Easter Thank Offering

The Easter Thank Offering raised £2,238 towards the construction work at the Sanga Sanga Conference Centre in Tanzania.  Steve Lancaster, our man on the ground, writes: “Great to hear that there will be a CBC gift coming Sanga’s way! We didn’t want to bank on anything, as the team were no longer coming out – but this will be a tonic to the ears of our building supervisor! We’re heading up to the opening of the conference centre in early July, and we hope that most of the work will be done by then – but that depends on funding – so this will be very welcome. We very much appreciate the support of CBC and it makes a huge difference knowing that the church is very much behind the work we are doing, and the work we’re connected with.”

Easter Thank Offering – NEXT TWO SUNDAYS

25th March & 1st April 2018

Easter speaks of God’s love for us, and His will to spread that love among all peoples. On Sunday 25th March and 1st April 2018, we will be holding an Easter Thank Offering to support the work of our mission teams that will be going to Tanzania later this year, to undertake building works at the AIM Sanga Sanga conference centre (May), and to support a conference for AIM missionaries (October).  We are aiming to raise £4,000 towards the cost of building materials, and if additional money is raised it will be lodged in our Restricted Mission Trips Fund and used to support self-funding adults going on overseas mission in due course.  Please do pray about how you can contribute towards this offering.  Special yellow envelopes for your Thank Offering are available on the table at the back of the building. Please mark the envelope EASTER MISSION THANK OFFERING, and if you are able to gift aid your donation, please complete the declaration on the envelope.  If you are not able to do this, please just score out the declaration. When the offering is taken on both days, only the contents of the yellow envelopes will be included in the Thank Offering total.  Blue envelopes and loose cash/cheques will be treated as regular giving to the general work of the church.  Please speak to Lynne Little (Rudloe), Michael Prior (Priory Street 9.15) or Roger Hammett (Priory Street 11.15) should you wish to clarify these arrangements.
