Light Party

Rhiannon would like to say a great big thank you to everyone who helped with the light party.  We had a wonderful evening and were blessed with 51 children and some of their parents.  Thank you so much for all your prayers for this event.

Toddler Group

The Toddler Group team is praying for someone to lead them and this amazing evangelistic outreach. They are also in need of more helpers. It is held on Thursday mornings following the school calendar.  We are patiently waiting as the Lord speaks to your heart. Please see Kathy Larkman for details.

Stewards are needed on Sat 3rd December at the Calne Lantern Parade and Guinness World Records™ title attempt for the World’s Largest Nativity. If you could help out, please contact Bible Society (01792 418222) or for more details.

Mission & Persecuted Christians’ Prayer Meeting

The next prayer meeting will be held on Monday 14th November at Priory Street at 7:45pm. During this meeting we pray for our missionaries – (it’s a great time to catch up on current news), and using the Open Doors’ material, Vanessa leads us in a time of prayer for Christians who are persecuted.

Persecuted Church Sunday 20th November

** A window on the Middle East **

On Sunday 20th November we will have a special event focusing on the persecuted church. Tea and cakes will be served at 5pm, and we will be welcoming David and Sue, an experienced couple who have worked for some years in both Ghana and the Middle East, as our speakers. David and Sue are now involved in outreach to migrants in the UK and beyond. They will give a short presentation at around 5.20pm and will share further during the evening service, with David preaching. Please join us for this opportunity to learn more about the Middle East and the situation of Christians there. See Wendy Rowe or Gill Bryant for further details.


We would be grateful for any donations of cakes and biscuits for this mission event. Please can you bring them to church on Sunday morning or at

the beginning of the event. Thank you so much!
