Church day out

We intend to have a coach trip to Weston Super Mare on Sunday 17th July leaving Corsham at 10:30 and returning at about 18:30. Costs will be dependent upon numbers going but expect around £5 per seat. The intention will be to find a spot on the beach as a base for the day where we will hold a short time of worship together.  There will be opportunity to relax, catch up with old friends from the other congregations, play some games and have a wander around the seafront and, if you like, visit the pier.  You will need to bring a picnic lunch.   Any questions please speak to Stuart or Lynne. Please note there will be a service at Priory Street on that morning for those who do not wish to go on this trip. The time of this service will be confirmed in due course.

Christianity Explored

A new Christianity Explored course will be starting this Thursday, 5th May. If you are interested in attending, or would like to know more, please contact Helen Christie or Elspeth Pitman as soon as possible.

Corsham Money & Debt Advice Centre

The ministry is flourishing and we are receiving many new clients. We currently only have four debt advisors so we are anxious to recruit more so that we can continue to serve the local community. If you feel that this is a role you could do, we would love to hear from you! For more information and to discuss what we do, please talk to Alan Christie, Alan Simon, Dave New or Roger Hammett.

Tuesday Lunch Club

The next one will be held on Tuesday 10th May at 12 o’clock. This event is for our seniors and if you would like further information, please chat to Michael or Wendy Prior. Thank you.
