Notices 10th November, 2019

Louise,

If you are visiting today, we're thrilled to have you with us. We come here to worship God by singing, preaching the Bible and praying together. God is the highest priority in our lives because through Jesus we have forgiveness from our sins and the hope of a new life spent with Him!

  • Please switch off your mobile phone when you come in to the hall.
  • Please remember to park in one of the town car parks; not along Priory St.
  • Please ensure your child/ren do not play on the stage, up in the balcony or in the graveyard either before or after the service.
  • We have large print bibles available for anyone who might need one. Please ask one of the ushers.

Family Quiz Night

There will be a family quiz/pizza night for the 9:15 congregation next Saturday, 16th November from 5pm.  Chat to Tim S for details.

Evening Service 17th November

As you may be aware, one of our mission partners at CBC is the neighbouring Melksham Baptist Church. On 17th Nov there will be a practical opportunity to show our support as we’ll be holding the monthly praise party there rather than at Priory Street. It would be lovely to have a really great turnout. Joey (from 9:15) will be leading and the start will be 6pm. So if you’re going why not talk to some friends and see if you can fill a car?   http://www.melkshambaptistchurch.org.uk/contacts/map/

Midweek Service

This will take place on Wednesday, 13th November at 2pm.  The text is James 3.1-12. Eric will be leading and preaching and there will be communion.

Christmas Carols by Candlelight Service

Our Christmas carols by candlelight service this year is being held on Sunday 15th December at 6pm at Priory Street.  If you would like to be involved in this service by way of singing or playing, please contact Nancy S, whose details can be obtained from the church office.

Work Party

Martin S will be holding a work party at Priory Street on Saturday 23rd November from approx. 10am-12pm  Work to be undertaken will include cleaning of “hard to reach” areas of the building, decorating, general tidying up etc. before Christmas.  Please come along if you can help.  Bacon butties will be on offer too!!

Women’s November Bible Study

There will be another women’s bible study on Monday 25th November at 7:30pm.  The study sheets are on the table at the back so please make sure you take a copy in advance of the meeting.

Last Ark of 2019

Come along to Priory Street at 10am on the 30th November for the last Ark of the year!  The Ark is a children’s service aimed at 0-7 year olds and we’ll be celebrating Christmas early with lots of fun, puppets, songs, video and crafts.  It’s all topped off with drinks and cake served at 11.00am. Children are very welcome with an accompanying adult so come along and spread the word to family and friends.

International Bring & Share Lunch, 24th November

Revelation 7 tells us about that amazing moment where people from every tribe, nation, people and language gather together to worship Christ. On Sunday 24th November, we’re going to have a foretaste of that moment with an international bring and share lunch!

Bring some food you like, and we’ll enjoy eating it together after our 10am service at the MOD community centre in Rudloe (a.k.a Crumpets). See you there!

Church on the Green new congregational leader

COTG are looking for a new congregational leader. The timeline for what’s happening when is below:

Sunday, 10th November – Nominations close after the service today. Give them to Rob, Adrian, or Paul.

Sunday 24th November – Election takes place for COTG members after the church service. (Before we have our international lunch!)
