Hang Out – 5th February

Dear Key Stage 2 parents/guardians, February’s Hang Out has been moved from Sun 12th Feb to Sun 5th Feb due to half term commitments. Please send your KS2 children along to CBC on 5th Feb (4:00-5:30pm) for fun, food & fellowship. Rhiannon’s dusting off the parachute and is planning some physically active games, and there’ll be some Biblical content too. Any questions, please see Beth Mills or Rhiannon.

Souper Friday – live music!

Come along on Friday 10th Feb to hear two wonderful violinists from the Wiltshire Music Centre as they play a selection of songs for us in the Café between 12-1pm. This is a free event for everyone attending Souper Friday to enjoy.

Hall Refurbishment

The hall refurbishment continues well and the walls are now newly plastered! Please note that contractors will be laying new flooring commencing Monday 27th March and expected to take 4 days, although any delay or overrun could extend this. Any ministries/activities taking place in the church during that week will be disrupted due to the works taking place in the main hall, middle hall and the 3 side rooms, and will need to consider the practicalities of how they operate for that week. If anyone has any questions please speak to Jonny Street or John Godwin. 

Women’s Retreat 21st-23rd April

Our Women’s Retreat venue is confirmed and we’ll be going to Windmill Farm which is a beautiful spot about an hour’s drive away. Sharon D will be teaching us from God’s Word. Arrival is from 4pm on the Friday. We’ll head home after lunch on the Sunday after a fun-filled weekend of fellowship. If that’s not enough to get you excited, have a look at the Windmill Farm website:
