Your Feedback is Needed

Following the visit of a candidate for the Senior Pastor post this weekend we would like to hear any comments/feedback from you. Please contact any member of the SPOT team with your comments; we would really appreciate your feedback. 

Please ensure that we receive your comments by the end of Monday 14th June.

As a reminder the SPOT team members are: Rob Perks, John Prior, Dan Ovens, Rob Durant, Adrian Pillinger, Ian Holmes and Alan Christie.

Baptism Classes

While national restrictions have limited what we can do in church life, God is not limited and can still be seen at work in His people. As a result, we have had some interest in baptism classes.

We currently have a class running and are looking to start a second class in the near future.

Therefore, if this is something that God has been prompting you to consider then please speak to Eddie, Rob or Dan for more information.

Attending classes does not mean you must proceed but will enable you to think through baptism further and consider whether you are ready to take this step of obedience at this time

Ark on the Farm Saturday 26th June 10.30am

A Children’s Service led by the Ark Team from Corsham Baptist Church. This is our final Ark of the school term relocated to a farm field in Castle Combe. 

There is lots of space for social distancing. 

Parking on site and Toilets and hand washing facilities are provided.

Please bring something to sit on and some lunch for a socially distanced picnic.
