Notices 22nd September 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.

*** Harvest Service *** – NEXT SUNDAY!!

On Sunday 29th September, the offering from the Harvest Festival services across all of our congregations will be supporting the work of the Corsham Churches Foodbank and Tearfund.  Non-perishable food items (please see the list attached) collected will be taken to the Foodbank.  Our monetary offering will be sent to Tearfund to support the work of the Living Waters Church in Malawi where their EAGLES project is empowering rural subsistence farming communities to grow crops in a more sustainable way, as they seek to combat the adverse impact of climate change.  Please do pray about how you can contribute towards this offering. 

Some information about both of these projects can be viewed on the noticeboards in the coffee hall at Priory Street.  Alternatively, you can explore on the internet at:

If you are able to gift aid your donation, special yellow envelopes for your monetary offering are available on the table at the back of the building.  Please do mark them “HARVEST – TEARFUND”.  When the offering is taken on the day, only the contents of the yellow envelopes, and loose cash/cheques will be included in the Harvest offering total.  Blue envelopes will be treated as regular giving to the general work of the church.

Please speak to Paul G (Church on the Green), Michael P (Priory Street 9.15) or Roger H (Priory Street 11.15) should you wish to clarify these arrangements.

The Ark

The Ark begins again this month. Hooray!  Saturday 28th September, 10am at Priory Street for Bible stories, craft, puppets and snacks. It’s aimed at 0-7  year olds but ALL are very welcome, with an accompanying adult.

Men’s Curry Night

Taking place at Priory Street, Tuesday 15th October, 7:30pm – men’s curry night.  Please contact Ian H or a member of the men’s ministry team for further details.

Fight Night

A reminder that the men of the church meet for prayer every second Tuesday of each month at 8pm at Priory Street.

Tanzania Building Team

The team got off successfully on Friday but there is still need for someone to collect from Heathrow on Sunday 6th October at 16.15hrs.  There are five to collect so driving the church minibus is probably the way to go. If you can assist, please contact Tim S.  Thank you.
