Midweek Service

The next midweek service is on Wed 6th December. The text is 2 Samuel 23.1-7. Eric Seager will be leading and preaching.

Carols by Candlelight – 17th December, 6pm

We’re planning once again to put together a band/ ensemble/ mini-orchestra for the carols by candlelight service. If you play an instrument (to grade 5 or above) and would be interested in playing at the carol service, David Morrell would love to hear from you, with details of what you play if he doesn’t already know! It would be great to hear from everyone who’s interested in taking part as soon as possible.  You can speak to David face to face or email him on davidsuemorrell@gmail.com.

Fight Night

Monday night at CBC is “Fight Night” (second Monday of every month at 8pm). This is a men’s prayer meeting where we pray for our Christian witness, to honour the women in our lives, and for anything and everything as the Spirit leads.

MK Staff Training 2018

This summer (2017) CBC hosted the MK Staff Training course for WEC International. As a church we had the opportunity to meet and be a blessing to new mission workers from all over the world, preparing to serve in schools attended by missionaries’ children. The same course will be held at CBC again in 2018, from Sunday evening 22nd July to Thursday morning 2nd August. We are looking for hosts to provide accommodation, and help with catering and taxi driving for our participants. If you would like to help in any way please talk with Steve or Gill Bryant. Thank you!

Christmas cards for persecuted believers

“Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” Heb.13:3

Christmas cards are available at the back of the church. Please take and send with prayer and a verse of encouragement. Send to Open Doors UK, P.O. Box 6, Whitney, OX296WG.  Prefer via email? See opendoorsuk.org.  Speak to Vanessa Naish if necessary.

Church Directory 2018

Please complete a form, which you can find at the back, if your details have changed or you are new to this fellowship.  Once completed, leave in the box on the table at the back. The directory will be published in January. PLEASE WRITE CLEARLY!! Thank you!

Mission and Persecuted Church Prayer

The December Mission Prayer meeting has been cancelled. ​The next meeting will be on Monday 15th January.

Opportunities for Regular Giving

If you would like to give to the work of the church on a regular basis, you might wish to consider setting up a standing order through your bank.  Alternatively, some people find it helpful to use a weekly numbered blue donation envelope for their offering.  And of course, if you are a UK tax payer, then the value of your gift can be increased by 25%, at no extra cost to yourself, if you complete a Gift Aid Declaration.

If you would like to enrol on the blue envelope scheme for 2018, or would like to set up a standing order or make a Gift Aid Declaration, do please speak to one of the Treasury Team: Roger Hammett (Priory Street 11.15 Service); Lynne Little (Church on the Green, Rudloe) or Michael Prior (Priory Street 9.15 Service).

Christmas Service Offerings – 2017

On Saturday 16 December, the offering taken at the Nativity Service will be given to Compassion UK’s “Most Needed Fund” and will be used to support the work of their Child Survival Programme in many poor communities across the world.  Should you wish to find out more go to https://www.compassionuk.org/give/child-survival-programme/

On Sunday 17 December, the offering from the Carols by Candlelight Service will be sent to support the work of the Oasis Centre, our mission partners in Austria working alongside refugees.  For further information do look at Neal and Lesley Grindrod’s blog http://grindrods.simplesite.com/437190281

If you are able to gift aid your donation, special yellow envelopes for your monetary offering are available on the table at the back of the building.  Please do mark them “NATIVITY – COMPASSION” or “CHRISTMAS – OASIS”.  When the offering is taken on the day, only the contents of the yellow envelopes, and loose cash/cheques will be included in the offering total.  Blue envelopes will be treated as regular giving to the general work of the church.  Please do pray about how you can contribute towards this offering, and speak to Lynne Little (Church on the Green, Rudloe), Michael Prior (Priory Street 9.15am) or Roger Hammett (Priory Street 11.15am) for clarification.

Family Christmas decoration-making workshop

We will be making Christmas decorations and having some festive fun this Saturday 9th December at church between 10am and 12pm. There’ll be glitter and tinsel in abundance!

Summer Mission Celebration, 4pm TODAY!

The summer period has been an exciting time for CBC/ COTG as many people have taken part in mission events either personally or through supporting those who have participated.  This afternoon we will be having a Summer Mission Celebration event where we can hear from those who served on mission events which will then be followed by praying for God’s ongoing work in these mission areas.  We will start at 4pm with finger food and hearing from those who went, followed by the evening prayer service.  We hope as many of you as possible can come and please bring some finger food to share. In addition, the Tanzania Building team will be selling shopping bags, aprons, cafetiere covers and other fabrics in support of the Africa Inland Church mission. The items are made in Morogoro in support of aids widows and their families. You will need cash to purchase these goodies!!

If you are able to help serve drinks, set up the tables and clear up, please let Wendy Rowe know. We look forward to seeing you.

Night of Prayer for Children and Youth

Note the date – 6th October, 7.30pm to midnight! (yes you read correctly!) We will be setting up prayer stations in the church designed to help you pray for the burgeoning youth and children’s work at CBC. We are simply asking you to sign up for one 30 minute slot (sign up sheet at the back). If you have not witnessed Dan’s prayer stations before – you have missed out! They have been developed to help even the most novice of pray’ers to engage with God in prayer through visual props. So why come? You get to spend time with God, you get to bring before Him some crucial ministries in the life of the church, and compared to last time’s all-nighter the latest slot finishes at midnight – it’s a WIN win situation! So sign up now!
