This year will be different in yet another way. Rather than gathering in town the local churches have come together to bring you a service of readings and carols for you to enjoy (and join in with) from home.
On the morning of Sunday 20th December, we are going to be hosting a very 2020 style Nativity service over Zoom – we’re not going to let a piddly thing like a worldwide pandemic spoil our fun this Christmas! Details for logging in and times will be announced nearer the time, but for now there’s a few things you need to know…
Everyone (and I mean everyone) from any service is very welcome
Everyone (and I mean everyone) should dress up in some kind of Christmassy or Nativity-esque way – use your imagination
And we need a little acting help (four households and one single)
We’d like volunteer households to take part mostly, kids and adults together. There are no lines to learn, just be prepared for some spontaneous miming! And if you are a single person, or the rest of your family are boring spoilsports, there is a role for a single person too.
Please get in touch with Matt G from the 9.15 service (address in the directory or use the contact form).
If you have run out of Veggie Tales and just need to get out and run and maybe even stomp in puddles then read on.
Coming to the streets of Corsham this year is a very special adventure. Follow the clues, collect the stickers, arrive at Bethlehem.
On Saturday 19th December between the hours of 16:00-19:00. Start work on your costume today!
Collect your map and stickers from outside Corsham Baptist Church on Priory Street at 3pm on Monday 14th, Thursday 17th or on the day itself. Or download a map right now.
The small print
Families will have strict guidelines to follow which include Covid safety regulations and the route is designed so that you can start and end at any point therefore avoiding gatherings at any one area.
Looking for something to encourage and build you up as we move into the Advent season? Starting on December 1st, Church on the Green are putting an online advent calendar on our website (https://churchonthegreen.online) including scripture and a short devotional video to bless you each day. All welcome! For more information, watch the trailer below.
Today marks our first attempt at online church. Already I have personally had a fabulous amount of messages with ideas and initiatives to keep in touch with one another and pull our church family together so thank you everyone for all you’re doing. Keep doing it and especially keep an eye out for anyone we might be missing.
So for today I’d just like to signpost a few things:
Rob is preaching at 10am, you can go here to watch the countdown or click on ‘Sermons‘ in the menu above after 10am. There are paper copies available too. If you – or someone you know – would like one and have not received it yet, please use the form below.
Rhiannon has produced a range of videos and supporting activities for different ages:
If anyone is around tomorrow evening ( Tues) @7:30pm or Wednesday morning @ 10:30am to come to church and help create some squares of patch works, each saying ‘I see you’ I would be truly grateful. Sorry, the dates were accidentally missed off the notice sheet.
The individual squares will form a much bigger patchwork of squares being put together by Open Doors as a petition campaign to highlight persecution of women for their faith to the government. Please see this link for more details.
You don’t need to be artistic and all materials will be provided, but feel free to bring scissors or sewing materials. I will provide glue and drawing materials for those who do not want to sew.
If you are coming and can donate/ lend any of the items below than please bring them with you or let me know. Thank you.
Fabric Scissors – they will be returned
Sewing needles – will be returned
Fabric with patterns on
Fabric drawing/ painting materials
Any unused items will be returned.
God bless and if you can’t attend these events please do pray for them.
Thank you for your continued support with global mission.
