Women’s Bible Study

A warm welcome awaits you at Women’s Bible Study on Monday 27th September starting at 7.30pm at Priory Street.  We are about to embark on a new series and will find ourselves in the gospel of John where we will be looking deeper into the ‘I Am’ statements.

This is an invitation for all women at CBC and Church on the Green; an opportunity for fellowship and to study God’s Word together.  You can download our first study here.  We encourage you to look at this with your study buddy in advance.  If you would like to be paired with a study buddy then please contact Anne H, Victoria K or Christine C.  Contact details can be found in the church directory.

Blessings

UPDATED WITH TICKET LINK: Meeting with potential new pastor (13th June)

The Oversight Team are keen that as many people as possible have the opportunity to meet the possible new senior pastor who is visiting to preach at Priory Street on June 13th, 2021. To that end we are organising two meetings after the service to be held in the Church Hut garden, so that more people can have the opportunity to meet and chat with the candidate following the service.

Our STRIPE (COVID guidance) team, have prepared the following document that outlines the guidelines we will be asking all attendees to follow for these meetings in order that we can provide as safe an environment as possible for everyone attending.

If you would like to attend, please do take the time to read this document.

Instructions for Meet & Greet (v0.4 05.06.21)

  1. A Pastor will be visiting CBC on Sunday 13th June. He is a possible candidate for fulfilling the role of CBC Senior Pastor, and as such will be preaching at the 10am service.
  2. On completion of the service, the aim will be for as many of the CBC congregation to socialise with the Pastor and his wife.
  3. In the event of fine weather, this event will take place on the church lawn. Wet weather arrangements TBC.
  4. To remain within COVID restrictions, outdoor church events are currently limited to a bubble of 30 people, whilst maintaining social distancing rules.
  5. Therefore, to enable maximum engagement, and taking a risk-based approach, there will be two separate meetings on completion of the service, each consisting of 30 people.

      1. Tickets booked via eventbrite.co.uk/e/158476117333;

      2. Timings: 12:15am -1:15pm.
  7. Note: household groups can meet and chat together but for people outside of households, the 2m rule should be respected.
  8. Further mitigation:
    1. By booking a ticket, people will be agreeing to the following conditions:
      1. Not exhibiting COVID symptoms and/or do not need to isolate;
      2. Commit to no handshake or other physical contact with minister;
    2. Eventbrite will state current status of minister with regards to COVID mitigation:

      2. The minister and his wife will take a lateral flow test;
      3. They are not coming from an area where new COVID variants are active or have been identified.

Annual and Ordinary Church Meeting

On Monday 17th almost forty households met in the Sanctuary with a further score online to reflect on the year concluding Aug 20, thank Norman and Roger for service (almost) completed and to hold elections for several posts going forward.

With apologies for the plainness of most of these slides, I nonetheless commend them to you as they contain a number of useful links. Minutes will be available shortly.

Corsham Town Carols

Christmas tree in Corsham high street

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.

The broadcast will ‘premiere’ on YouTube

at 6pm on Tuesday 22nd December

(and will be available to catchup later)

Date for your diary: A very 2020 Nativity

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…

  1. Everyone (and I mean everyone) from any service is very welcome
  2. Everyone (and I mean everyone) should dress up in some kind of Christmassy or Nativity-esque way – use your imagination
  3. 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).

Discover the Road to Bethlehem – nearer than you think!

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.

Church on 22 Mar 2020

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:
