Open Meeting

Next 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 held tomorrow, Monday 25th June at 7:30pm.  The study notes are at the back.

The last Ark of the school year!

The last Ark of the school year is on Saturday 30th June at Priory Street from 10am.  Do come along and join us as there are lots of exciting things being planned (including two puppet songs!!)  The morning is aimed at 0-7 year olds but all are welcome, with an adult.  God-willing we will be finishing with a BBQ (which will be free) so please pray for good weather!

Please note there is no ark over the summer holidays. The next one will be on September 29th.
