It's Not Fair!

'I, the Lord, love justice'
Isaiah 61:8

Welcome to your weekly newsletter from Crofton Park Baptist Church! This week Pastor Steve is leading our service. Join us on our Facebook page at 10.30am this Sunday or visit our website or subscribe to our channel on YouTube to get an alert when we go live. Set a reminder now and please share the link with friends and family. The church is also open to a limited number of worshippers to attend.

Mission Prayer

This week we are praying for Home Mission (Youth Work)

Home Mission is the name given to the area of Baptist life within the UK. 
Each church is asked to make a financial contribution to outreach which cannot afford the stipend of a minister or youth worker.
This week we are praying for our youth work which has been difficult to do during the pandemic.
Donate online
Donate online
Thank you to all of you who continue to send in your offerings and tithes online. If you are a regular giver or wish to make a donation you can do so online through our website. It's safe, secure and is another way of reducing the risk of spreading contamination through the use of cash or cheques. As ever, you are not obliged to give but if it is your wish to, this route is open to you.

Online Services

From next week we will no longer be pre-recording our services. It has been a bit of a challenge filming during the week, publishing to Facebook and YouTube as well as preparing for service on Sunday. We will now record and stream the service live on Sunday to our YouTube channel. If you have been watching our services on Facebook we would ask that you subscribe to our channel on YouTube instead.

Clocks go back next week

Don't forget that the clocks go back by an hour next Sunday morning. If you have a smartphone or other device it will probably self-adjust. However, other clocks on the microwave, car dashboard, central heating thermostat and other analog devices will need attention.

Tearfund's The Big Quiz Night is back!

Join us online on at 7.30pm, Saturday 14th November for the Big Quiz Night. This is in aid of Tearfund, a Christian Charity fighting to end poverty in some of the most challenging places on earth. Gather your friends and family and have them sign up for the quiz.
Get your ticket and join in!

Volunteers urgently needed

Thank you to those who have already signed up to the rotas. We still need volunteers to sign up for the cleaning rota so that we can clean the church after Sunday service. As we need to do more cleaning than usual due to the government regulations we will need at least three volunteers a week. Please speak to Helen, fill in this form on our website or email her -, if you can spare the time. Many hands make light work.   

Trussell Trust are recruiting

Trussell Trust is working to end the need for food banks. They are currently on the lookout for the people to fill various roles in their organisation. Some of them are:

  • Head of Brand & Marketing
  • People Partner
  • Events Engagement Coordinator
  • Influencer Engagement Manager
If you would like to apply for these and other jobs please visit their website.

Church is open

The church building is open for worship every Sunday.

  • The church doors will open at 10am to allow plenty of time for people to settle in before the service.
  • The car park will be closed so if you are driving to church you will need to park on Huxbear Road or Brockley Grove.
  • We will continue to provide a pre-recorded online service for those who need to or would prefer to, stay at home.

Pastor Steve is on leave

Pastor Steve will be on annual leave from Friday 23rd October to Monday 2nd November.

Standing in the gap

For our former pastor Rev Sue Christie in her new role as village chaplain in the East Midlands, that she will hear from God, discern His leading and chat and possibly pray with villagers as she is out and about. After her cancer, she is still vulnerable healthwise. She sends her love to all at CPBC!

Pray for peace and tolerance in France after the brutal murder of a history teacher there.
