“We want to thank everyone at CBC for their wonderful support during the MK Staff Training Course. Many people have helped in different ways and we are so grateful for all of this – childcare, catering, refreshments, hospitality driving, etc. etc. Without your efforts we could not have delivered the course and it has been a privilege to watch the church members operating as a team. Please keep praying for the group as they head out to their different fields of service, and for the Kapitaniuk family as they do further training with WEC France and spend time learning English before going to BCS.” Steve and Gill Bryant.
Holiday Club Tues Aug 28th – Fri Aug 31st 10am – 12.30pm
This year will be a water-themed holiday club for primary school aged children.
“How can I help?” I hear you ask. There are sign up sheets at the back of church with many roles available including: registration team, refreshments team, team leaders and helpers, sound, projection, set up and set down, please sign up! There are plenty flyers at the back so please take some for neighbours and friends and encourage them to come. Above all, please pray.
