Thank you to all who have been in touch or planned to come to the work party next Saturday but this has been postponed and will now take place in the new year.
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
- Fabric glue
- Sewing needles – will be returned
- Sewing thread
- 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.
Once again the weather has started to turn and so it is time for our annual mission tea and feedback session.
It will start at 5:00pm with cakes and coffee. If you are able to donate any cakes/ biscuits than please bring them to the church kitchen just before 5:00pm.
Feedback will start at 5:30pm and finish for 7pm.
We are looking forward to you joining us to see how God has been working through many different events in so many different ways. If you are interested in short or long term mission than come along and find out more about mission work.
Thank you, Wendy
For the Waodani people living deep in the Ecuadorian jungle, murder, revenge and death by spear were a way of life. In 1956, 10 missionaries launched ‘Operation Auca’ to share God’s love with this previously unreached stone age tribe. Stepping into the jaws of death, the world watched on to see how the story would end.
Reckless Abandon is the stage adaptation of this inspiring true story of love, forgiveness and fearless faith.
In partnership with the MAF, 4Front Theatre are proud to present Reckless Abandon, the true and inspiring story of Elisabeth Elliot and the ‘Operation Auca’ missionaries.
Reckless Abandon is a feature length production (2hrs inc. 15 min interval) starring 10 actors.
Tickets priced £7 + booking fee. Ticket price goes fully to support the actors. Book at: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/reckless-abandon-corsham-baptist-church-tickets-60866242570 or reserve a ticket through the office to pay on the night.
Join us for a fun evening to celebrate the launch of “Jonah and the bony-finned asteroid fish” – a sci-fi adventure of a washed-up prophet. With readings, quiz, book-signing and supper.
We do need to hear if you want to come so we can cater appropriately so please sign up at the back of church or use the form below.

The Mission Shaped Ministry course helps to make ‘Mission Impossible’ to become ‘Mission Possible’. It helps to find effective ways in which you can share your faith with friends and neighbours, without scaring them away.
It shows you that mission is not difficult and anyone can do it!
What could God be calling YOU to do to change your town or village?
The course will focus especially on mission and ministry in a rural context, in market towns and villages like Chippenham and the surrounding area.
This taster session is taking place on 11th November 10am-1pm in Chippenham. The speaker is Tim Lea from Fresh Expressions.
The course will launch on 27th January 2018. Please speak to Phil Osmond, visit missionshapedministry.org or contact the course runners directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details of this exciting initiative!
