang resources staff, students and the college in his position as a librarian and has taught various courses. Heike started work there as a bookkeeper and mentor and, after finishing her master’s degree, eventually joined the teaching staff. Since 2016 she has been a guest lecturer at Cornerstone and at another German Bible college. She teaches German to immigrants and English at an adult education centre and in a prison. She gives seminars about understanding cultures and has written a book about this, Learning to Understand Cultures: An Introduction to Intercultural Encounters, which a member of BCC has translated.
While Cornerstone is in the Netherlands, we live in Germany (it’s only a 20-minute-journey!). We have been actively sharing God’s word in our own and the neighbouring community through preaching, an adult Bible study and an English church service. It is our desire not only to increase the Biblical knowledge of people, but to see them following Christ.
During the Corona pandemic Wolfgang fell ill with Covid-19 and was seriously ill. By God’s grace, with the support of the prayers of many, and thanks to a good medical team, he recovered and is now able to continue to proclaim what the Lord has done.
HIS Name in Highest Honour!
Spread the Word, India
