At the Church Meeting on the 22nd October, the following people were unanimously welcomed into Church membership: Julia Benham; Carole Brumfitt; Julian Lawson; Tim Pearce.
The six-month consultation period regarding the leadership restructure of Corsham Baptist Church is now over and the members affirmed the proposed new structure at the last Church Meeting. Furthermore it was affirmed that one change to the Constitution, namely frequency of leadership meetings, be implemented. With these changes being introduced, we look forward to a more effective leadership structure as our Church grows.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Wendy Rowe and Joan Cooper as they come to the end of their deacon roles. They will however continue to play important roles in the life of our church.

Please note there will be a Church Meeting on 4th November at 7pm, following our evening prayer service.

If you have any questions, please speak to one of the leadership team.
Harvest Offering Thank You
On behalf of Tearfund and the Corsham Churches Foodbank, thank you so much to all of the congregations at CBC for their generous support for the Harvest Offering. A total of £1723 was raised to support the work of our partners in Malawi, the EAGLES Relief and Development project run through the Living Waters Church. In addition, the store cupboards at Corsham Churches Foodbank are now well-placed to meet the demands of the winter season following harvest offerings taken across the community.
