Hebrews 6:18-19

This week

Friday 7.30pm - CPBC Zoom meetup and quiz

Mission Prayer

This week we are praying for Street Pastors 

Street Pastors engage with people on the streets to care for them, listen to them and help them. They work together with other partners in the night-time economy to make communities safer.
As the night-time economy has come to a halt, they are turning their attention to supporting frontline workers, raising funds to provide PPE to keep them safe at work.

Giving your offering 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.

Sponsor Judith - Unlock Walk goes virtual

Unlock is a Christian charity that supports inner city churches of any denomination to bring the Bible to ‘text-shy’ and ‘non-book learners. We usually have four of our members take part in the Unlock Walk to help raise money for this charity but not this year. Find out more Unlock Urban website.
However, Judith will be taking part so please support her and those who would've taken part by giving generously through our website or contact her. Thank you to those who have already given.

Home for Good

Due to additional pressures on families from the Covid-19 pandemic, and specifically, the lockdown, including reduced incomes, mental health challenges and domestic violence the number of children needing care is forecast to significantly increase. Home for Good is asking Christians in around Lewisham who may be able to open their home to a vulnerable child to explore with Home for Good and Lewisham Borough Council whether fostering is for you. Watch the video below and visit their site to find out more.
