Louise,

Ladies’ Bible Study

The next study will take place Monday evening, 26th October, 7.30-9.15pm. Please speak to Anne Holmes for more information. Study sheets are on the table at the back.

“Grace Place”

Check out our new blog, GRACE PLACE, which is geared to women of all ages in our CBC and Rudloe communities and beyond. Look to see what books are recommended so far. Have you read any of them? Great stuff. We always appreciate feedback!

The Ark

Don’t forget the Ark on Saturday 31st October (the same day as the Light Party!) at 10.00am. We will also be thinking about Light (and Heaven) with puppets, bible story, songs, instruments, craft and cake.  Aimed at 0-7 year olds but all welcome.  Come and join in the fun!!

Annual Light Party

Next Saturday (October 31st) is our Light Party.  Please sign up at the back of church if you are able to help with this event.  We still need someone to lead and organise  worship, which is an important part of the light party, as this is a way for the non church children to really get involved with learning about Jesus in a fun way with actions.  There are also registration forms for children, so please take these and fill them in to save time on the night.  We need help to move the chairs after this evening’s service, please come and help at 7.30, the more, the merrier!  If you are coming to help at the event, please could you meet at church at 4pm in order to set up the final things and to have a time of prayer before the event.  We also need to move the chairs back after the event, if you can help with this then please come at 7.30pm on Saturday to help with this.  Finally, please pray for the children who will be attending and also for all the volunteers helping with this outreach event. Thanks!

‘Connected’ is a new group designed to give busy parents an opportunity to get together to relax, have fun, share a meal and develop their relationships with Christian brothers and sisters, without the distraction of children!

Free Christmas Stickers from the Bible Society

This year the Bible Society’s free Christmas stickers have been designed by Emma Skerratt who used to attend Corsham Baptist Church.  The stickers show the names of Jesus and are designed to be used to spread the real meaning of Christmas eg. on your Christmas card envelopes.  You can find details about them at biblesociety.org.uk/stickers2015. If you don’t have access to the internet or prefer talking to a person, please ask Heather or Steve Chilcott!
