Mission Event

A reminder that it is the Mission Event this afternoon from 4:15pm to hear how God is working through our missionaries. It will be followed by a time of prayer during the evening service. The Bryant’s and Little’s will be sharing. Please come along and support our missionaries. Please bring any cakes to church between 4:00pm and 4:15pm. If you are able to help serve drinks for half an hour please see Wendy Rowe.  Thank you.

Open Meeting

On Sunday 1st July, at 4:30pm, there will be an open meeting for all members of CBC to come along and ask any questions they may have regarding the future leadership structure of the church. It is an opportunity to seek clarification on anything you may be unclear about.  The meeting will lead into the prayer service at 6pm.

Women’s Bible Study

The next women’s bible study will be on Monday 25th June at 7:30pm.  The study notes are on the table at the back of church.  Please take one in advance of the meeting.  Chat to Kathy Larkman or Anne Holmes if you would like to know more about the women’s meeting.

Prayer for Unsaved Family Members

Do you have family members who are indifferent or hostile to Jesus?  Perhaps they once walked with Jesus but have now turned away from Him?  Come and join us to pray for them on Wednesday June 20th 2018 at CBC 2-3pm.  Please contact Helen Christie for further information.
