Harvest Service Offerings

Today we are holding Harvest services across all the CBC congregations.  Our offering will consist of non-perishable food as well as a monetary collection.  The food will go to support the work of the Corsham Churches Foodbank, and the money will be given to Tearfund to support a local church led project which is teaching rural communities to farm in a more sustainable way as they seek to combat the adverse impact of climate change.

If you are able to gift aid your donation, special yellow envelopes for your monetary offering are available on the table at the back of the building.  Please do mark them “HARVEST – TEARFUND”.  Only the contents of the yellow envelopes, and loose cash/cheques will be included in the Harvest offering total.  Blue envelopes will be treated as regular giving to the general work of the church.

** Reformation Remix Show – TONIGHT at 6:30pm!! (doors open 6pm) **

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation starting with Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the door of the church in Wittenberg. We owe a great deal to this period of church history, and to mark the occasion the Bible Society have created a show to tell the historical story in a very engaging and entertaining way.  Corsham Baptist Church is hosting a live performance of the show tonight at 6:30pm.  It’s a free event, so please invite your friends!!

Midweek Service

The next midweek service is taking place on Wednesday 11th October at 2pm.  The text is 2 Samuel 6.  Eric Seager will be leading and David Morrell preaching. Please join us for the service and stay for fellowship over light refreshments in the coffee hall at 3pm.

INSPIRE – WEBA training for people working children, youth and families

There is an opportunity to join with others from our region at Cirencester BC for a day of inspiration and encouragement on Saturday 14th October 10am – 4pm.  To see what is on the agenda and to sign up please visit  ​Speak to Rhiannon if you want more information​.

Light Party

Our annual light party will be held on Tuesday 31st October from 5-7pm.  Last year we had over 40 children attend – a wonderful outreach event! Much help is needed for this event so please sign up at the back or speak to Rhiannon to find out about how you can help.

No Youth Group Tonight

Due to Reformation Remix taking place, please note there is no youth meeting this evening.

Youth Weekend – DRIVERS needed

We require some willing drivers to transport young people to our annual youth weekend. We need a single driver to take young people from Corsham to the centre we will be staying at (by Chepstow) leaving at 4pm, on Friday 20th Oct.  We also need two drivers to transport young people back to Corsham, arriving at the centre for 3:30pm, on Sunday 22nd Oct.   If you can help, speak to Dan.

Calling all regular, occasional or interested sound system users

If you want to learn how to use the Priory Street sound system, find out more about how it works or want to improve your use of it then please register for one of our training sessions. They are planned for 23 Oct and 6 Nov, starting at 7:30pm and running for an hour in Priory Street.  They will be relatively informal and based on your needs so please talk to Steve Chilcott, so he can understand the level of interest and plan the content. You will usually find Steve hovering around the mixing desk before and after the 11:15 service! If you know someone else who would be interested in or benefit from this training please let them know.
