Women’s Bible Study

The next women’s monthly bible study will be on Monday 24th February at 7:30pm.  Study notes are available on the table at the back. If you would like more information about these meetings, or you would like to have a “study buddy”, please speak to Anne Holmes or one of the women who are part of the women’s ministry team – Vicky Kelly, Vicky Stephenson, Sharon Durant, Christine Coltman.

Holiday Club starts tomorrow!!

The church needs to be set up ready for holiday club so helpers are needed to move chairs and set up gazebos after the service tonight.  This won’t  take long if we have lots of people so please come and help!  Also, bakers, please speak to Rhiannon if you are able to provide snacks for any day next week. Breakfast will be served at 9am for volunteers, so sign up to help and join us for fellowship over breakfast before a wonderful morning of fun and chaos!  Please continue to pray for this event, that God will do a mighty work in our community over the next few days. 

Easter on the Farm

Following the huge success of “Born in a Barn”, our nativity on the farm Christmas 2018, we are very excited to announce that we will be having “Easter on the Farm” at the Prior’s farm in Castle Combe on Easter Saturday, 11th April.  More details to follow but put this date in your diaries, start mentioning it to friends and family and speak to Rhiannon about how you can be involved. We will need lots of willing volunteers to run this event so come and chat with Rhiannon.

Pledges to Support the Arnolds Mead Building Works

As was affirmed at the Church Meeting on 10th February 2020, we will be going ahead with the works at 16 Arnolds Mead with the aim of improving the facilities for our Youth Ministry. We are now close to appointing a builder, and we hope that work will start in May.  The Treasurer will shortly be writing to all those who have pledged financial support for this project, to set out the arrangements by which to redeem pledges. And of course, it is not too late to make a donation if you have not already made a pledge; please contact Roger Hammett (rogerhammett1950@yahoo.co.uk) if you would like to do this.

Opportunities for Giving

If you would like to give to the work of the church on a regular basis, you may wish to consider setting up a monthly standing order through your bank. Alternatively, some people find it helpful to use our envelope giving schemes to make their offering. And of course, if you are a UK tax payer, then the value of your gift can be increased by 25%, at no extra cost to yourself, if you complete a Gift Aid Declaration.  Do please speak to one of the Treasury Team: Paul Garcia (Church on the Green, Rudloe) Roger Hammett (Priory Street 11.15 Service); or Michael Prior (Priory Street 9.15 Service) if you would like to find out more.

New-comers’ Lunch

This will take place after the 11:15am service on the 29th March in the coffee hall next door.  There is a sign up sheet at the back of the church…please come along if you are new to CBC!
