Prayer for gospel expansion /prayer walks

As we seek the Lord’s will regarding the proposal to join COTG and the 9.15 service into a new congregation, it’s important to join together to pray as one body. We will have the opportunity to do that on Saturday mornings from 8-9am at Priory Street, starting from tomorrow morning and continuing indefinitely. Please do join us if you can.

In addition, the congregation leaders of COTG and 9.15 will be leading prayer walks over consecutive weeks starting in April and alternating between Rudloe and Neston. Dates and details will be announced nearer the time.

Hall Refurbishment – Helpers Required

A reminder that the new flooring will be laid in the coffee hall from week commencing Monday 27th March. Any ministries/activities taking place in the hall, middle room, offices and prayer room will be disrupted by this work, and ministry leaders will need to consider the practicalities of how they operate for that week. 

Helpers are required on Sunday 26th from 2pm to clear the hall and offices. 
Help is also needed to put everything back after the new floor is down on Saturday 1st April from 2pm. 

If you are able to help with this please speak to Jonny Street or John Godwin. 

Hang Out – date change

The next Hang Out was scheduled for Sunday 9th April but, as this is Easter Sunday, it’s been brought forward a week to 2nd April. Parents – please note in your diaries!

Hope Explored

We will be running another Hope Explored course on the Sunday evenings of 23rd & 30th April and 7th May.

Pray for Malawi – cyclone destruction

Our member Steve Lancaster, who serves with The Word For the World, requests prayer for those affected by Cyclone Freddy in Malawi. A TWFTW Bible translator – Arnold – has lost crops, goats and household items in the floods. Steve has received the following message from a local pastor: “Houses and church buildings have been taken away, rice, millet and maize fields have been swept away. We have also lost many lives. It’s a disaster! We have 100 people in our church who have lost everything. There has been no electricity in our region since the rain started (4th Feb). Though our friends have gone the Lord has spared us. I had 5 goats which were also taken by the waters [his livelihood]. We need your prayers as the damage continues.”

Ladyfield induction service

Ladyfield Evangelical Church will be inducting their new pastor, James Stewart, on Saturday 25th March at 3pm, followed by refreshments. Paul Mallard will be speaking, and all at CBC are warmly invited to attend.
