Notices for 18th September, 2016

Midweek Service

The next midweek service will take place this Wednesday, 21st September at 2pm. The text is Philippians 2. 12-30 and Eric will be leading and preaching.

Oasis Visit

Louise du Toit and Joan Cooper will be flying to Vienna tomorrow. Please pray for their visit to the Grindrods and the Oasis Centre. They return on the 26th September. Thank you to those who have offered with lifts to/from Bristol Airport.

Toddler Group

Sue Sapiano is stepping down from LEADING Toddler Group on Thursday mornings (school calendar). A new leader is needed for this successful friendship evangelism outreach. Will you prayerfully consider it? Please speak to Sue Sapiano or Kathy Larkman.


The next Child Protection Training will take place on Saturday the 8th October. The session starts at 9:00am in the coffee hall. Please make sure you arrive in good time.

The Ark

This starts again on 24th September.  Do come along and join us for puppets, craft, songs, bible stories and cake. It’s aimed at 0-7 year olds but all are welcome. We particularly need extra help in the kitchen – preparing and serving drinks and cake but also people to pray are always very much needed.  Please speak to either Alexa Simm or Heather Chilcott if you are able to help.

2nd October, Harvest

A reminder that our Harvest service this year will take place on Sunday 2nd October across all our congregations. We will be taking collections of both non-perishable food (please refer to the bookmark) and a monetary collection. The food will go to the Corsham Foodbank and the money will be shared between Tearfund and the Oasis Refugee Centre in Vienna. Please use the gift aid envelopes at the back.

“One Anothering”:

Gift of God’s Grace For Our Growth in Christ

This is the name of the ladies’ bible study for the school calendar year 2016-2017! Our women will come together to address the theme of “One Anothering” from scripture and how God actually uses our relationships with one another to conform us into Christ’s likeness. Every relationship, even difficult ones, is a gift of God’s grace for our growth in the knowledge and likeness of Christ. If you would like to be involved, please contact Kathy Larkman, Anne Holmes or Vicky Stevenson. Also check Grace Place blog for additional information.

Please take a sheet about the studies from the table at the back as well as a note on one-to-one meetings which we call Study Buddies.

The bible study questions for our next meeting on Monday 26th September are now available on the table at the back.

Craft Group

A reminder that the craft group will meet again on Saturday 1st October from 10am – 12:30pm. Please contact Pam Mitchell or Kathy Ewins if you would either like to attend or know more about this monthly group.
