Communications

With the oh-so-busy lives we lead sometimes the most important relationships and activities can be neglected. The communications ministry is here to keep members of the congregation in touch with what is happening in church, in Corsham and further afield.

We want to support the CBC community by strengthening individual and corporate relationships and encourage everyone in their Christian journey.

If you have a suggestion please get in touch via the form below or talk to Tim S (usually at 9:15 Priory St service).
