Opportunities to Serve the Corsham Community as a

Foodbank Trustee

The Corsham Churches Foodbank has been serving the community for around seven years now, and many of the Trustees have served from the outset.  Whilst we have the experience, we are all getting older and are looking for new blood to refresh both us, and our work.  If you would like to find out more about serving as one of our Trustees, we would love to hear from you. For more information contact Roger or Hazel Hammett in the 11.15 or call 01249 715816.

Women’s Bible Study

The next women’s bible study will take place on Monday 25th February at 7:30pm.  Notes for the next study – looking at Titus – are on the table at the back.  Please take a copy!

Family service (The Ark)

A family service will take place at Priory Street on 17th March at 3.30pm.  The service will be fairly short and will finish with tea. Please put the date in your diary and start inviting family and friends along. We’ll also be advertising it at the Ark, Toddler group etc.  Many thanks.

Accommodation for summer course 2019

For the last two years, CBC has hosted the WEC MK Staff Training course in July/August. It has been a great opportunity for us to help and get to know people of all ages from numerous countries, whom God has called to serve overseas. The course is scheduled to take place again, from Sunday 21st July to Thursday 1st August 2019. Some participants will only stay till Saturday 27th July. If you are able to provide accommodation (including breakfast and most evening meals) for someone for all or part of this time, please contact Steve and Gill Bryant. Thank you so much for your help.
