Notices 20th October 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.

Update on Steve and Ruth Lancaster

Steve is due to have a sinus operation on the 23rd October and will then need two weeks to recover.  If Steve makes a full recovery, they can travel back to Tanzania between 8th-18th November.  Please pray for patience, for the surgery and for a full recovery.

Christmas Carol 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 Sawyer, whose details can be obtained from the church office.

Meal Train

We are on the look out for more volunteers for the CBC Meal Train which offers meals to church members who are newly out of hospital, have recently had a baby, are struggling with ill-health etc. It is a wonderful service that offers support in a practical sense to our church family and beyond. If you are able to spare a meal on an ad hoc basis and don’t mind being contacted when the rota is put into action time, please email sarahblaikley@gmail.com. Many thanks.

Open Doors’ Event

On Sunday 3rd November, starting at 4pm, there will be an Open Doors’ event at Priory Street.  We will have a speaker from Open Doors and will be serving refreshments.  The normal Gathering to Pray service will follow at 6pm. The International Day for Prayer for the Persecuted Church is being held globally on 17th November but as a church, we are marking this day on the 3rd November.  If anyone can assist Vanessa with teas, she would be most grateful! Please contact either Vanessa or Louise in the office. Many thanks.
