Notice sheet for 4th June 2017

Pentecost Service

Tonight CBC will be hosting the ecumenical Pentecost service at 6pm.  We look forward to welcoming members of other local churches to our fellowship – it promises to be a really blessed time.


The funeral of our dear brother, Paul Taylor, will take place at Priory Street on Friday 9th June at 2pm.  Everyone is welcome to attend the service as we celebrate Paul’s life.

WEC Summer Training Course

Our summer course is filling up with participants from around the world! They will be helping to reach the world for Jesus by teaching and looking after the children of missionaries. We appreciate all the offers of accommodation that we have received so far. We need some more places, so if you are able to host a single person or a couple between 23rd and 29th July/3rd August, please see Steve or Gill Bryant.  Thank you!

Please read the enclosed leaflet which gives full details on what serving and hosting opportunities there are for the WEC training attendees.

Infant Dedication

Next Sunday morning, 11th June, at the 11:15am service there will be an infant dedication for Emmeline Street, daughter of Jonny and Amy.  We look forward to welcoming their family and friends to this special occasion.

Midweek Service

Our next midweek service will be held on Wednesday 7th June at 2pm. Eric Seager will be leading and David Morrell preaching.  The text is Ruth 4.1-17 and the service will be followed by tea/coffee and homemade cake.

Opportunity to serve Church on the Green

Church on the Green, our church plant in Rudloe, are having a weekend away camping at the Viney Hill Christian adventure centre in the Forest of Dean from 8th-10th September 2017.  We would be blessed if someone from one of the Priory Street congregations could serve by cooking for us over the weekend.  We are expecting about 30 to attend and there are well-appointed kitchen and dining facilities, the first meal would be Friday evening and the last Sunday lunch. If you think you could serve us this way please contact Stuart Little for more details.

Uganda team fundraiser

Please join us on Saturday June 17th at 10am at Priory St, for our Uganda fundraising brunch! There will be lots of breakfast choices as well as cakes. So why not drop in for something to eat & a chat and raise funds for the team.

On 13th June there will be a men’s barbeque.  Please speak to Ian Holmes or Paul Kelly if you would like further details or would like to attend.

A reminder that every first Sunday of the month our evening service will be a prayer meeting and every third Sunday of the month the evening service will be a praise & worship evening with testimonies. Everyone is welcome to attend!
