Opportunities to Serve Corsham

The Corsham Churches Foodbank is currently seeking additional people to serve in the role of Trustee, and as volunteers when the bank is open to serve our community, particularly on Saturday mornings.  If you feel a call towards this work, and would like to explore further, please speak to either Roger or Hazel Hammett (01249 715816) for more information or come to the AGM at 7.30pm on 22 May at St Aldhelms.

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.”
