Notices for 5th July 2020

Tim Stephenson,

If you are visiting today, we're thrilled to have you with us. We come here to worship God by singing, preaching the Bible and praying together. God is the highest priority in our lives because through Jesus we have forgiveness from our sins and the hope of a new life spent with Him!

  • Please switch off your mobile phone when you come in to the hall.
  • Please remember to park in one of the town car parks; not along Priory St.
  • Please ensure your child/ren do not play on the stage, up in the balcony or in the graveyard either before or after the service.
  • We have large print bibles available for anyone who might need one. Please ask one of the ushers.

Church on the Green @ 10am

Rob will be leading interactive Bible Study and prayer as last week. You’ll be able to join online or via a standard phone call as follows:

Priory Street – joint service @ 10am

This week we will celebrate communion either together on Zoom at 10:45 or via a recording after the sermon so please choose the video accordingly.

The ‘new normal’ continues with prayer and fellowship – contact your LIFE group leaders for when and how that is happening. Or use the contact form if you’re not part of one but would like to join in.

Junior Church

Activities for various age groups will be live on the CBC Junior Church channel on Sunday morning.

Evening prayer @ 8pm

Maybe it is easier to concentrate in the evening, after the children are in bed? If you’d like to join a small group, via Zoom, for a couple of Bible readings and to share and receive prayer reach out to Joey, Natalie or use the contact form.

As trailed last week, we will be re-opening the Sanctuary at Priory Street to all within the fellowship and indeed the wider community from this week. There has been a lot of careful consideration put into this and we believe we have done all that we can to reduce the risks of virus transmission. This included removing Bibles from use, so please bring your own. Dan will also start his Wednesday group in person.

We ask that no one with symptoms comes and we will need to record your names and contact details in case someone subsequently displays symptoms and we need to let you know. You can read our full set of precautions including the privacy statement about how to we will keep your personal information safe here.

Love Nations – a WEC event

Steve and Gill were in a WEC prayer meeting this week and heard about an online event to pray for unreached parts of the world. There will be several speakers and a short devotional from the WEC UK director, Malcolm Gray. It is on Friday 10th July from 7.30 to 8.30 pm.
