Thank you!

We had an amazing day on the farm last Saturday. God provided in abundance – sunshine, people, fun and fellowship! Thank you to everyone who was involved on the day: actors, stewards, bakers and animals! Thank you for all your prayers. Please continue to pray for those who attended, for their hearts to be softened and to process what they heard and saw, for seeds to be watered and opportunities for them to find out more. Thank you to Harvey (Jasmine W’s brother) who made a film of the day. Check it out here:

Discipleship Explored – Sunday 24th April

Please join us at Priory Street this Sunday evening at 6pm for the first of our Discipleship Explored sessions.

If you’d like join us for some or all of this course, please let Ruth know at or just turn up!

Midweek service – 27th April

Join us for songs, crafts, Bible stories and puppets! Spaces can be reserved via Eventbrite – please click here. Check out the Facebook page too for more information.

Church on the Farm – joint service on Sunday 1st May

Now that spring is here, our joint services are moving out of doors and will be held on John P’s farm for the next few months. All our congregations are invited to join us at 11am at Upper Combe Farm, SN14 7HE on the first Sunday of every month. The farm is accessible to all and those with limited mobility will be able to park close to the barn where we meet. Toilet facilities are also available.

Craft Group

We are pleased to report that our Craft Group, after a long Covid break, has got off to a great start with a few newcomers attending. The group meets usually on the first Saturday in the month. Pam has been leading this group from the beginning, with assistance over the years from Kathy E, Hazel H and now Cathy S. We are now looking for a new (younger?) person to take over the leadership of the group. Both Pam and Cathy S will continue to attend and offer support. If you are a Craft lady, please pray about whether the Lord could use you in this ministry. Pam Mitchell would love to hear from you and talk you through all the details.

NB please note for your diaries that the next meeting will be on 7th May but our June session will be pushed back a week to 11th June.

Volunteer needed – 11.15 service

We are looking for someone to take responsibility for setting up and clearing away the communion table at the 11.15 service, on the second Sunday of each month. As we return to serving the congregation from the front, this will mean preparing the trays and the bread, as well as collecting and washing up the glasses afterwards. If you feel that you would like to serve in this way, please see Ruth in the church office. Thank you.

Thank you from Oasis

The Oasis Centre in Austria is one of CBC’s mission partners. They serve the many refugees they meet from all over the world. We recently sent them a financial gift and they have responded with this message: “We are so thankful for your generous donation to support our ministry. We are grateful for our ongoing partnership with you!” If you would like to find out more about the ministry of Oasis, have a look at their website here and join us at our next mission prayer meeting on 3rd May to hear about the latest news and prayer needs.
