WEC Summer Training Course
Our summer course is filling up with participants from around the world! They will be helping to reach the world for Jesus by teaching and looking after the children of missionaries. We appreciate all the offers of accommodation that we have received so far. We need some more places, so if you are able to host a single person or a couple between 23rd and 29th July/3rd August, please see Steve or Gill Bryant. Thank you!
The iHi project (in His image)
Do you parent or care for a family member on the Autism/ADHD spectrum? Would you like to meet with me for some spiritual support and strategies for family life? Please fill in the form at the back of church and place in the envelope if you are interested. Debbie Riall (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Today is the last day the Traidcraft table will be out under Julie King’s leadership. If you would like this ministry to continue and feel you could take it on (the table is out twice a month), please chat to Julie. Thank you.
At the Church Meeting on 17th July 2017 we will be holding an election for the role of Elder of Corsham Baptist Church as part of our plan to expand the Oversight Team. The nomination process will commence on 18th June and conclude on 2nd July.
30 Days of Prayer
Ramadan starts on 27th May. Gill Bryant has ordered some prayer booklets (£2.50 each). If you would like one please see her or go to the website at https://30daysprayer.org.uk/order/
Please take the time to read the latest newsletter from Steve and Ruth Lancaster who are our missionaries in Tanzania. It makes for a most interesting read! There are paper copies on the table at the back or you can go to http://lancsintanz.aimsites.org
Uganda team fundraiser
Do you like breakfast?!! Do you want to support the team going to Uganda? Then join us on Saturday June 17th at 10am for our fundraising brunch! There will be lots of breakfast choices as well as cakes. So why not drop in for something to eat and a chat and raise some funds for the team.
Opportunity to serve Church on the Green
Church on the Green, our church plant in Rudloe, are having a weekend away camping at the Viney Hill Christian adventure center in the Forest of Dean from 8th-10th September 2017. We will be using the time to pray and build our relationships as a congregation and would be blessed if someone from one of the Priory Street congregations could serve by cooking for us over the weekend. We are expecting about 30 to attend and there are well-appointed kitchen and dining facilities, the first meal would be Friday evening and the last Sunday lunch. If you think you could serve us this way please contact Stuart Little (07597 573314) for more details.
This week is half term! Please check with your group leader to see if your ministry/meeting is taking place
