All are warmly welcome to celebrate Pentecost Sunday at a service at St Bartholomew’s at 6pm this coming Sunday. Our own Rob D will be preaching.

Urgent Children’s Work Helper Volunteers Needed

CBC is hugely blessed with a large number of children – but this means we need your help. We have a legal responsibility to have enough helpers for each group, otherwise groups have to stop. Helpers do not need to prepare or lead anything, we just need you to support the leader and children where needed. You should be prepared to have an enhanced DBS check and attend safeguarding training. You will be able to indicate on the application form how often you are prepared to help. 

9:15 Junior Church

The 9:15 junior church has come under huge pressure in recent weeks as we must have at least two adults for each group, suitably DBS checked and safeguarding trained.  We are grateful to two parents for stepping forward so that we can keep this valuable work going in the short term but we could really do with more support going forward. Please would 9:15 and 11:15 congregation members consider whether they could support this important work for our children, maybe on an occasional basis. For more information and/or to apply to help, please click on the link here.

11:15 Junior Church (3-7 year age group)

This group can be a large one and it sometimes requires a third adult per session. It may be possible that, if there are fewer children some Sundays, you can return back into the service. For more information and/or to apply to help, please click on the link here.

FLAGS (Wednesdays 4:30-5:30pm primary-aged children)

This is a group run by Rhiannon at Priory Street where primary-aged children gather to do crafts, activities and hear Bible stories. For more information and/or to apply to help, please click on the link here.

Thank you. For further information, please contact Rhiannon ( or Elspeth (

Funeral service for Angela Hilliard

We grieve with our sister Margaret Hilliard on the recent death of her daughter Angela. Margaret would like to invite her friends at CBC to attend the funeral service on Friday 9th June at 2.30pm and the interment at Ladbrook Lane cemetery afterwards. Refreshments will be available in the church hall following the service. Please lift up Margaret and all the family in your prayers at this time.

Church Barn Dance – Saturday 15th July

There is still space for you to sign up for the church barn dance in July. Tickets cost £5 per person and can be purchased in advance from the Ovens family. You’re asked to bring something for the bring-and-share buffet. Dig out your dancing shoes and let’s make this a fun night for the whole church!
