No Ark now until September 24th.  Thank you so much to everyone who came along to the Ark this year and to everyone who helped in any way whether large or small. We had a fantastic year and are very grateful to God for his provision and we look forward with excitement to September. We hope to see you then. Heather & Alexa.

Safe to Grow (Child Protection) Training

This includes helpers for the Ark, Junior Church, Toddler Group & Youth work activities. Please note the date in your diaries and confirm availability with Louise du Toit or Rhiannon Price. We can train 30 at a time, so once full we will arrange a second training date.

Missions and Persecuted Church Prayer

This is taking place on Monday 25th July. God is keeping us busy on the mission front and during this meeting we will be praying for Neal and Lesley Grindrod, the Lancasters and the Sanga Sanga building project, Hannah Little and the Bryants along with Karen and Anna Hurley. We will also be praying for the persecuted Church – our brothers and sisters in Christ worldwide. We would love you to join us from 7:45 to 9:00pm.

Mission Sunday

This is happening on 10th July. This year we have Steve Lancaster preaching at the three services being held at Corsham and Ruth will be speaking to Junior Church during both morning services. To celebrate Mission Sunday we will be having an international tea from 4:00 pm to 5:45pm.

We would like people to bring finger food such as sandwiches, cakes, biscuits and anything else you can think of that comes from a different country.  We will also need donations of non- alcoholic cold drinks. There are sign-up sheets in the coffee hall to show if you are coming, able to help and if you are able to bring any food/ drinks. If you have any questions, speak to Wendy Rowe.

Hannah Little

Hannah Little will be going to serve in the Calais refugee camp, “The Jungle”, and is looking to collect items of clothing to take with her which must be brought to the church before the 17th July. These can be stored on the left hand side of stage in the church.
