Prayer for Unsaved Family Members

Monthly Prayer Meeting for Pewsham
A reminder that there is prayer for Pewsham – second Sunday evening of each month. See Phil & Helen Osmond for details. Those who live in or near it will know where it is.
Please take a copy of Steve and Gill’s very interesting newsletter from the table at the back.
A reminder that the next Craft Club will take place on Saturday 2nd June at 10am at Priory Street. Please chat to Hazel Hammett for more details of this monthly group.
A call for help – accommodation needed
From 22nd July to 1st August, CBC will be hosting the MK Staff Training course on behalf of WEC International. This is the same course that was held at the church last year and it is being run by Steve and Gill Bryant. There is an opportunity for church members to help by providing accommodation for one or more of our participants, who will be serving God overseas in a role that supports world mission by teaching or caring for missionary children. If you are able to offer accommodation for all or part of this time, please contact Steve and Gill.
We will be holding a Mission Matters event on Sunday 10th June, starting at 4:15pm, with tea and cakes. Steve and Gill Bryant will be sharing about their recent trips and forthcoming WEC training in July. Stuart, Lynne and Matthew Little will be sharing about their forthcoming mission work with Mercy Ships.
This is an exciting opportunity to hear from our missionaries and to find out how we can support them in their work. If you are able to bring some cakes/ sandwiches or help serve drinks please see Wendy Rowe. Thank you for your continued support with our mission work.
