Nativity Audio Book by Jo Sheringham

There’s a lot of great material available to read at this time of year, and yet it is possibly the time of year when we are busiest of all. So here is something you can listen to instead: twelve voices from the Nativity story based on the first two chapters of Matthew and Luke, including… singing and silence, maps and mystery, plans and plots, flights and frights, a birth and a death, as well as angels, dreams and prophecies.

Written for grown-ups rather than children, each audible episode is about 20 minutes long. These are perfect for when you are up to your elbows in sprouts or curling the ribbon on your perfectly wrapped presents or ironing those creases into your festive socks…

Starting on the 1st of December a new episode will be released every other day in the run-up to Christmas on our YouTube channel.

Corsham Baptist Church will soon be 200 years old

Many Baptist churches have a long history and Corsham Baptist Church is, in many ways typical of many of them. Started around 1823 by a small group of believers meeting in a cottage. Henry Webley led the church for many years, initiated the construction of the present chapel building in Corsham, then went on to construct six more in the various villages around about.

Paul Garcia has written a new book chronicling the history of the church through the 21 pastors down the years, along with details of the many rises and falls of the church and its chapels. Included too are stories of the dead from two World wars, ‘special people’ who made an impact over the two centuries, the various ministries in which the church is involved currently and memories of some of the older folk.

The book includes contributions by Rev. Eddie Larkman, who also wrote a Foreword, Rev. Marc Owen from the 1980s, Sheila Woolford and many others.

The book is now on sale for £8.99 directly from the author via email or at the back of the Church.

All profits including any extra donations will go for relief of the Persecuted Church via Open Doors
