Psalm on the Farm Sunday 6th June: Cancelled.

Although there has been a significant relaxation in restrictions in wider society, notably being able to meet as two households indoors and in groups of up to 30 outdoors, there are no changes relevant to church included in the most recent changes. Notably the restriction on meeting off church premises has not been lifted as was hoped

Thus, in light of recent Government Covid guidelines and the updated Baptist Union advice, we will not be holding Psalm on the Farm on the 6th June. The Leadership Team know this is desperately disappointing and have not taken the decision lightly. Safety is of course important and Tim will keep us updated on our roadmap towards the end of restrictions.

Please note that the planned Youth activities can go ahead. Contact Dan Ovens in you have any queries.

Message from Rhiannon: Children’s Activities

[Our children] walk past the church and say ‘There’s our old church’….

As restrictions continue to ease, the church leadership are very aware that adults have the choice of coming to Priory Street or, shortly, Rudloe Cafe on Sundays but that is not so easy for our younger children.

Please access the link here to read the message from Rhiannon including exciting plans to provide an opportunity  for children to access in person meetings at church.

Do lift up these plans and events and especially our youngest members in your prayers. For them, the last 14 months represents a significant chunk of their young lives.

If you would like to get involved in the children’s work or have any queries, do contact Rhiannon.

Youth Matters

Incredible youth plans that you most definitely don’t want to miss hearing about so you can commit the young people of our church & community to God in prayer. 

  1. Youth Study Groups
  2. Youth Away Day:  After the Church on the Farm (6th June),
  3. Summer Camp: We are currently exploring two opportunities… 
  4. New Horizons:
    1. We are currently trying to organise a gathering for those finishing sixth form or college to give them a good send off before they explore new horizons.
    2. Two of our young leaders are currently making applications for an AIM Community Outreach Week – Reaching out from a church in the midlands situated in a community of people from a North African background.
    3. Year 6s face a big few months as they finish off in primary school & transition to secondary school as well as being eligible to tap into youth ministry. Dan is hoping to meet with the year 6s of Corsham Primary, by taking part in the schools Careers Week – explaining something of what he does, why & who can come. This presents opportunities to raise the profile of youth ministry. 
  5. Baptism Classes: We are about to begin some baptism classes to help a couple young people think through baptism. 
  6. Detached Youth Work: With schools work & outreach into the community campus still problematic, we are exploring possibilities around outreach to young people in Corsham. We’re looking at clothing & branding that will identify us – as we meet with young people where they are at & build ministry in the margins to young people unconnected with church life.

For more details, please Dan’s full article on the website which includes a list of points for prayer

Easter Thank Offering: Message from the Treasurer

Thank you church for your generous support for the Easter Thank Offering.

A total of £2558 has been raised to support the work of our mission partners (Compassion, International Teams Austria (The Oasis Centre) & Tearfund) who would normally have benefitted from the Harvest and Christmas Service offerings.  This will boost our Restricted Mission Fund to around £4575 by the end of April 2021.
